Worth the drive
On the first Saturday of every month the centre of Kalamunda is filled with stalls and buyers for the monthly Kalamunda markets.
The markets are set in a shaded side street, and focus on promoting local retailers and businesses.
While they are open from 8:30 until 3:00, the prime time is before 12:00 when the best items are still in stock and Vendors aren't looking to pack up.
The stalls feature a diverse range of handmade jewellery to suit every taste and budget, quality handmade home furnishings, plants & ornaments for the garden, and many more unique stalls. Regulars to look out for include the map stall- featuring high quality stationary and hardcover notebooks bound with maps; and a stall featuring beautiful ceramic pendants. Also check out for Daniel Inc. selling his creative designs.
While the market's focus is more on fresh produce than food available to eat, there are many cafes at hand which offer a delicious range of foods.
As well as the stalls, the surrounding shops will have their doors open, and many have great market-day specials.
The markets are on the first Saturday of every month, year round. It's a great morning to bring the whole family to, and support local businesses. There is no Entry Fee, so it doesn't cost anything for you to come and have a browse.
There's plenty of parking spaces surrounding the markets, but if you want a convenient park on Hayne's street you'll have to get in quick!
