Try some of these great markets for Christmas shopping
This is a list of Perth markets that are not so well known, however, are worth going to!
1. THE LOCAL FARMERS MARKET - EDEN BEACH These are fruit and vegetable markets where you will get the freshest and tastiest fruit and veggies that are available. Fruits are allowed to ripen fully in the field and are brought directly to you, so there is no long-distance haulage, no gassing to simulate the ripening process, no sitting for weeks in storage.
These markets are now open at 2 great locations every weekend!
These markets provide local communities with good quality fresh, local and homemade produce, direct from the farm to you. You will be able to get to talk to the people that grow what you eat, get tips and advice and be assured that it was all picked and packed just a day ago!
The following are available at these markets - Art & Craft, Antique & Collectables, Baby & Kids/Children, Bric-a-Brac, General, Variety, Farmers Produce, Organic, Fashion, Handmade, Music, Food, Community, Outdoor market, and Plants (wheelchair friendly)
There are two locations: Honeywood Land Sales Office Carpark, Littabella Street, Wandi every Sunday from 8 am to 12 noon
