High in the hills, 30 kilometres south east of Perth, Roleystone Community Market beckons with a beautiful location. Grab the family, escape the city, empty the boot and see for yourself.
Turning onto the Brookton Highway, off Albany Highway Kelmscott, takes you through rolling hills to the Roleystone Spring Markets situated in the grounds of the old Roleystone Primary School Site-Robin Road Green. The corner of Jarrah Road and Robin Road opposite the Roleystone Seniors Club and the Fire Station will put you in the thick of the action.
A stroll amongst the stalls, drink in hand, no better way to spend a Spring day
The non-for profit Roleystone Markets offer a distinctive mix of quality art, craft, provisions and produce. Check out their Facebook page for the latest information. This is their first year and the third markets, following the successful events in March and June.
The Roleystone Spring Markets will feature a Car Boot Sale. After a bit of browse and a little food and drink, have a look for car boot hidden treasures. Come with an empty boot and you should fit your newfound booty in. Off course, if a 44-gallon drum (BBQ?) is your desire then you might need to bring the Leyland P76.
Food, food, glorious food
No market would be complete without a variety of fresh food and produce. Among the offerings on the day will be tasty churros, wood fired pizza, yummy Cajun food, donoughts, hamburgers, hot chips, ice cream, soft drinks and of course, coffee.

Please dad, can we just go to the Roleystone Markets
Loads of fun and uses up the energy children seem to possess in abundance. Shoes off, and maybe having that treat AFTER bouncing might be wise.
Plenty to keep the kids and adults occupied

A huge range of stalls, yummy food, live entertainment and lots, lots more will ensure a great day out. If the Winter Markets are anything to go by you will find plenty to see and do while giving your taste buds a good workout.
