Roleystone Markets always take the best interest of their stall holders and visitors to heart. Thus, sadly, the Winter Market is CANCELLED due to inclement weather (no one likes wet feet up to their ankles and a soggy oval). Please check their Facebook page for further details.
A market for all seasons
Come and wave goodbye to the last spectacular fall of autumn leaves in Roleystone, as we transition to the crisp winter scenery of our native trees.
Just 30 minutes' drive from the Perth CBD takes you to another world where nature presents you with a much broader palette, encompassing all the stunning shades of a genuine autumn and the lushness of the Australian native trees, as we enter winter.
The Roleystone Winter Market, held in the centre of this small but beautifully formed village, has over the last 8 years gained a well-deserved reputation for delivering an amazing market focusing on quality and variety of stalls.
Come and enjoy the vista, Sunday, June 9, 2019 from 10:00am to 3:00pm. You will discover over 100 hand-picked stalls, carefully selected by the Market Committee to ensure a high-quality product and variety. This feat is achieved by following an underlying philosophy to limit stalls selling the same primary product to just 3, a significant point of difference that is appreciated by both stallholders and visitors alike.
How to get to Roleystone Markets
Turn onto the Brookton Highway, off Albany Highway Kelmscott, and you pass through one of the most scenic valleys in the Perth Hills to the Roleystone Markets, situated in Cross Park. Turn off at Holden road and follow the signs to the market location situated along Jarrah Road between Wygonda and Heather Road, just 30 kilometres south-east of Perth. Please check the Important Parking Information at the end of this article and enjoy your day.
Roleystone Markets take advantage of their excellent position at Cross Park, situated on a huge oval, with space for the kids to play ball, or run themselves ragged. Surrounded by Shady trees, the large grassed area provides a spacious and protective bushland setting to enjoy the day.
With the focus on locally sourced (with most locally made) products, often with the artist on hand, and a handmade/no imports philosophy, Roleystone Markets attract many unique vendors. New vendors, complimenting loved regulars are ready to tempt you with unique options.
Come and meet Jake, a young local entrepreneur who not only designs his own sporting apparel, but runs his own business called JAP_TIVE Australia. This is Jake's second visit and he has something for everyone.
Second time at the Market, Reyuze, has 95% recycled materials utilised to fashion useful one of a kind eye catching products. Each item is handmade and unique in its colouring.
It is all about the kids

Jaylyn Jean, who has been featured on Triple J Unearthed, will be sharing her beautiful voice with you. She describes her sound as jazzy at times mixed with a range of genres and good for a Sunday session, played to a relaxed crowd.
The incredibly talented Zola Lee will be performing again, weaving her magic whether it be on the guitar, violin, tap dance violin or Vocal.
Having a great variety of top food vendors has become a key feature of any market and Roleystone Markets is no different. Likewise, as with the general stalls the food vendors are also hand-picked by the Market Committee with the emphasis on offering a variety of food adventures alongside the old favourites of freshly made pizza and pancakes.
A variety of food outlets surround the market, with something for all tastes.
Check out the Roleystone Men's Community Shed, see their latest inventions and have a chat. New members are always welcome. Roleystone Community Garden is in full swing and only a short walk from the oval. Therefore, take your gardening questions or just enjoy seeing how the garden is growing and have a cuppa with the gardeners.
A variety of Not for Profit groups providing activities ensure Roleystone Winter Market 2019 is a great family day out.
All of this adds up to a great family day out, things to do, things to eat, amazing retail therapy and entertainment from a variety of buskers situated around the market, all proudly sponsored by the local Roleystone Karragullen Community Bank.
If you have a unique product, talent, food, or service, and would like your wares displayed in a market that appreciates your difference, then email their stall coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Important parking information
To ensure a hassle-free day and easy parking for everyone there will be a road closure around the Market to facilitate additional car parking and hopefully take the pressure of the local streets. Traffic management will be in place with plenty of signage around the area, but half of Jarrah Road from the Wygonda/Jarrah roundabout up to the Senior Citizen Centre will be closed off to parking.
