Do you want more variety in your market experience? Roleystone Markets aim to have no more than three stalls offering the same principal product. Variety, combined with an emphasis on local arts and craft ensure Roleystone Winter Market is the place 'to see and be seen'.
Handpicked to ensure a great range of excellent quality home grown and home made products, the stallholders at Roleystone Markets have something for all tastes. The wide variety of products and produce enjoyed in previous markets will be even better.
What better time than winter, to visit the little village of Roleystone located high in the Hills, 30 kilometres south east of Perth. After a successful 2013 and superb start (in their new location) to 2014, Roleystone Winter Market continues to excel with a great mix of food, crafts and entertainment.
Turning onto the Brookton Highway, off Albany Highway Kelmscott, takes you through rolling hills to the Roleystone Markets, situated in lovely Cross Park. Turn off at Holden road and follow the signs to the new location situated along Jarrah Road between Wygonda and Heather Road.
I could not find a spot to stop and take a photo of the most beautiful sections, despite the good road. Therefore, you will just have to experience it yourself.
