The Market with More
No Powerball here - Stallholders are handpicked
No Powerball here - Stallholders are handpicked

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.

The Drive is Part of the Experience


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.


The non-for profit Roleystone Markets offer a distinctive mix of quality handcrafted, handmade goods and produce with over 70 stalls. Check out their Facebook page for the latest information.

The Shedders

Blokes Helping Blokes
Your turn to hold, my turn to measure

The Roleystone Men's Community Shed will have some great products demonstrating the fruits of their activities, with ideas for gifts or for your own home.

This is the first market they have been able to sell their own work. With some great ideas and impressive quality, their stall will amaze and delight.

If you are a 'bloke', why not enquire about becoming a part of 'blokes helping blokes'. They are always looking for new members and welcome men of all ages (over 16 at present).

The Gardeners

Roleystone Community Garden Produce

The Roleystone Community Garden has amassed a group of local experts who are giving their time to answer garden questions and problems.

This is a rare opportunity for all those with green fingers to improve their skills and those with brown ones to find out what killed their favourite plant.

Ride a Pony or Pat a Critter

Waiting patiently for the next budding equestrian

The popular pony rides are back, always a great favourite with budding equestrians. For those who prefer to pat or watch, The Animal Farm with its myriad of furry and feathered friends will keep the children (and adults) occupied.

Roleystone Musicians Club

The Roleystone Musicians Club returns after their great performance at the last Market to entertain in the newly developed busking area. The improved sound system
should ensure that everyone enjoys the great spirit and ambience of the Roleystone Winter Market.
