Growing up in Perth, one of my favourite memories was going to local markets with my family. With most of the traditional markets now boarded up and closed down, a new generation of Perth kids will learn to love pop-ups and mobile markets that spring up across Perth during the year.
Following its enormous success in late 2015, MiLi Events will be holding the next Burswood Family Market on Friday March 18th from 6-9pm.
Held at the State Tennis Centre in Burswood, this family friendly and relaxed market will cater for all members of the family. With a huge 16 food trucks and vendors, you will find tasty dishes for every appetite including satay, pizza, icecream, curry and the inventiveness that is the Asian fusion hot dogs of Wonder Dawg and Co.
This event will have even more entertainment for the kids including free face painting, balloon twisting and even temporary tattoos.
Take a seat under the big top and enjoy listening to some great local buskers providing a variety of musical entertainment and then head into the market to find some of Perth's best and most diverse shopping.
You will find a range of beautiful toys for children, jewellery and fashion for adults, scrummy foods to eat, delicious candles and one-off home wares and decorator items, such as one of a kind terrariums from Stellar Cryptic Creations and gifts for the furry members of your family from Winston and Ruby.
The tennis centre has parking attendants who will help everyone find a spot.
