Market stalls line the Perth Cultural Centre in a celebration of the artistic and organic nature of Perth’s youth-run local businesses.

Please note: Market stallholders will not have Credit Card / EFTPOS facilities so it is advised that you either bring cash or visit one of the several ATMs in the event vicinity to make sure you don’t miss out on your favourite items. Not sure where the ATMs are located? Ask one of our friendly volunteers!
