The Perth Markets

The Perth Markets

On the weekend, we went to visit The Perth Markets at the Perth Cultural Centre, in the shade of the old trees between the Museum and the Art Gallery in Northbridge.

It was the first weekend of The Perth Markets  as the new, regular weekend markets in the city, and it was very exciting to walk around and see the beginnings of a new local tradition.

There were all kinds of market stalls – fresh produce, organic products, herbs and spices, flowers, art work, jewellery, accessories, bits and pieces. There was also excellent street music, balloons and face painting. Perth’s inner-city multi-culturalism was really on display as well!

I think the best bit was that all their profits go to a charitable cause – helping Youth In Crisis.
