One of the weekend activities I really enjoy is to go to local fruit and veg markets and stock up for the following week. I can spend hours and hours on end buying fresh food, discover new spices and enjoying meals in the food court. Subiaco Markets (close to the railway station) is a great place to get fresh produce. It’s one of Perth’s largest undercover markets and has a wide variety of foods and other goods & services to offer.
If you want to avoid lots of people, you’ll have to be there byt 7:00am. It already starts to get busy around 7:30am! There are several fruit and vegetable shops in the market, but it also has juice stands, flower shops, fresh food outlets such as fish, butcher, bakeries, patisserie, whole foods, health foods and also a café & food court area. You can also find a large range of jewellery clothing and gift shops, plus beauty services including hairstylists and massage therapies.
Perth has a lot of markets spread around the city. Another great market is the old Fremantle markets, which has a lot of history. There are also several farmer markets that are held at local schools over the weekends. Mt Claremont Farmers market and Subiaco Farmers market are worth checking out! ★
