Over the years we’ve had hundreds of stalls. Some come for just one occasion, some are always there in summer or always in winter. Some are there every month without fail.
Stall holders have a busy life going to lots of different markets all around Perth,
Here are a few of the stalls which we’ve been lucky enough to host over the years and they give you a good idea of the kind of stalls that you can expect to find at your next visit!
Some artists find engaging directly with the public terrifying! Not so for Denise and Hugh, Poms who have called Australia home for about 10 years.
Denise with her diverse artistic talents gets particularly excited when it comes to “3D design” Hugh with a background in engineering and been fascinated from an early age in the art of the manufactured object has experimented in ceramics and dabbled in the science of clays and glazes. Finally last year, in 2015 the opportunity arose to work in ceramics full-time, resulting in the formation of the creative collaboration Vibe Ceramic Studios,
With an ancestry of craft, master carpenters, stone masons Denise’s work has appeared in numerous solo and group exhibitions within WA and interstate. Concentrating initially on tableware and adhering to a philosophy best described as “art that works”, Vibe Ceramic Studios use hand-mixed slips and their own original glaze formulations to create contemporary pieces which are both practical to use and beautiful to display.
Sharon Madden form Zeez Beez has been in the business of keeping bees and selling a range of bee related products since 2013.
Sharon originally started with one hive but as her fascination of bees grew, so did number of hives she acquired. She has had experience working with a bee breeder so is very interested in the genetics and breeding of her stock for her hives.
Sharon loves her job and is passionate about helping the survival rates of bees and keeping the bee population healthy. Under the Zeez Beez label she sells a range of honey, honeycomb and bees wax products. Sharon also sells bee hives and related bee keeping products. She is very proud of the Zeez Beez products because she knows the quality is there.

Julie Green was inspired to start Funky Fungi in 2005 and the business has just ‘mushroomed’ ever since. (Sorry!)
But in the February 2011 Kelmscott bush fire Julie lost here work shed. They had a very close shave! But that didn’t stop her and she’s started re-creating from newly built premises on their property. A regular at many of Perth’s markets almost every weekend, Julie says she ‘loves the enjoyable family atmosphere’ and the Old Perth Road Markets are her favorite! Funky Fungi are sold individually or you can brighten up your winter garden with a mix and match set of five for just $35 !
Fiona Carson of Baba-dee Productionswas one of our inaugural stallholders in August 2010 and attended many markets since then. Her beautiful jewelry range includes necklaces, bracelets, earrings, brooches and rings all featuring the stunning kanzashi flower design. Each piece is personally handmade by Fiona and crafted by folding small squares of silk into petals and then sewing and gluing them together teamed with vintage glass buttons. The bright and colourful designs make a gorgeous accessory to match any outfit or occasion.
