Applecross: stallholders ready for latest Perth Makers Market

An array of handmade items will be on offer when the next Perth Makers Market takes place at Heathcote Cultural Precinct in Applecross on Sunday, February 24.

The markets are run six times per year and feature about 160 stallholders selling everything from food to clothes.

Little Farm Provedore owner and White Gum Valley resident Helen Smith said she had been involved with the markets for about 12 months because it allowed people to connect with producers.

“People appreciate good food and they want to know where their food is coming from,” she said.

“I’ll be selling jams, pickles, preserves and mustard sourced from local ingredients.”

Ardross resident Catherine Wright, owner of Tiny Tots Accessories by Catherine, will showcase her handmade bibs for the first time at the markets.

“I’m excited, I’ve never done anything like this before,” she said.

“I started making bibs last year after my daughter Alyssa gave birth.

“I’ve been to the markets before as a customer and I thought, this is where I want to be.”
