Here at Perth Makers Market we are always on the lookout for new, talented Western Australian makers to come and showcase what they can do at our market.
We are strictly a locally handmade only market. If you do not make your products yourself, please do not apply to our events as we hate to disappoint when you do not meet our criteria. If you are unsure if what you do qualifies as handmade, you can always get in touch to ask via our Contact Us section.
New to the world of handmade? Not a problem! Here at Perth Makers Market we are more than happy to help you on your handmade journey and even offer discounts to new and emerging artists* as well as students and spaces for not-for-profit organisations. We support our makers by helping them gain exposure and furthering their opportunities to develop their brand.
Perth Makers Market is connected with the local community. We take pride in the location of our market and our connections with this community and as such, we ask that all market representatives (makers included) maintain a professional, positive and approachable image and a sense of community at all times during the market.
Please take the time to read our Terms and Conditions for Stallholders before applying, and if you have any queries please do not hesitate to get in touch.
* Conditions apply. Please contact market management for further information.

When applying using our online stallholder portal (https://portal.perthmakersmarket.com/) make sure you select the 50% student discount. In order for us to apply it to you we need to see proof of enrolment for you. You can either add this as part of your application as an image, or e-mail a copy of your proof of enrolment to firstname.lastname@example.org
We do not offer powered stalls due to poor availability/access to power on site at Heathcote. If you require power in order to attend please include this information as part of your application. We have a limited availability to offer power in certain locations and do not wish to run into issues on market day with accepting stallholders who require power that we are then not able to accommodate. Please be aware that if you need power provided by Perth Makers Market in order to run your stall you are less likely to be accepted to our events due to this issue.
Under no circumstances can items be pegged/stuck into the grass at Heathcote. This is a very strict requirement by City of Melville and is part of our conditions in making use of the site. Your gazebo must be weighted with appropriate weights (proper weights that are strapped to your gazebo), items such as bricks placed on the base of your gazebo are not acceptable. This is a safety issue and should market staff find you non-compliant on market day you will be asked to take down your stall and leave our event. If you need advice on where to purchase appropriate gazebo weights please contact us.
Perth Makers Market is a strictly locally handmade only market. This means we only accept business who make their own products locally in Western Australia. Unfortunately if you have your products manufactured elsewhere we cannot accept you as a stallholder, regardless of where the products are designed.
In certain product categories such as photography and artwork we will accept stallholders who have their images and artwork printed on to other mediums (within reason) and have multiple copies of their work for sale (art prints etc.) as we recognise that this still counts as handmade as you are the one who has taken the image/produced the artwork.
Unfortunately we do not pair businesses together for a shared stall due to previous poor experiences. If you would like to apply for a shared stall you need to be able to nominate someone to share with, and they also need to apply and nominate to share with you.
Nope! We count pre-made food items as a standard stall type as we acknowledge it is a different type of business with a different price point to those making and serving food on market day. Just apply for a stall and select your category as “food, pre-made”
