A nasty side affect of Covid-19 was undoubtedly the erosion of face-to-face connection. As a city, we were disassociated from each other. When required to stay inside our own homes we lost that feeling of belonging, the sense of community.
Now that we are emerging from the pandemic fog, we are again able to enjoy all that Perth has to offer. This is the perfect opportunity to again “find your tribe” and connect with likeminded individuals. To reignite past connections and to forge new ones. And the market scene is the perfect space to do this – both as a stallholder and as a visitor.

Our Community of Makers
The handmade community is a special one. A group of artisans who are passionate about unique hand made products. Joining the Perth Makers Market family (and yes, we are all like a family!) connects you to a community of makers who celebrate each other’s wins, support one another, and provide a positive inclusive environment.

Our market days are always full of smiling faces and joyful experiences. There really is no comparison to coming together at a market to sell your wares amongst other talented makers. An online shop just doesn’t measure up!

Connecting with Customers
Our stall holders also benefit from the face-to-face connection with their customers. Being able to interact with people who use and love their products fill our makers with a sense of pride and achievement. Perth Makers Market provides our makers with the opportunity to chat to their customers in real time, in real life, while they touch, taste, and smell their products.

A market experience allows makers to build their brand equity. Stall holders can build an authentic connection with their target audience in a way that is not possible online. There is nothing like a real in-person connection. It’s what society craves.

Market Visitors Benefit Too
Perth Makers Market provides a space to come together – as a family, for a day out with friends, or even solo. Everyone is welcomed and included. Solo visitors can immerse themselves in the market experience amongst like-minded individuals.

Families enjoy the many activities designed to build connection and bring members together. Parents and children can bond while painting a parasol at the Arty Brellas stand, or while enjoying a meal together in the beautiful surrounds. Friends come together for a fabulous day out, while also supporting their local small business community. It really is a win-win!
