Canning Vale Market, Perth WA

Standard

Canning Vale Market is a Sunday market in Perth, Western Australia.

As the sun rises, stall vendors drive into the large open space and set up pop-up stalls displaying a huge range of items from second hand goods, plants, homemade jams, fresh produce and more. You have to wake up early to catch all the action, because the market opens at 7am, and wrap up at 1pm.

The market is easily accessible by public transportation. Armed with an iPhone, I followed google map’s directions: I took a train, followed by a bus – constantly alert lest I miss my stop – and walked approximately 5 minutes to the destination; plus an additional couple of minutes spent asking for directions.

Those with a penchant for vintage products, Canning Vale will bring you glad tidings with second-hand stalls aplenty: you can find used clothing, electrical products, books and toys to name a few. The market is clean and huge, and saying it’s huge is an understatement. Spend the entire morning cutting through the clutter and you may find something you fancy.

I never fail to include local markets in my itinerary whenever I travel; the markets exhibit the true culture of the country, which I am deeply mesmerized by.
