Swan Settlers Markets, Herne Hill

Swan Settlers Markets, Herne Hill

Back in the 1990’s we loved visiting the eclectic Midland Military Markets. Sadly that was burned down in 2007, and ever since then, the people behind it have been searching for a new place to hold indoor markets in Perth’s East. Now there’s a brand new indoor market in the Swan Valley! The Swan Settlers Markets is found in the historic Swan Settlers Co-op. The jarrah and corrugated iron building has been around for nearly a century. This spot used to process currants and sultanas grown on surrounding farms until just over 10 years ago.

The new markets manager used to manage the old Midland Military Markets. Now, the Swan Settlers Co-op has had an impressive $2.5 million restoration, with over 40 stalls that offer a range of locally made products from local food and wines to art and lots of vintage and retro finds.

There’s lots of crafts and hand made items.

For grandkids there is a shaded sandpit, with lots of toys to dig with. There are tables surrounding this outdoor area, making a nice place to eat.

Some of the original farming equipment has been preserved and is on show. As is some machinery, which has been tuned into a unique interactive coin donation device that grandkids will be fascinated by.

Be sure to drop by and support the small local artisans at the Swan Settlers Markets. It’s also a wonderful place to take overseas and interstate visitors to give them a taste of the Swan Valley and to by some Australian made keepsakes.
