Swan Settlers Markets

Did you know that a brand new indoor market has opened in the Swan Valley? The Swan Settlers Markets is housed in the historic Swan Settlers Co-op, build in 1923, to process currants and sultanas grown on surrounding farms. This huge building was in operation right up until 2007.

2007 was also the year the old Midland Military Markets burnt down, and the new markets have the same manager. Now, the building has had an impressive $2.5 million upgrade, with lots of rustic jarrah and corrugated iron giving it an unmistakable Swan Valley vibe.

Where a lot of markets around Perth are overtaken by $2 shops and overseas products, the stalls at the Swan Settlers Markets are run by artisans that make their own goods. There’s a lot to discover at the markets. Over 40 stalls offer a range of locally made products from local wines to art, crafts and handmade goods.
