WANT TO COME AND ENTERTAIN US ?
Leederville Farmers Markets wants to support budding musicians and performing artists so we invite interested extroverts to drop us a line and tell us a little about what your discipline is and we will try and schedule some time slots for you on the market floor. You can come and do your thing for free - all you need is your instrument or juggling balls and a hat to put the donations in.

I LOVE TO DANCE !
Good music and good entertainment is a key part of our market philosophy. We think the market should be a colourful and festive occasion - a place of relaxation and enjoyment.
We intend getting behind our budding artists so that they can share their love of music, dance and entertainment with you. Everything is a two way street with us so any opportunity we have to help others in reaching their dreams and goals, we are there for them. Please give them your support too !
Any community groups or performers are invited to contact us and we can discuss your idea.
pooch and polish
We are currently clarifying the requirements to conduct a dog washing service at the market for you with the City of Vincent. If you want to bring your beloved mutt down to the market you will be able to have all your dirty work done for you.
Our doggy adoring "Twisted Sisters" will apply their gentle magic to your best friend. The sisters tell us it will be about a 10-15 minute wait to have the dogs washed and ready for you. Either wait for the newly found cleanliness and sit and have a break and a cup of tea or pop off to get the items that you forgot to buy at the market.
Our prediction is that they are going to have very busy Sunday mornings. Only the washing service will be available on market day but the ladies will be able to take bookings for cutting and grooming outside of market hours.
Keep your eye out for the Twisted Sisters as we will need to position their spot in the market at a discrete distance from all that delicious food. Ask at the managers marquee at the Newcastle Street entrance for directions if you're not sure.
*PLEASE REMEMBER THAT DOGS ARE NOT PERMITTED * INTO THE MARKET AREA UNLESS ON A LEAD
VIN IS PRETTY SHARP !
Look out for 'Pretty Sharp' and Vin Cronin, master knife sharpener at the market. Vin was a butcher in a past life but he made a change and has been sharpening knifes for the big names in the Perth hospitality scene for over 20 years now. He's agrees with us that a Sunday morning at the market might do him good as he loves to meet people and have a good chat. But more than anything else he loves to put a great edge on your knives and scissors.
No need for blunt instruments in the kitchen any more - just bring them down with you when you come to do your shopping and Vin will put the sharpest edge possible on them . Knives that have been sharpened properly retain their edge for a lot longer.
I am sure he may also give you some hints on how to maintain and get the best use out of them as well ...
