The Stirling Square Market is held on the 3rd Sunday of every month from 9am to 3pm in Stirling Square, Guildford.

Guildford was one of the first three towns founded in Western Australia when the Swan River colony was established in 1829. Perth was to be the administration centre, Fremantle would be the port and Guildford was going to be the place where everyone would go to do their shopping.

Stirling Square is a large, beautiful park that is a popular venue for weddings and picnics. It is surrounded by historical buildings, museums, antique shops and art galleries.

St Matthew’s Church, which was built in 1873, sits in the middle of the square. There is also a War Memorial, a playground, and a gazebo. A self-guided walking tour goes through the park as of the Guildford Heritage Trail.

The Stirling Square Market offers free live entertainment, live dance, free children’s activities, playground access, guest attractions, monthly workshops and a huge selection of handcrafted wares, locally produced items, vintage and retro collectibles, and sweet and savoury treats to choose from.

When you walk through the market you’ll see things like hand-made pottery, children’s clothes, knitted hats, scented candles, colourful wooden toys, potted plants and bags of lollies. There is something to interest everyone.

When you’re done with your shopping maybe grab a coffee, have a hamburger, and then sit on the lawn and watch the live music being performed in the gazebo. Kids will love the bouncy castle and playground and grass to run around on.

If you’re looking for a fun way to spend an afternoon then the Stirling Square Market might be the thing you’re looking for. It’s free to enter and once you’ve had your unique shopping experience you might like to stop and have a picnic, or explore the rest of Guildford and see what it has to offer.

The Swan Valley Visitor Centre is across the road from the square, and you can view Guildford’s old court house and learn about the region’s past. Or you could take a short stroll and visit Guildford’s “antique strip” on James Street. There is a lot to see and do in Guildford.
