Farming fiesta

KYILLA Community Farmers Market has its fifth birthday this Saturday (June 9) and organisers are putting on a big shindig for the occasion.

The markets were started by Kyilla Primary School parents as a way of fundraising for much-needed resources at the school, as well as bringing locals together to sell them some farm-direct and locally-made produce.

Co-founder Carli Keane says; “it’s so fantastic five years on to see the Kyilla neighbourhood connecting with the broader community and making the choice to support the farmers and producers directly.”

Vincent mayor Emma Cole calls the markets “a local success story”.

“It is an amazing achievement to reach this five-year milestone and I congratulate the organisers and volunteers from Kyilla Primary School, their P&C and the Market Committee,” Ms Cole said.

They have worked so hard to make this market a weekend favourite in North Perth.”

There’ll be a silent disco, tug of war, buskers, food trucks and a bunch of free stuff for the kids. It’s on at Kyilla Park on Clieveden Street (just opposite the school), and runs 8am to 2pm.
