The Perth Farmers Market was created in June 1992 in light of a joyful resurgence of community spirit, and an interest in naturally grown local food production. Located at the Crystal Palace alongside the scenic Tay Basin, local growers as well as crafts vendors offer their products every Saturday from 8a.m to 1p.m from Mothers Day weekend to Thanksgiving weekend. Special events such as cooking demo's, cooking contests, music, and more often take place as well. In July and August a smaller market runs Wednesday's from 2-6pm in the same location. The Perth Farmers Market also hosts a seed swap and sale every spring.
