About the wholesale markets
Perth Markets (the Markets) is Western Australia’s only wholesale fruit and vegetable market. The Markets contribute significantly to the horticultural industry as well as Western Australia’s economy, with more than 194,000 tonnes of produce traded through the Market annually.
Operating from a purpose-built Site on 51 hectares at Canning Vale, Perth Markets provides the critical link between growers, wholesalers, retailers and the fresh produce supply chain.
More than 13,000 individuals access the Market Site each week. The bulk of produce is traded through the Central Trading Area (CTA), which consists of 25 market wholesalers.
Wholesalers offer an extensive range of product variety, quality and price and have access to a large customer base with more than 760 registered buyers.
Market operations are complex. More than 100 businesses within the Site receive, store, trade and distribute highly perishable fresh fruit and vegetables in the most efficient manner available to meet the ever-increasing demand.
