Stallholder Information

MarketLife events are a platform where diversity, creativity, and local talent can take centre stage. As the hub for event organisation across Western Australia, we cater to a range of events designed to champion local enterprises. Whether you're a seasoned vendor or an up-and-coming artisan, we provide opportunities to spotlight your unique offerings at a plethora of engaging events.

The heart of our mission is to showcase high-quality, local goods at events we organise on behalf of various clients (or ourseleves!). We're engaged by councils, non-profit organisations and businesses to help them craft events, and we tailor each event to have its own unique atmosphere and target audience. Our focus on authenticity and craftsmanship welcomes not only handmade goods but also a wide spectrum of products. We invite a diverse mix of vendors to participate, from food artisans to lifestyle product creators, ensuring a dynamic, engaging mix of stalls at every event.

If you're new to the market scene, fear not! We are passionate about supporting emerging artists, students, and novice entrepreneurs. MarketLife offers mentorship and guidance to help you navigate your journey, solidify your brand presence, and maximise your exposure.

Interwoven with the local community, MarketLife events serve more than commerce; they cultivate community spirit. We uphold high standards of professionalism and positivity and anticipate our stallholders to contribute to the welcoming, inclusive atmosphere that defines our events.

Our broad portfolio of locations offers the chance to connect with diverse audiences. From the heart of Perth to picturesque settings like the University of Western Australia, every MarketLife-organised event provides an opportunity for growth and connection.

Before embarking on your MarketLife journey, we recommend reviewing the unique Terms and Conditions for each event you apply to.
