Tips of visiting Art Upmarket
- Come early or late, Upmarket can get very busy!
- 80% of the market is undercover, so if it’s raining don’t let that put you off. Parking is all on-site, so bring an umbrella and you’ll be fine.
- Plan your day – check out our online retailer gallery and make a list of stalls you have to visit!
- The Perth Upmarket info desk can be found outside the entry and it’s a good first stop as you can pick up a list of all retailers and enter their competition
- The grounds of UWA are beautiful so wander around the gardens and hopefully the sun is shining so you can eat out on the lawn.
- UWA’s Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery just behind Winthrop Hall is open on market day!
