History Of The Market Place

Framed by a rumbling railway, rolling hills and lush vineyards, the Swan Settlers Market has a rich historical tapestry woven into its 100-year-old walls.

The building was constructed on the rich growing soils of the Swan Valley in 1919, to utilise the convenience of the East-West railway line. The fruit packing shed was the lifeblood of the region, showcasing the sun-kissed produce of the Valley through all seasons and became one of the largest fruit exporters in WA.

It began with soldier resettlement after World War I. Originally a large landholding, it was divided into ten acre-blocks to encourage the soldiers to come back and re-establish themselves in the region. They were given plots of land to grow grapes and apricots that were packed inside this massive shed. Unfortunately, the soldiers were not amazing growers and the land was eventually taken over by new settlers.

In the late 1920s, a large number of Yugoslavian men wandered over from the Goldfields, and eventually took over Swan Settlers Co-Operative. They were the largest populations of Yogoslavians outside of Europe. It was because of this that the Yugoslavian King Peter II, visited the humble Valley and Co-Op circa in the late 1930s. After 80 years of operation, Swan Settlers Co-op had to close its doors.

 

Now, new life has sprung and the corridors are once again pumping with people and purpose.

 

The Swan Valley is steeped in history and amazing talent. The Market resurrects the dying arts, local produce and community spirit. It’s a fantastic weekend market with expert advice, quality produce, fun experiences and a peek into the world of true artisans and creators.
