All busi­ness in Su­bi­aco will suf­fer be­cause those mar­kets are our only point of dif­fer­ence. While we were a tourist precinct we were lucky, we had the Su­bi­aco Pav­il­ion Mar­kets as well but now with ex­tended trad­ing peo­ple can just go to the Floreat Forum.


I am very sad that the mar­kets will go be­cause my wife and I like them very much. The fruit and veg­eta­bles are cheaper than the su­per­mar­ket and you can buy things that are not (found) any­where else in Perth.


I don’t think it’s a good idea to re­de­velop the mar­kets. I go there ev­ery few weeks so I have signed the pe­ti­tion for it to stay.


There are enough con­crete jun­gles around here, so I think the mar­kets should stay. You have a Wool­worths right next-door, build­ing a Coles would be overkill. Why can’t we leave a bit of her­itage and charm here?


I think it’s a real shame. I walk to the mar­kets from my house on most week­ends – it has a re­ally nice vibe. There is nowhere else in Su­bi­aco like it.

We will be los­ing a very big cul­tural side of Su­bi­aco. I don’t think peo­ple will travel to Su­bi­aco for a Coles and Tar­get they can eas­ily find at Kar­rinyup or In­naloo. To go there on a Sun­day morn­ing and get a break­fast from any­where in the world is a beau­ti­ful thing.
