Before you head to the Lake Joondalup market, it is worth looking at the event calendar which the Ladybird Market puts out beforehand. Throughout the day, the Ladybird Market will be asking some of the vendors operating there to carry out product demonstrations.  It is worth heading there for these demonstrations as it is fantastic to see some of the products in action!

In addition to this, they may be running small craft workshops that you can take part in. For example, in recent years, the pop up market has run workshops which teach you how to arrange flowers into a crown.

When to get there

It is important that you head to the Lake Joondalup pop up market as early as you possibly can. This is a place which can get very crowded at a moment’s notice. Since the products that are on display tend to be ‘one of a kind’, if you do not get there early, you may lose out on a fantastic deal.

While there are only 30 companies (roughly), displaying their products at the market, you are encouraged to plan to be here for at least 2-3 hours. There is going to be a lot to see. It can also be difficult to get around the place quickly once it starts to fill up a bit.
