The Rockingham Rotary Market is operated by the Rotary Club of Rockingham Inc. It has been our regions “go to” markets on a Sunday morning since before 1995!
During spring/summer it is not unusual to have an attendance of around 3000 potential buyers.
We have over 100 bays that sell a huge range of items and the stallholders will be vying for your attention.
Around 65% of those are permanent stall holders selling clothes, books, shoes, DVDs, dog items, cakes, plants, jewellery, signs, candles, fruit and vegetables, tools and more…... so much more.
We also allocate space for casual stall holders that come to sell their bric-a-brac, much like you’d find at a garage sale, only we have around 45 garage sales in one place, so you’ll certainly find a bargain or 10.
The markets are held every Sunday weather permitting, from 7am to 12noon, entrance is by gold coin donation and dogs are welcome as long as they stay on a lead at all times.
100% of all the money raised from the markets goes back to our community and our projects via grants and donations which are administered by a community committee. To date we would have donated many hundreds of thousands of dollars to worthy recipients.
The event is entirely organised and operated by our Rotary Members who are all volunteers, no one is paid for operating our markets, that’s what real community spirit is all about.
We have ice cream trucks, coffee vans and buskers and, of course, the market obligatory, an awesome sausage sizzle marquee which is operated by a different group each month. That is another way we give back, these groups can make thousands in fund raising.
You’ll find us located in the Kent Street Car Park behind the Rockingham Dome and Gary Holland Centre, 19 Kent Street, Rockingham.
