The Glades Arts & Produce Market
The Glades Arts & Produce Markets are held on the third Saturday of the month from September to April. Generally 80+ stalls with a huge variety of fresh and local produce, locally produced arts and crafts. Additionally, we have entertainment during the day, kids activities and more.
Visit the Arts and Produce market page to book your stall now.
These markets have gained a reputation for their quality throughout the region. If you are a potential stallholder with unique handcrafted products, fresh grown produce or a musician/entertainer who would like to perform at our market days, we are interested in talking to you.

Here are just some of the comments from recent visitors to the market:
We commend the developers for their foresight and continued support and the assistance from the Byford Volunteer Fire Brigade particularly for erecting the marquees.
The location of the market and surroundings are ideal with well-tended lawns and gardens, adequate parking and easy access for stallholders and market patrons alike.
Just wanted to say a big thank you for having us at your market we had a great night and look forward to next month’s market. - Jess, Dreamy Delights
Saturday night was great thanks! The reticulation just provided that little more entertainment. Can we please book in for the Feb and March ones as well? Thanks so much, you're doing a great job! (I'm inspired to take up belly dancing now!) - Kali
As stall holders at Byford Glades Market, we enjoy not only the excitement and camaraderie with other stallholders at the Market, but the challenge of preparing our “countryoz” homemade jams, chutneys and relishes, with produce grown in our home garden using organically based methods.
We hope this monthly event continues to be an attraction for the people of Byford, surrounding areas and further afield. We thank the Market Coordinator, Mandi Parker and her assistants, for their input and innovative ideas for each market.

Just wanted to tell you how much Mary & I enjoyed the Market last night. There was a good turn out with great entertainment & yummy food! We were wondering how far into the year it goes, through winter etc? Thanks.- Lynda
The Glades Community
At LWP we don't develop land – we build communities. We create better places to live, work and play. We do this by starting with a vision for a community. We identify the needs and wants of the people who will one day live in that community – young and the old, married and single, children and families.
We assess what needs are already met locally and which ones we will need to address. From there we begin to create our Community Development Plan. At the heart of all our Community Development Plans are a number of principles.
A joint initiative between LWP and the YMCA, a Community Development Officer works to link our new community with the existing Byford township, by bringing new residents together with established community and sporting groups, whilst also identifying new facilities and services required by the growing community at The Glades.
A busy calendar of regular events is already underway, designed to bring people together, especially in the early days of the community.
Click here to view our current newsletter to see what’s happening at The Glades.
The Glades have a community development partnership between AWESOME Arts and LWP Property Group. The AWESOME partnership aims to chart new ways of thinking about arts development and community empowerment and encourages homeowners to take stewardship of their community.
AWESOME provides an integrated program of arts activities including sculpture, filmmaking, photography, voice/sound, visual arts and even radio broadcasting.
All projects are developed using LWP’s concept of creating healthy and sustainable communities, with an emphasis on conservation and the natural ecology of the area.
This unique approach to community art aspires to build social networks and instill a sense of place for residents in a rapidly growing new development.

In partnership with LWP and AWESOME Arts are proud to offer these free classes for toddlers and parents/carers. A fun, creative arts experience designed for children aged 0-5 years and their families, Creative Bubs includes free-play alongside an artist-led group session incorporating music, movement and storytelling.
Though Creative Bubs, we hope to provide opportunities for families to make new friends and to be part of a collective of people making Byford brighter for young families!
These classes are held on at The Glades Community Centre, 131 Abernethy Road, Byford on the second Tuesday of every month at 9am-11am. Our next class will be on Tuesday, 12 August 2014. Numbers are limited so book early by contacting Kate on 0428 186 706 or by emailing email@example.com.
The Glades is EnviroDevelopment Certified
The Glades at Byford has become the first development in Western Australia to achieve certification in three categories in the Urban Development Institute of Australia’s EnviroDevelopment program. The Glades has achieved certification in the Ecosystems, Water and Community categories of the program, which assesses the sustainability credentials of a development.
The major concept behind the development was to embrace the semi-rural town character of the Byford area and integrate this new development with sensibility, charm and key sustainability features.
Amongst the outstanding community initiatives, The Glades Arts & Produce Market which is held every month features around 80 stalls selling everything from unique & original hand crafted arts and crafts to fresh locally grown fruit and vegetables. This is a fantastic initiative which fosters the growth of the community and helps build meaningful relationships whilst providing an opportunity for informal employment.
Targets have been set for water efficiency across the development through the effective native landscaping of Public Open Spaces, waterwise front landscaping packages and rainwater tanks which will be plumbed internally into the dwellings to contribute towards reducing the overall dependence on potable water.
Of the key ecosystems achievements, the natural waterways will be enhanced throughout the development - with the protection of Cardup Brook and retention of minor creek lines which will provide key environmental features with recreational and visual amenity.
