I always enjoy my Sunday mornings at the Fremantle Growers Green Markets in Lefroy Street. It is such a really nice community event with families sitting in the grass enjoying coffee and breakfast, while the kids get their faces painted, have a play or listen to the live music. It has become a meeting place for friends to get together and it is very Freo.
The fruit, vegies and eggs are so fresh, and there is meat and fish, bread, pastries, and heaps to eat and drink, to make a relaxing start to Sunday. It’s on again from 8-12 tomorrow, so make the trip to the South Freo Senior High School and do some placemaking.
Family fun in Fremantle all weekend! It starts with the lighting of the Moreton Bay Fig Chrismas Tree at Kings Square from 6 this Friday. Check out the lit-up buildings in High Street while you are there!
The big Bathers Beach Sunset Food Markets is on Saturday from 5-9.
Sunday morning at 8 is the huge Santa Run through the City centre. It starts at the Esplanade. And the Growers Green Farmers Market will be a big XMas gift markets as well at the South Fremantle Senior High School in Lefroy Street on Sunday from 8-12.
So don’t be a reclusive cave sitter, leave the meditation and yoga for another day, and enjoy the Freo lifestyle this weekend!
I will be managing the J Shed location of the Bathers Beach Markets
The Fremantle GROWERS GREEN MARKETS is one of my favourite Sunday morning locations. I love the real Freo community atmosphere there and the huge variety of food and eclectic other goods. It is just fun to be there, to catch up with people, and bump into councillors and give them a piece of mind, or a compliment. It’s a great place for networking, good coffee, yummy breakfast, and the kids and dogs love it too.
Tomorrow there will be over 120 stalls, so it will be a huge market where one can easily spend an hour or two. I’ll be there! Mayor Brad Pettitt will be there from 10 am.
One hundred and twenty stalls will create a huge Fremantle GROWERS GREEN MARKETS on Sunday at the South Fremantle Senior High School in Lefroy Street, so go and buy your vegies, fruit, bread and eggs, browse for art, craft and fashion, or buy breakfast and coffee from one of the many food stalls while enjoying live music and dancers.
If early mornings are your time of the day to engage in politics, why not question Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt who will be there at 10 am. Have a chat with him and see how he envisages Freo’s Future.
I love the Fremantle GROWERS GREEN Sunday farmers markets at the South Fremantle Senior High School, so the fact that they were celebrating their 3rd anniversary inspired me to walk over this morning and take some photos of what went on.
It is such a lovely and relaxed very Freo place to spend a Sunday morning and I highly recommend it to anyone. It’s great for families, children, dogs, grumpy old people, and the variety of goods for sale is impressive. Check it out on one of the next Sundays if you haven’t done it yet, or become a regular and make Growers Green your Sunday morning meeting place to catch up with friends. Great breakfast and coffee in the warming morning sun!
The fantastic people of the South Fremantle Senior High School are celebrating the third birthday of the FREMANTLE GROWERS GREEN Farmers Markets this Sunday.
Over a hundred stalls will be put up at Lefroy Street, so wander down on foot, on the bike or by car and enjoy a morning in the cosy winter sun. There is great food and coffee for breakfast and fresh fruit, vegetables, eggs, bread, etc. Try the whiskey cured smoked salmon. It’s to die for!
The markets are open between 8-12 am. See you all there!
It’s going to be a stunning Saturday so come on down to Fremantle for the start of the STREET ART FESTIVAL from midday, move on to the BATHERS BEACH SUNSET FOOD MARKET from 5-9, and don’t miss the fantastic fire tango by BILBOBASSO on the Esplanade at 7.30 pm. In between check out the SCULPTURE@BATHERS on the beach.
And when you wake up on Sunday morning the South Fremantle GROWERS GREEN MARKET will be open from 8-12 tomorrow!
I love markets. Markets remind me of my childhood when dad often used to take me on Saturday mornings to the bustling and noisy one in Hague in the Netherlands. Screaming traders tried to entice one in buying their products and what a variety there was. Lots of fresh vegetables, fish, smoked eel, there were food stalls where I would get chips with mayo or beef croquettes, and there were many stalls selling fresh flowers. My dad always bough mum flowers on Saturdays.
This morning I went to the Fremantle Growers Green Market at the South Fremantle Senior High School. It is such a homely market and so peaceful. None of that shouting we used to get in Holland. The food stalls are just great and it is hard to make a decision on what to eat there for breakfast. The coffee is also excellent and it is nice to linger at a table and watch shoppers go by with kids and dogs in tow.
There is yummie whiskey or rum cured smoked salmon for sale, but also smoked eggs, duck, chicken and trout. The tiny Carnarvon bananas I bought are so sweet and the organic fruitloaf with figs, etc. is perfect. One can buy the freshest eggs, most fantastic bread and pastries and shining fresh fruit and vegetable and all that is the most delightful setting.
The organisors of the Growers Green have applied for a Saturday market at Bathers Beach and I hope council will approve of it although one nearby trader is against it. Markets are great meeting places for the community to get together and individual selfishness should be ignored when council decides to give the market a (fair) go.
