Sunday is fun day in Fremantle and tomorrow will be a good day for music, but first things first and start the day at the Growers Green Farmers Market on Lefroy Road from 8am till midday. They have live music as well!

From 2-4 pm the free courtyard music session at the Fremantle Arts Centre with Luke Dux and Atomic Lunchbox is on.

The WAM Award-winner performs stripped back, acoustic versions of his extensive catalogue of solo tunes. Joined by a line up of talented musicians, be captivated by his moody lowdown blues style and intricate guitar work.

And from 5-7 there is Folk&Roots and a great sunset at J Shed on Bathers Beach and food van Flying Falafels will be there for dinner. This is also a free family event!

It should be a very good day of community fun, so I am looking forward to it!

The Fremantle GROWERS GREEN FARMERS MARKET needs and deserves the support of the Fremantle community and beyond, so please spread the word not only in Fremantle but tell friends from other suburbs how great this community market is.

It is on every Sunday from 8-12 at the South Fremantle Senior High School on Lefroy Road and part proceeds got to the school.

I love Growers Green as it has a real sense of community and it is very relaxing to spend an hour there connecting with people, listening to live music, have some nice breakfast and buy great fresh produce.

See you there on Sunday!

ROYAL REASON TO VISIT FREO’S GROWERS GREEN MARKETS

There is now a real royal reason to visit the Fremantle Growers Green Farmers Markets on Sunday morning.

During the recent visit to W.A. by the King and Queen of the Netherlands Fremantle Treacle Treat food van owner Linda Haanskorf-de Jongh offered the Royals a gift of her delicious home-made stroopwavels, which she sells at Growers Green.

I don’t think Linda will be allowed to put the Dutch royal weapon on her van and call herself a hofleverant, but it is great recognition for this small business operator who only started Treacle Treat a couple of years ago.

Oh and a reminder to the City of Fremantle CEO, who asked me about it, that this is the stall that sells bitterballen and croquettes as well!

Well done Linda!
