BIG GROWERS GREEN MARKETS TOMORROW

Posted in city of fremantle, community, food, growers green markets, Uncategorized by freoview on October 6, 2018

It is the first Sunday of the month tomorrow and that means that there will be a BIG Growers Green Farmers Market at Fremantle College in Beaconsfield.

I love the new location east of the new buildings as there are so many trees, so heaps of shade to sit under and enjoy a great breakfast with friends and family, while contemplating what to shop for.

There are lots of organic fruits and vegatbles, breads and pastries, eggs, etc. and of course there will be live music, face painting and Farner Damian’s animal touch farm.

The markets are open from 8am till midday at Lefroy Road.

GLORIOUS SUNDAY FOR FREMANTLE

The forecast for today is 24 degrees and sunny so get out and about and (re)discover beautiful Fremantle.

Start at the Growers Green Farmers Markets at Fremantle College in Beaconsfield, open from 8am till midday.

Then have coffee at one of our delightful cafes, before checking out Open Day at Notre Dame University in the historic West End.

While there you can re-acquaint yourself with the Felice Varine yellow artwork along High Street, as a lot of people did yesterday.

And then it’s just about time for lunch or an afternoon drink at our inner city Bathers Beach, or at 1pm watch the firing of the cannon behind the Roundhouse, and visit the amazing Glen Cowans underwater photography gallery next to the old jail.

Freo is never boring!

The sun is out and it is a nice invigorating morning, so why not start the school holidays at the fantastic Fremantle Growers Green Farmers Market at Fremantle College on Lefroy Road.

They have plenty of hot drinks and food to keep you warm and there is a lot of fresh produce, breads, pastries and heap of other things.

The Growers Green is a great community meeting place to catch up with friends, or make new ones. There is live music by Freo musicians, Farmer Damian’s animal touch farm, face painting, etc.

Once you’ve done that go and enjoy the Winter World on the Esplanade and do some skating, build a snow man, drink mulled wine and eat roasted nuts.

Have a fun Sunday!

PERFECT SUNDAY FOR FREO’S BEST MARKET

Posted in city of fremantle, food, growers green markets, markets, Uncategorized by freoview on June 16, 2018

 

 

The sun is shining in Fremantle and the Dockers are playing good footy. Tomorrow is going to be a stunning day, until the next winter storm arrives in the late afternoon, so a perfect morning to go and spend some hours under the trees at the Growers Green Farmers Market at Fremantle College.

The new location of the market to the east of the new school building is superb, and there are several new stalls for great organic fruit and vegetables, breads, pastries, breakfast and lunch.

One of my favourites of course is the Dutch Treacle Treat stall that cooks all the favourite snacks I love from my country of birth. If you have not tried the absolutely yummy fluffy tiny pancake pockets Poffertjes, do it tomorrow! A great snack for young and old. Linda also sells Dutch beef croquettes and bitterballen, and stroopwafels.

There is live music and Farmer Damian’s animal touch farm is a favourite with children.

I’ll see you at the GG tomorrow morning! It’s open from 8am till midday on Lefroy Road, Beaconsfield.

SUPERB NEW LOCATION FOR GROWERS GREEN MARKETS

The new, and hopefully permanent, location of the Fremantle GROWERS GREEN FARMERS MARKET, just east of the Fremantle College new building is superb, and the best ever location for the Sunday market on Lefroy Road.

The atmosphere under all the mature trees is a truly delightful and will be much appreciated during the hot summer months as there is so much shade.

I give the Growers Green the inaugural Opinionated Loopy Award for the best market in the Perth metro area!

Well done to market owner Kylie Wheatley and good luck to all the stall holders.

For those from out of town, or new to Freo, the GG is open every Sunday from 8am till midday. Go and support our local traders!

It’s the first Sunday of the month, so the Fremantle Growers Green Farmers Markets will be extra big with the addition of art and craft stalls today.

There is live music, face painting and more. It’s the perfect and relaxed way to start a Sunday morning.
