GREAT FATHER’S DAY AT GROWERS GREEN MARKETS

Posted in city of fremantle, growers green, Uncategorized by freoview on September 3, 2017

 

 

I love the Sunday GROWERS GREEN FARMERS MARKET as much as I love Fremantle. It is a true community market with great atmosphere where Freo people meet friends and family, while shopping for fresh fruit and vegetables, bread, etc.

It was packed full with families today. It was amazing how many babies had the brilliant idea of taken dad out for Father’s Day to the Growers Green.

I only wanted to stay for an hour, but that became two hours because I bumped into so many people.

Had a long chat with the owner of the Fremantle Herald Andrew Smith, talked my birth lingo with Dutch friends from Treacle Treat and the Duyfken, said hello to Minister Simone McGurk and Councillor Hannah Fitzhardinge and election candidate Kathy Anketell, The Fib’s Robby Lang was there, as was architect Tobias Bush, and of course market manager Kylie Wheatley.

The GGFM is open every Sunday from 8 am till noon at Annie Street in Beaconsfield and raises funds for the South Fremantle Senior High School, so make the trip next Sunday!

Growers Green

 

CONGRATULATIONS to the GROWERS GREEN Farmers Market team who were last night awarded one of the Fremantle Business Awards!

The GG is my very favourite market that is all about community and raising money for the South Fremantle Senior High School. It sells great fresh and a lot of organic produce, fantastic bread, pastry, and the food stalls sell yummy breakfast.

The Growers Green is at Lefroy Road and open every Sunday from 8 am till midday.

Well done, ladies!!!

SEE YOU ALL AT THE GROWERS GREEN ON SUNDAY!

The best hangover cure after the disappointing Fremantle Dockers finals loss to Hawthorn is a Sunday morning with the community at the delightful GROWERS GREEN FARMERS MARKET. Besides great fresh fruit and vegetables and the great atmosphere you’ll also have the chance to meet some of your candidates for the Fremantle Council election.

In between shopping, drinking coffee and having breaky wander over to my ROEL FOR FREO! stall and say G’day. I hear East Ward Councillor Ingrid Waltham will also be there, and the last two weekends I noticed Hilton candidate Sam Donovan and South Ward candidate Andrew Luobikis there, so catch up with any of us and tell us what changes you would like to see at Council. I think I might also have glimpsed South Ward Councillor Jon Strachan last week, unless he has a double.

See you all at the GG this Sunday!

GROWERS GREEN NEEDS TO BE SEEN!

Posted in fremantle, growers green, markets by freoview on January 24, 2015

I love the community aspect and the atmosphere of the Fremantle GROWERS GREEN MARKETS at the South Fremantle Senior High School. It is such a relaxed ambience and perfect to catch up with friends for a Sunday morning breakfast or coffee while shopping for food.

There are a lot of free range and organic products, fantastic breads and pastries, meat and fish, vegetables and fruits. Whatever is needed to cook great meals can be bought at the GG.

The breakfast menu is more extensive than any cafe with a large variety of international food stalls, and the kids won’t be bored because there is plenty to do for them as well.

The Growers Green is on each Sunday from 8 am till noon.
