There are also food stalls for yummy breakfast or take-away for lunch, great coffee, Farmer Damian’s animal touch farm for the kids, live music, face painting, and that unique very Freo community ambience.

And while in the area have a break in the Fremantle Arts Centre courtyard from2-4pm for the free Sunday music session with Web Rumors and Segue.

Em Burrows returns to the FAC with a six piece band, so expect sweeping synths, haunting sax and Em’s contralto voice.

The music feast starts of with pop duo Segue, so it will be an afternoon of experimental pop.

There is a lot on this Sunday, so take advantage of the good weather and connect with our Freo community.

There is a big Growers Green Farmers Market at Fremantle College on Lefroy Road from 8-12 with additional art&craft and other stalls to the usual fresh and organic produce, breads, pastries, coffee, breakfast, etc. There is of course live music, face painting and Farmer Damian’s animal touch farm.

From 10-12 the Repair Cafe is on again at Stackwood, corner Stack and Wood streets in White Gum Valley, so if you’ve got anything that needs repair that is the place to go to.

A new family friendly concept for foodies will open at Fremantle’s Beach Street next to The Mantle. Sunshine Harvester Works will have a brewery/distillery run by anchor tenant Union Brewery, a cafe, fresh produce market stalls, a butcher, greengrocer, florist, etc.

Celebrity chef Iain Lawless is involved in the exciting project that will add to the revitalisation of Fremantle’s east end.

There will be 800 sqm of pop-up and stall-based offerings for foodies and families.

It sounds great, so I can’t wait to see it!

It is so good to see so many new projects happening in Freo and this one is just around the corner from the recently opened LIV apartments and Heirloom.

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

Posted in city of fremantle, community, food, growers green markets, markets, Uncategorized by freoview on June 3, 2018

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!
