BIG GROWERS GREEN MARKETS TODAY!

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

 

 

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.

The Growers Green is loved for its family and dog friendly community ambience where friends catch up for a chat over nice breakfast and good coffee while browsing for fresh produce, fruit and vegetables, breads, pastries, cakes, etc.

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

It’s open from 8am till midday at the Fremantle College, Lefroy Road, Beaconsfield.

FRUITS&VEGIES AND HOWLS

There can be comfort in routine, so why not follow my Sunday routine with a visit to the Growers Green Farmers Market in the morning and then the free courtyard music session at the Fremantle Arts Centre in the afternoon.

Great breakfasts, fresh produce, bread, etc. at the Lefroy Road markets from 8 am till midday. Try some of the Dutch flavourites at the Treacle Treat stall of my friend Linda!

The Fremantle Arts Centre has Dan Howls on show from 2-4pm, who has quickly won fans with his dark blues guitar and gravelly vocals.

With a voice likened to Tom Waits, a new EP and a full band, come and see why Howls is generating so much buzz. He’ll be supported by local songwriter Ashby Ranson (WA).

It’s going to be a perfect day to be out and about in Fremantle and connect with your community, so don’t be a couch potato!

STUDIO 37 CAFE SATURDAY BREAKFAST

Posted in cafe, food, fremantle, Uncategorized by freoview on June 16, 2017

My mate Tom at the lovely STUDIO 37 Cafe in the PS ART SPACE in Pakenham Street is now open for Saturday breakfast from 8 am till midday, so go and enjoy great coffee and food in the cavernous heritage space that often has fantastic art exhibitions.

Several offices, including Centrelink have closed in Pakenham Street so there is plenty of parking in the area.

The cafe is just twenty metres from High Street.

Nice to see City of Fremantle CEO Phil StJohn up and about early and enjoying a hearty breaky.

NEW SWAN RIVER COMMUNITY MARKETS ON SATURDAY

Posted in fremantle, markets, perth by freoview on October 13, 2015

Swan River Community Markets

I don’t often promote things that are happening in Perth because Freo’s View is a Fremantle, blog but the new SWAN RIVER COMMUNITY MARKETS at the new Elizabeth Quay is managed by our own Freo’s Kylie Wheatley of Red Tent Events and I’ll be the supervisor, so come along and support us!

We are starting this Saturday October 17 from 8 am till 1 pm. Not ideal for me because it is Council election day, but that’s just the way it is.

Leave your car at Murdock station and hop on the train to the Esplanade station and you’ll be there, or take the train from Freo to Perth and walk 15 minutes from there to the Belltower.

And all of you from all over Perth, please do come and support the market as it is a six-week trial, so if you don’t turn up the market will not continue.

See you on Saturday! SHARE THIS POST PLEASE!
