Freo's View

The fantastically comfortable Fremantle GROWERS GREEN FARMERS MARKET will be celebrating its fifth birthday this Sunday with a big market that has got just about everything, so make sure not to muss it.

There will be live entertainment, facepainting and a touch animal farm and so many yummy things to buy for home but also to sit down and have breakfast and soak up the community spirit.

The Growers Green is my favourite market, so I’ll drop by to have a coffee and buy some fruit and vegies.

The markets is open from 8 am till midday and is at the South Fremantle Senior High School on Lefroy Road.

The event is organised by the school’s P&C, so it is a great way to support a local school while having fun and do the weekly shopping.

I love markets and that probably is because my father used to take me to the markets on Saturday mornings in The Hague, Netherlands, when I was a child. Whenever I travel markets are a priority on my agenda because they show the real culture and community of a place. It is amazing to read that the city of Barcelona in Spain has some 80 permanent markets and that most residents live within 15 minutes from a market there.

In Fremantle we are also blessed with the Fremantle and E Shed Markets, the Mad Hatter, the Victoria Quay one, the Princess May Markets on Friday nights and the beach market on Saturdays, and of course it has now become tradition for many Freo people to catch up with friends while shopping for food at the GROWERS GREEN MARKETS on Sunday mornings. I took some photos there on Sunday to inspire you to visit the HUGE extended market coming Sunday.

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.

Growers Green

There is still plenty of time to go to the Fremantle GROWERS GREEN MARKETS today. It’s open till midday and I took this photo half an hour ago. It is at Lefroy Road in front of the South Fremantle Senior High School.

It is a very community ambience and great fresh produce, plus fantatstic breads and pastries, meat, smoked salmon, the loveliest freerange eggs around, food stalls and more, so go for a stroll, buy some brekkie and coffee and enjoy the glorious day.

Also on is the Fremantle Arts Centre courtyard music but I can’t tell you who is playing today as it is not posted on the FAC Facebook page.

One of the most very Freo weekly events is no doubt the Growers Green Markets on Lefroy Road each Sunday morning from 8 am till 12 noon. It is a real community event that attracts families and lots of children and dogs from all over Fremantle and beyond.

There is so much fresh produce to buy and great food stalls that cater for breakfast and hangover needs and the coffees and pastries are yum!

There is live music by local artists and face painting for the kids. It is a fantastic relaxing way to chill out and start a Sunday.

Go and say hello to the ever-smiling Albert and buy some of his very freerange eggs and fruit&vegetables.
