The very Freo Fremantle GROWERS GREEN MARKETS are on again this Sunday from 8 am to 12 noon at the South Fremantle Senior High School on Lefroy Road.
Bread, pastries, meat, fish, eggs, organic, fruit, vegetables, preserves, flowers, food stalls with yummy breakfast offerings, great coffee, community connection, children entertainment, live music. All together a great celebration of life and the unique Freo lifestyle!
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.
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.
That delightful Sunday Fremantle community fresh market GROWERS GREEN is offering even more this Sunday with a display of cute ferrets and ferret racing. The kids will love it, so make the trip to Lefroy Road between 8-12, buy fruit, vegies, breads, etc. and connect with your Freo community.

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.
There will be a big Fremantle GROWERS GREEN fundraising markets on tomorrow, Sunday August 3, from 8 am to 12 noon at the South Fremantle Senior High School.

Of course there will be plenty to eat for breakfast and lunch from the many food stalls and there is always very good coffee.

There are two great local farmers markets on this long WA DAY long weekend, so go and buy some great fresh produce, network with your community, drink yummie coffee and eat delicious food while listening to live music.
This Saturday the COOBY FARMERS MARKET is on from 9am-2pm at the Len Packham Reserve on Waverley Road Coolbellup, and on Sunday the traditional first Sunday of the month HUGE Fremantle GROWERS GREEN MARKETS are on from 8am to noon at the South Fremantle Senior High School at Lefroy Road. There is art and craft, bread, pastries, meat, fish, food stalls forgreat breakfast, facepainting, music, and it is a lot of fun.
Local markets give one a great sense of belonging to one’s community and are a great way of catching up with friends and neighbours in a relaxed outdoor atmosphere, so take advantage of them.
Don’t be a fruitloop or basketcase and turnip at the Fremantle GROWERS GREEN MARKETS this Sunday morning between 8-12 at the South Fremantle Senior High School in Lefroy Street.
It’s a huge market with fruit and baskets and vegetable, great eggs, meat, fish, bread, pastries, yummy breakfast, or take some food home for lunch from one of the stalls. The coffee and atmosphere is great and there is so much to have a look at, or simply relax and watch the passing parade of Freo celebs and lesser knowns.
I always enjoy my Sunday mornings at the Fremantle Growers Green Markets in Lefroy Street. It is such a really nice community event with families sitting in the grass enjoying coffee and breakfast, while the kids get their faces painted, have a play or listen to the live music. It has become a meeting place for friends to get together and it is very Freo.
The fruit, vegies and eggs are so fresh, and there is meat and fish, bread, pastries, and heaps to eat and drink, to make a relaxing start to Sunday. It’s on again from 8-12 tomorrow, so make the trip to the South Freo Senior High School and do some placemaking.
