SOMA BAKERY, BAR AND PIZZA FOR LITTLE MARKET STREET

Posted in city of fremantle, food, hospitality, Uncategorized by freoview on April 1, 2019

 

 

Great news that Freo’s Little Market Street, behind Gino’s, will be reactivated again with a new bakery, bar and pizza restaurant opening in a few weeks time.

The SOMA will be run by the owners of the building, who already repainted the building, beautifully tiled the small wall that separates the alfresco area, and are putting down large floor tiles inside the building as well.

Little Market Street will just be called that again and no longer piazza.

Stay tuned for the opening and some interior photos here on Freo’s View soon!

ANOTHER ONE BITES THE FREO DUST

Han's

 

It appears that the Han’s restaurant in the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour will be closing soon with new For Lease signs put up at the building.

I hardly ever saw people in the restaurant while Cicerello’s, Kailis and the Bathers Beach House were packed full.

The premises of the former Mussel Bar in the FBH are still vacant as well, so hopefully those spaces can be filled with new operators soon.

PLASTIC FREE FISH AND SIPS A FIRST FOR FREMANTLE

 

The Fish and Sips festival at  the Coast Port Beach this weekend will be the first Fremantle festival that will be single-use plastic free.

Fremantle Council adopted the sustainable events policy in November last year. The policy excludes the provision, use, distribution or sale of single-use plastics including straws, cutlery, bottles, cups, plates, containers, bags and cling-wrap at all events produced by the City of Fremantle.

Although single-use plastics are not banned from third party events in Fremantle, the policy does encourage event organisers not to use them.  Fish and Sips wants to support that, so they’ve purchased 15,000 reusable polycarbonate and melamine cups specifically for the festival.

Coast is very aware of the beach environment they are operating in and for the Cuban club event recently they served 35,000 drinks in a day with no single-use plastic, and in this Fish and Sips event they’ll be doing similar numbers over the weekend – all of this in reusable cups.

The venue management believe it’s essential to the survival of Coast Port Beach that they’re able to use the beach and the beautiful ocean backdrop, so they are doing their part to preserve this and also blazing a trail by being the first event to do this on a large scale

Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt said “The impact of plastic in our environment is well documented, with some studies suggesting that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish.  The fact that you can put on a large event like Fish and Sips and not use single-use plastic demonstrates there are cost effective alternatives available.”

The Fish and Sips festival is on from Friday 29 March until Sunday 31 March.

FASTER TAKE-AWAY AT MOORE&MOORE

The lovely Moore&Moore cafe in Fremantle’s Henry Street has got a new hole in the wall window to serve take-away coffee from.

Inside the nook, to the right of the entrance, famous mural artist Stormy Mills has created a small artwork, and there is still a blank space next to it so we might see another one of his creations in the M&M. Once the second space has also been filled I’ll take a photo and show you what it looks like.

MANY ENJOY THE PORTSIDE MARKET ON VICTORIA QUAY

Posted in city of fremantle, fremantle ports, market, Uncategorized by freoview on March 16, 2019

aa

 

The Portside Traders Market in Fremantle was very popular this morning, and it is still going till 4pm today, so plenty of time to head out to Victoria Quay.

It is best not to try to park too close by though because traffic flow along Cliff and Phillimore streets and parking are an issue.

The plant sale at B Shed was very popular and so were the many food stalls, art&craft, vintage motorbikes and fashion.

Enjoy it!!

BUSINESS OF NEW FREMANTLE CHAMBER CEO IN LIQUIDATION

 

What a strange coincidence that the Fremantle Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday last week announced that its new CEO will be Danicia Quinlan, but in today’s West Australian it is reported that Quinlan and co-owner Michael Taylor have closed their Fromage Artisans in the Perth CBD and called in the liquidators because the business is not financially viable.

MARKET UNDER TREES AND PAPAYA TREE IN FREO

 

dsc_0010-1

 

It’s the long WA Labour Day weekend, so no reason not to be out and about in Fremantle on Sunday, as most of us won’t have to turn up for work on Monday or get the kids to school early.

Autumn has started and it was pleasantly cool this morning, so why not head out between 8am and noon to the fantastic Growers Green Farmers Market at Fremantle College on Lefroy Road in Beaconsfield.

It is the first Sunday of the month, so that means it is a big market with additional art&craft stalls, etc.

There is plenty of fresh produce, breads, pastries, eggs, organic and vegan food and of course yummy, coffee, breakfast and lunch on the menu.

Papaya Tree

 

From 2-4pm NSW youngsters Papaya Tree will be performing their mix of reggae, funk, rock and jazz in the Fremantle Arts Centre courtyard. It is a FREE concert!

The cafe, pizza bar and bar will be open and there are some great new exhibitions as well.
