GALATI AND SONS in Fremantle’s Wray Avenue have a very special weekend treat for all those who love mangoes.

Starting today you can buy a mango for just 29 cents from the back of the ute, so make sure to go and buy some for the kids and celebrate the Australia Day long weekend the Carnarvon way.

If you like strawberries there is only one place to be this afternoon and that is Fremantle!

The STRAWBERRY SUNDAY FESTIVAL is on from 12 midday to 3pm all along the Cappuccino Strip, so get the kids ready, polish the Zimmerframe, and come into the port city to show support for our local strawberry growers, who are doing it tough after the needle scare.

Brilliant idea!

Fremantle will become strawberry central this Sunday in a show of support for WA strawberry growers.

25,000 punnets of local strawberries will be delivered to restaurants and cafes along the Cappuccino Strip, who will be encouraged to create strawberry-inspired dishes and give away strawberries to customers.

Fremantle-based strawberry distributor John Da Silva said Strawberry Sunday was a way for people to show their support for local growers affected by the strawberry contamination scare.

“We’ve got 20 tonnes of strawberries that have been donated from local growers to make this event happen,” Mr Da Silva said.

“Getting lots of people down to Freo on Sunday to enjoy our beautiful WA strawberries would be a fantastic demonstration of confidence in our local industry and a real boost for the growers who are doing it tough at the moment.”

Mayor Brad Pettitt said the City of Fremantle was happy to support Strawberry Sunday.

“Fremantle is famous for its fabulous restaurants and cafes, and I’m sure they’ll be able to come up with some amazing new recipes using fresh WA strawberries,” Mayor Pettitt said.

“Everyone is welcome to come down to Freo for Strawberry Sunday to show the world that WA strawberries are not only safe to eat, they’re also absolutely delicious!”

The City is also planning a range of family-friendly activities, including face painting, live music and more.

Strawberry Sunday is on this Sunday from 12 noon until 3pm.

LET’S WIN THE STRAWBERRY WAR AGAINST MORONS

Posted in city of fremantle, community, food, health, Uncategorized by freoview on September 18, 2018

 

I think it is likely that there are some idiot copycats at work who are putting needles in strawberries in WA and our local growers are not at all to blame for it.

At IGA in South Freo today three punnets of strawberries were only $ 4.00 so a real bargain, and there is so much one can do with them.

Cut them in halves just to be sure, but don’t let them rot on the shelves and let some morons succeed in spreading fear.

An early reminder that the lovely Fremantle GROWERS GREEN FARMERS MARKETS, have relocated back to their old spot at Lefroy Road at Fremantle College.

The market has been a great meeting place for locals and beyond and is the perfect place to buy fresh produce, bread, and lots of other yummy things, as well as delicious breakfast and coffee.

There is live music, the animal touch farm from Farmer Damian, face painting.

It’s lovely to sit on a rug under the trees and engage with your local community.
