WELCOME TO THE FREO FARMERS MARKET!

Posted in city of fremantle, community, growers green markets, market, Uncategorized by freoview on October 30, 2019

 

 

The Sunday Growers Green Farmers Market at Fremantle College on Lefroy Road will have a big name and brand change this weekend and will be known from then on as the FREO FARMERS MARKET, which makes a lot of sense.

Along with the name change there are new stalls starting up at the market and there will be a birthday marquee that can be reserved for celebrations with cakes ordered directly from the cake stall at the market. New picnic mats for breakfast goers, changes in the layout, and that the market will now be open every Sunday all year round. The regular break at Christmas time has been voted out by the farmers and foodies in favour of keeping the market open in order to supply locals with fruit, veg, eggs, breads, fish and meats over the holiday season. It is peak stone fruit time so being a seasonal market they need to take advantage of this time of year.

Freo Farmers Market gives a free stall every week to a Not-for-profit/ community groups and the phone has been running hot for Christmas market stall bookings. Stalls this Christmas season include Rocky Bay, Hilton Harvest, John Curtin Art Students, End Poverty charity in Nepal, with locals are keen to support their groups by volunteering to run stalls.

There are over 50 stalls every Sunday, including 7 Fruit and vegetable stalls, 15 breakfast stalls, 3 bread, 2 coffee and honey, seafood, organic meat, cakes, flowers, massage, artisans, dog food, tea, and the return of the hairdresser provide a shopping alternative away from the sterile supermarkets and support local business’s and families.

Cup stations, plastic free shopping and face to face chats with the farmers, creators and makers have created an atmosphere of a friendly, healthy and inclusive community that reflects the Freo spirit.

Children’s childhood memories are bright at Freo Farmers Market with activities such as Farmer Damian’s Moomobile, Ariane’s Craft workshops, and Ladybird Entertainment with Fairy Sandie’s face painting. Live music showcases some of Freo’s best talents, new talents.

See you at the FREO FARMERS MARKET this Sunday!

BIG FREMANTLE FARMERS MARKET SUNDAY

 

dsc_0001

 

It is going to be a BIG Fremantle Farmers Market on the first Sunday of the month, so make sure to visit it.

For me it is the best community market in metropolitan Perth where friends catch up and where old friends bump into each other. It is a market for families, dogs, connecting, networking, meeting new people and making new friends.

There are great fruit&vegetable stalls with lots of fresh produce from small farms, and real free range eggs. There are stalls with breads and pastries, fresh fish and there are food stalls for yummy breakfast and coffee while live music is playing.

Farmer Damian’s petting zoo is there and face painting and it’s all under the lovely setting of mature trees at Fremantle College on Lefroy Road.

Because it is the BIG start of the month market there will also be art and craft stalls and much more.

It’s on from 8am till noon, so see you there!

SPUDSHED OPENS TODAY NEAR SOUTH FREMANTLE

 

Tony Galati is opening another SPUDSHED at Rockingham Road just out of South Fremantle today.

The store will be open 24/7 and will no doubt be a big competition for Woolworth, Aldi and IGA in South Freo.

Lots of free potatoes are on offer today to celebrate the opening, so go and have a look.

I’ll definitely go there as it will be the closest store to buy Dutch kroketten and bitterballen. Yum!

SPUDSHED FOR SPEARWOOD

Posted in city of fremantle, food, Uncategorized by freoview on February 13, 2019

 

Good news for those Fremantle people who have made long journeys to shop at Spudshed.

Tony Galati is returning to his roots and is opening a new Spudshed in the former IGA supermarket premises on Rockingham Road, very close to South Fremantle.

The 2000 square metre shop will open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

I am not sure what the opening date is,  but Galati promises it to be before Easter, so keep an eye on it!

BIG GROWERS GREEN MARKETS TOMORROW

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

It is the first Sunday of the month tomorrow and that means that there will be a BIG Growers Green Farmers Market at Fremantle College in Beaconsfield.

I love the new location east of the new buildings as there are so many trees, so heaps of shade to sit under and enjoy a great breakfast with friends and family, while contemplating what to shop for.

There are lots of organic fruits and vegatbles, breads and pastries, eggs, etc. and of course there will be live music, face painting and Farner Damian’s animal touch farm.

The markets are open from 8am till midday at Lefroy Road.

SUPERB NEW LOCATION FOR GROWERS GREEN MARKETS

Posted in city of fremantle, community, food, growers green markets, markets, Uncategorized by freoview on June 3, 2018

The new, and hopefully permanent, location of the Fremantle GROWERS GREEN FARMERS MARKET, just east of the Fremantle College new building is superb, and the best ever location for the Sunday market on Lefroy Road.

The atmosphere under all the mature trees is a truly delightful and will be much appreciated during the hot summer months as there is so much shade.

I give the Growers Green the inaugural Opinionated Loopy Award for the best market in the Perth metro area!

Well done to market owner Kylie Wheatley and good luck to all the stall holders.

For those from out of town, or new to Freo, the GG is open every Sunday from 8am till midday. Go and support our local traders!
