It is going to be a great day in Fremantle, so why not start at the Growers Green Farmers Market this morning. It’s on from 8am to midday at Annie Street, Beaconsfield.

After that visit one of our many lovely local cafes and then from 2-4 pm relax in the courtyard of the Fremantle Arts Centre, where Victorian duo This Way North will entertain us with soulful vocals and alt-pop melodies, combined with solid groove based drumming.

They are sometimes likened to the Black Keys and Tame Impala.

Also performing at the FAC this afternoon is Belle Harvey. who will be singing alt-country and folk tales.

And if you need more after that, Jook Joint is performing at the National Hotel from 3.30-6.30 pm.

FREO SCHOOL HOLIDAY FUN

Posted in children, city of fremantle, community, Uncategorized by freoview on September 19, 2017

 

 

School holidays are coming up, so parents will be keen to find things to do in Fremantle with their children, so take note of these two events!

On Saturday it is PIRATE DAY at the lovely Duyfken replica sailing ship from 11 am to 4pm. It is at berth behind Little Creatures in the Fishing Boat Harbour.

It’s one of your last chances to visit the ship in Freo as it will be sailing up the Swan River and be at berth at Elizabeth Quay in Perth for several months.

On Sunday the Growers Green Farmers Market has something very special on for the kids. There will be sheep shearing at Farmer Damian’s animal touch farm, something not to be missed!

GREAT FATHER’S DAY AT GROWERS GREEN MARKETS

Posted in city of fremantle, growers green, Uncategorized by freoview on September 3, 2017

 

 

I love the Sunday GROWERS GREEN FARMERS MARKET as much as I love Fremantle. It is a true community market with great atmosphere where Freo people meet friends and family, while shopping for fresh fruit and vegetables, bread, etc.

It was packed full with families today. It was amazing how many babies had the brilliant idea of taken dad out for Father’s Day to the Growers Green.

I only wanted to stay for an hour, but that became two hours because I bumped into so many people.

Had a long chat with the owner of the Fremantle Herald Andrew Smith, talked my birth lingo with Dutch friends from Treacle Treat and the Duyfken, said hello to Minister Simone McGurk and Councillor Hannah Fitzhardinge and election candidate Kathy Anketell, The Fib’s Robby Lang was there, as was architect Tobias Bush, and of course market manager Kylie Wheatley.

The GGFM is open every Sunday from 8 am till noon at Annie Street in Beaconsfield and raises funds for the South Fremantle Senior High School, so make the trip next Sunday!

BOOMERANG BAGS FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

Posted in environment, fremantle, growers green markets, recycling, Uncategorized by freoview on June 16, 2017

 

Boomerang Bags

 

The Fremantle Growers Green Farmers Market have taken on the challenge of banning plastic bags in the market and will join the Boomerang Bags project this Sunday. 

Boomerang Bags is a not-for-profit organisation whose aim is to reduce the use of plastic bags by engaging local communities to make re-usable (or boomerang) bags out of recycled material. It was only launched 3 years ago, and already 85,953+ Boomerang Bags have been made which has reduced plastic bag use by around 47 Million!

There are already 273+ Boomerang Bags Communities underway with Fremantle now joining the cause.

Growers Green  have been trying to educate the stallholders, and most are on board but plastic continues to come into the market. This is mostly due to lack of planning, forgetting to bring your own bags for shopping, or spontaneously deciding to buy a few things. 

The organisers aim is to make 1000 Boomerang Bags for Fremantle to really make an impact and be as handy and accessible as the plastic bag. The important thing is they are free for the shop and free for the customer. Shoppers will be offered free-to-borrow, re-usable bags made by volunteers.

It has been reported that Australian consumers use about 3.92 billion plastic bags per year, and it’s up to all of us to make a difference for the health of our environment and the animal life we impact.

Boomerang Bags Fremantle are hoping that sewing groups, social groups, students and community members can help with this wonderful initiative and join on Sundays  for bag making; or create their own bags to donate. All bags must be made from recycled fabric and there is a silk screen available for branding the bags.

The market is on every Sunday from 8 am to midday at Annie Street in Beaconsfield.

 

INVIGORATING KALLIDAD AT FREO ARTS CENTRE

Posted in concert, fremantle, fremantle arts centre, music by freoview on January 14, 2017

kalidad

 

Don’t miss KALLIDAD at the Fremantle Arts Centre free Sunday Music Sessions tomorrow from 2-4!

I heard this group for the first time at the FAC and loved it. Their music has so much invigorating energy that I still must have been out of breath hours later.

The FAC writes: Witness the musical sorcery of Kallidad (NSW) as they combine flamenco virtuosity with thrash metal aggression, mariachi humour, tribal percussion and rock n’ roll attitude.

It is great to see kids coming to the performance with their face painted like the Kallidad musicians, so it is a musical and visual spectacle for old and young to enjoy. I’ll be there for sure!

But of course before that start your Sunday morning at the Growers Green Farmers Market on from 8-12.
