There is more rain on the way this Sunday so if you want to connect with the community while staying dry and under cover, head to the FLEA MARKET at the Fibonacci Centre from 11.30 today.

The cosy Blinco Street Cafe will offer hot drinks and food to keep body and soul warm and the community ambience of it all will also warm the heart.

Before that though do all your fresh fruit and vegie shopping at the Growers Green. Open from 8 am till midday.

See you there!

A bit of self-indulgence. I love those clouds so much that I want to repost this photo that I published in B&W yesterday.

Don’t forget the Growers Green Market in on till 12 today and the Fibonacci Centre FLEA MARKET runs at Blinco Street from 11.30.

The cute cafe is open for food and coffee, artists will have their studios open, and go have a chat with the lovely people at Spandau Yoga. And of course there will be live music!

It’s a very musical Sunday again in Fremantle with some of my creative friends performing around town. Alan Dawson is one of the EMPIRE BLUES duo playing at the Growers Green market, then from 11.30 am on my mate Ari will be playing on the deck of the lovely BLINCO STREET CAFE in the Fibonacci Centre, and from 2 pm my Clancy’s mate TOM FISHER AND THE LAYABOUTS will be performing at the free Sunday concert in the Fremantle Arts Centre.

The only hiccup to a perfect Sunday could be the rain that is forecast but knowing our weather it will probably never come.

On Saturday go check out the all new Elizabeth Quay in Perth and enjoy the Swan River Markets from 8.30 to 1.30. Lots of stalls with Fremantle people so go support them even when north of the might Swan river!

After a well-deserved Christmas break the delightful Fremantle GROWERS GREEN Farmers Market will be back this Sunday and every Sunday from 8 am till noon. It is a great community event to buy fresh produce and catch up with friends over breakfast.

Farmer Damian’s animal touch farm will be there and Fairy Sandy and the face painting fairies and of course there will be live music by local Freo musicians.

The market is held at the South Fremantle Senior High School at Lefroy Road, Beaconsfield. See you there!

Today is the last GROWERS GREEN FARMERS MARKET of 2015 at the South Fremantle Senior High School on Lefroy Road, so don’t miss it! It will be a big market with fantastic Christmas presents on offer and of course all the great fresh produce, organic fruit and vegetables, bread, pastries, fish, meat, eggs, etc.

There will be very special entertainment by Kavisha and Giri Mazzella in the music tent from 9-11.30 and Voicebox will perform Poems of Peace and Goodwill from 9-10.30.

But there is more!! (Sorry, no steak knives) The Growers Green Christmas Party is on at the Hilton Bowling Club from 2 pm on. Free entry, live music, barefoot bowling and drinks at club prices, so join the community fun!

The Growers Green market has raised many thousands of dollars over the last years to support the South Freo senior high school, so your support for the market is also a support for the school and community.

If you love markets the way I do you might not want to wait for the BIG Fremantle GROWERS GREEN Farmers Market on Sunday, so hop on the train tomorrow to Perth and join me at the SWAN RIVER COMMUNITY MARKETS at Barrack Street, behind the Belltower.

It is a great location and there are lots of food and other stalls, live music, and animal touch farm and fairies and face painting for the children.

Channel 7 will be filming all morning so this is a good chance of getting your face on TV.

We are open from 8-1 on Saturday! Se you there!

Posted in fremantle, perth, swan river community markets by freoview on October 18, 2015

We do markets well in Fremantle, even when we do them in Perth. Freo’s Red Tent Events owner Kylie Wheatley, who also manages the Growers Green Farmers Markets in Beaconsfield, was contracted by the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority to create the SWAN RIVER COMMUNITY MARKETS at Barrack Street on Elizabeth Quay.

The market is wedged between the Swan River ferry terminal and the Belltower and is rather special in that location. It has food stalls, fresh produce, arts and crafts, an animal touch farm, live music, Fairy Sandie and live music.

Leave your car at Murdoch and hop on the train to the Esplanade Station. The market is on on Saturdays from 8.30 am to 1 pm.
