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!

The popular THE MANTLE food market on the corner of James and Beach streets has applied to the City of Fremantle for a partial change of the venue to tavern, micro brewery and distillery.

The licensed area would only be for 120 patrons and opening times are Tuesday-Thursday 7am to 9m and Friday to Sunday from 7am to 11pm.

Next door to The Mantle The Sunshine will open soon with a food and fresh produce market, so the two combined should become a real attraction in the far east of the Fremantle CBD.  There is ample parking along Beach Street and good access to public transport as well.

The officers have recommended that the application for a tavern will be approved. The item is on Wednesday’s Fremantle Council’s Planning Committee agenda.

VISIT THE FREO CHRISTMAS MARKET

Posted in christmas, city of fremantle, hospitality, Uncategorized by freoview on December 20, 2017

 

 

There is not a lot going on in Fremantle during the festive season, so not much to write about.

A reminder that the Christmas Market at the Moore&Moore cafe is still on today and tomorrow from 10 am to 4 pm.

There is a children’s playground in the courtyard and they serve good food and coffee, and Henry Street has been re-opened to traffic after the inappropriate closure a few days ago for work that was done on one of the footpaths.
