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.

NOONGAR WALKWAY AT FREMANTLE MARKETS

After yesterday’s blog post about tourism in Fremantle, and the lack of Aboriginal experience for overseas tourists, I was contacted by Fremantle Markets CEO Natasha Atkinson about their indigenous art trial and wildflower exhibition.

The Aboriginal walkway art trail and wildflowers show celebrate one of six Noongar seasons and throughout the year the markets will showcase all Noongar seasons with new displays.

The art trail, celebrating the Djilba season, was painted on the walkway by indigenous artist Deborah Newenham-Coertse and will be there all of September.

On Friday mornings there is also a Welcome to Country by Whadjuk Noongar man Walter McGuire

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!
