It was a rather cool and cloudy early Sunday morning in Freo, but the sun is coming through right now at 9am, so get out and about and enjoy our beautiful city!

The Growers Green Farmers Market at Fremantle College on Lefroy Road is already underway and open till midday.

The FOMO Colour event by Sirona Capital at Fremantle Oval runs from 10am to 2pm and the hundreds of easels will create one very large canvas. Will it be a Guinness Book of Records entry?

The idea is for anyone-young and old- to come to the oval and paint an image, supported by local artists Anya Brock and Dave Spencer. It is a free event with entertainment and food stalls, so support it!

And from 2-4pm Emily Baker will be singing at the free courtyard music session in the Fremantle Arts Centre, where Animaze is also on with amazing animals for kids and lots to do.

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.

NEW FREO FAMILY FOODIE PROJECT

Posted in brewery, city of fremantle, food, hospitality, markets, Uncategorized by freoview on September 19, 2018

 

 

A new family friendly concept for foodies will open at Fremantle’s Beach Street next to The Mantle. Sunshine Harvester Works will have a brewery/distillery run by anchor tenant Union Brewery, a cafe, fresh produce market stalls, a butcher, greengrocer, florist, etc.

Celebrity chef Iain Lawless is involved in the exciting project that will add to the revitalisation of Fremantle’s east end.

There will be 800 sqm of pop-up and stall-based offerings for foodies and families.

It sounds great, so I can’t wait to see it!

It is so good to see so many new projects happening in Freo and this one is just around the corner from the recently opened LIV apartments and Heirloom.

GROWERS GREEN SCHOOL HOLIDAY START

Posted in children, city of fremantle, community, family, growers green markets, Uncategorized by freoview on July 1, 2018

 

 

The sun is out and it is a nice invigorating morning, so why not start the school holidays at the fantastic Fremantle Growers Green Farmers Market at Fremantle College on Lefroy Road.

They have plenty of hot drinks and food to keep you warm and there is a lot of fresh produce, breads, pastries and heap of other things.

The Growers Green is a great community meeting place to catch up with friends, or make new ones. There is live music by Freo musicians, Farmer Damian’s animal touch farm, face painting, etc.

Once you’ve done that go and enjoy the Winter World on the Esplanade and do some skating, build a snow man, drink mulled wine and eat roasted nuts.

Have a fun Sunday!

PERFECT SUNDAY FOR FREO’S BEST MARKET

Posted in city of fremantle, food, growers green markets, markets, Uncategorized by freoview on June 16, 2018

 

 

The sun is shining in Fremantle and the Dockers are playing good footy. Tomorrow is going to be a stunning day, until the next winter storm arrives in the late afternoon, so a perfect morning to go and spend some hours under the trees at the Growers Green Farmers Market at Fremantle College.

The new location of the market to the east of the new school building is superb, and there are several new stalls for great organic fruit and vegetables, breads, pastries, breakfast and lunch.

One of my favourites of course is the Dutch Treacle Treat stall that cooks all the favourite snacks I love from my country of birth. If you have not tried the absolutely yummy fluffy tiny pancake pockets Poffertjes, do it tomorrow! A great snack for young and old. Linda also sells Dutch beef croquettes and bitterballen, and stroopwafels.

There is live music and Farmer Damian’s animal touch farm is a favourite with children.

I’ll see you at the GG tomorrow morning! It’s open from 8am till midday on Lefroy Road, Beaconsfield.

It’s the first Sunday of the month, so the Fremantle Growers Green Farmers Markets will be extra big with the addition of art and craft stalls today.

The Growers Green is loved for its family and dog friendly community ambience where friends catch up for a chat over nice breakfast and good coffee while browsing for fresh produce, fruit and vegetables, breads, pastries, cakes, etc.

There is live music, face painting and more. It’s the perfect and relaxed way to start a Sunday morning.

It’s open from 8am till midday at the Fremantle College, Lefroy Road, Beaconsfield.

BEN FRENCH COOKING UP A STORM IN HEAVEN

Posted in accidents, city of fremantle, community, food, Uncategorized by freoview on April 10, 2018

 

Ben 2

 

I am deeply saddened to hear that that beautiful man Ben French, co-owner of the Eat No Evil foodtruck has died.

Ben had a terrible scooter accident on Koh Samui in Thailand and was flown to Perth after a huge crowd funding effort, but sadly to no avail.

Ben was a really nice guy with always a smile on his face and foodies around town will mourn for him for a very long time.

My sympathies are with Ben’s family and friends. May he rest in peace and cook up a storm in heaven!
