If you’ve got things you would like to sell the Freo Farmers Market is the go this Sunday January 26, with a FLEA MARKET  being added to the weekly market.

The FFM is very popular, so a very good way to get people to see what you have to offer.

It is on from 8-12am at Fremantle College at Lefroy Road, Beaconsfield.

FREMANTLE MARKETS NEED DISABLED TOILET

 

fremantle-markets

 

Here is another challenge for Fremantle Council at the start of the new decade.

Fremantle Markets traders have been telling me that there are many disappointed visitors when they realise there is no disabled toilet in one of Freo’s most popular weekend destinations, that attracts some two-hundred-thousand people each years.

The next public toilets are the portaloos at Kings Square, and they can be a challenge for users as they are often very dirty when vagrants leave their trash there, and the cleaners just can’t be there all the time.

Public toilets, or the lack thereof, are a concern in Fremantle and Council needs to start addressing that with priority!

P.S. Stuart who runs Freo T-Shirts at the markets posted on Facebook: :There actually is. It’s located in the toilet area in the main hall. Next to Megabes.”

If market traders and disabled people don’t know than maybe some more prominent signs are required and letting all the stallholders know.

Thanks, Stuart!

The first of the  SUNSET SOUTH BEACH MARKETS starts today and will run every Saturday night, weather permitting, till mid April.

The food market offers some 25 stalls with food from all over the world, live music, a bar, great sunsets, and a very relaxed community ambience.

My friend Linda will be there with her TREACLE TREAT stall selling Dutch flavourites, as she calls it, so try the delicious tiny fluffy poffertjes pancakes. Your kids will love you forever! YUM!!!!!!!!

The market is open from 5-9pm and it should be a nice warm night. Hop on the CAT bus to get there!

The fantastic FREO LONG TABLE dinner event on November 28  is only two weeks away and will also feature a Christmas Market in Henry Street, organised by the Moore&Moore cafe.

The Freo West End Christmas will be a feast for the senses to accompany the Fremantle Long Table Dinner.

Working in partnership with St Pat’s and The National Hotel, M&M invites the community to explore a range of homemade gifts and goodies on offer at more than 40 market stalls; grab a bite to eat from one of many food sellers and enjoy live entertainment throughout the evening.

Visitors will love the visually spectacular roaming performances from Circus WA and WASAMBA – and Freo favourites the Witchy Djypsies will deliver another fantastic set of their signature gypsy jazz tunes.

Any profits made on the night will go directly to St Pat’s, to ensure they can continue to provide services for people who are homeless and disadvantaged in Fremantle and across south-west metro.

Stallholders include Paperbird; Dingo Sauce; Inkling Art Space; Little Seed Handmade Jewellery; Kath Wrote a Picture; High Spirits Distillery; Luke’s Pure Raw Honey; The Natural Food Emporium; Simply Sustainable Market Co; Excuse my French; Pearls and Diamonds by Dana; Pure Relaxation; Mamatree and many, many more.

I was a tourist in my own town today and took these photos of Fremantle during a two hour walk.

We are blessed to live in such a gorgeous city!

GENUINE ABORIGINAL ART AT TRUE BLUE MARKETS

Posted in aboriginal, art, city of fremantle, markets, shopping, tourism, Uncategorized by freoview on August 16, 2019

 

 

The new Fremantle TRUE BLUE MARKETS has opened opposite the Fremantle Markets in the Henderson Street mall, so go and have a browse.

Brian and Annette Kent are well known faces in Fremantle and the Aboriginal art on offer is genuine and painted by local artists, and not from sweat shops in Indonesia or China.

It is very important when we send tourists to the  new markets to know that they support our local Aboriginal artists, so promote them and spread the word!

NEW AUSSIE MARKETS FOR FREMANTLE

Posted in city of fremantle, markets, retail, shopping, Uncategorized by freoview on August 9, 2019

 

Markets

 

I noticed the signs for the all new TRUE BLUE MARKETS this morning where the Pine Warehouse opposite the Fremantle Mrkets used to be.

It will be good to see that retail space activated again. This from the website:

True Blue Australia is one of Australia’s largest manufacturers of postcards, greeting cards and locally produced souvenirs. Products featuring photographs by Annette Kent are produced for almost every town in Australia. True Blue also has their own kilns to produce glass and clay jewellery, platters, art glass and awards.

Many Aboriginal Artists from the Perth metropolitan area and regional WA produce paintings, artefacts, jewellery and souvenirs at their communities and the True Blue workshop.
