The new, and hopefully permanent, location of the Fremantle GROWERS GREEN FARMERS MARKET, just east of the Fremantle College new building is superb, and the best ever location for the Sunday market on Lefroy Road.

The atmosphere under all the mature trees is a truly delightful and will be much appreciated during the hot summer months as there is so much shade.

I give the Growers Green the inaugural Opinionated Loopy Award for the best market in the Perth metro area!

Well done to market owner Kylie Wheatley and good luck to all the stall holders.

For those from out of town, or new to Freo, the GG is open every Sunday from 8am till midday. Go and support our local traders!

BIG GROWERS GREEN MARKETS TODAY!

Posted in city of fremantle, community, food, growers green markets, Uncategorized by freoview on May 6, 2018

 

 

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.

A couple of arty photos I took this morning of the Fremantle Growers Green Farmers Market that has been relocated to its old spot next to the brand new modern Fremantle College building.

Redtents events owner Kylie Wheatley now is also the owner of Freo’s favourite market after the school was reluctant to continue with it.

The proximity to Lefroy Road and parking at TAFE opposite the college will no doubt see the market return to its huge popularity soon.

The market is open till midday today and every Sunday from 8am till 12 noon.

Support our local small businesses!

SUNNY FIRST MANNING PARK MARKETS

Posted in city of cockburn, community, fremantle, markets by freoview on October 22, 2016

 

The first Manning Park Market was on this Saturday from 8.30 to 12.30 and already attracted a lot of people, including the City of Cockburn Mayor Logan Howlett and his wife and the Gyuto monks of Tibet, and lots of families and dogs.

Natalie Gillespie performed and the food stalls were very popular.

It’s a stunning location not far from the lake and the playground and there is plenty of parking, so head out there next Saturday!

MANNING PARK MARKETS START SATURDAY!

manning-market

 

Not only locals know how good Manning Park is, as I and many Fremantle people visit the lovely park regularly, and now there is another reasons to go to Manning Park on Saturdays, as tomorrow the  Manning Park Farmers and Artisan Market starts with 50 hand-picked stalls by Marketeer Kylie Wheatley and her team at Red Tent Events.

The original farm and now park combines both histories to create a market that supports local shopping and small business trends as well as the social, recreational and inclusive nature of parks.

From 8.30am to 12.30pm every Saturday baristas, bakers, passionate foodies will be serving up everything from Laksa to Spelt pizza, soft shell crab baos, Indian pies to Beef Kofta Burgers, Grilled Capsicum & Beetroot Yoghurt Sauce.

Freshly picked produce, fish and bacon smoked a few hundred metres from the site, the market highlights the fact that Cockburn is still home to many market gardeners, olive oil producers, and families who have been connected to the area. Traditional makers and bakers will line up with the gluten free bread stalls, modern ottoman, fermenters and Tokyo street food.

Even a descendent of the Manning family, Elizabeth Manning will be selling the family’s olive oil. Elizabeth’s father lived at the farm in 1948 and her brother was the last baby born in the Old Homestead (now ruins).
In fact over 70% of the stallholders live locally.

Live music, kids artisan craft area’s, will entertain all the family and the market kicks off with a bang on the 22nd October with Mayor Logan Howlett opening the market and much loved performers Natalie Gillespie, Rose Parker and Dave Brewer opening the Sound Shell with a Soul Sister Saturday set.  Visiting Gyuto Monks from Nepal will do an auspicious morning blessing.
