The Fremantle Growers Green Farmers Market is back after a well-deserved NY’s break.

So head for the Fremantle College on Lefroy Road this Sunday between 8am and noon for fresh fruit&vegetables, organic produce, breads, pastries, etc.

There are also food stalls for yummy breakfast or take-away for lunch, great coffee, Farmer Damian’s animal touch farm for the kids, live music, face painting, and that unique very Freo community ambience.

VERY FREO STORE HOUSE GROCERIES

Posted in city of fremantle, food, Uncategorized by freoview on December 3, 2018

The new The Store House groceries shop in South Fremantle is arguable the most VERY FREO new shop in our city.

The shop is next to the Post Office and opposite ALDI at the South Fremantle shopping centre on the corner of Douro and Hampton roads, so make sure to check it out!

This is a bright and clean modern old-fashion grocery shop, as I know it from my youth, where most things are available in bulk and you just put a scoop of what you want in a paper bag or self-brought container.

Owners Audrey Ting and Josie Black are there to offer a personal service with a smile and the variety of goods they offer is huge; laundry, household, personal, sauces, oil, seeds, beans, vinegar, oats, wheats, flour, spices, rice, pasta, nuts, raw honey, etc.etc.

There is even a peanut butter machine that presses peanuts into butter and into a jar. The kids will love watching that one!

FROM THE FREMANTLE FPOL COMMITTEE

Posted in city of fremantle, city planning, community, local government, politics, Uncategorized by freoview on November 15, 2018

 

The needed stabilisation of the North Bank foreshore in North Fremantle created the longest debate of the evening at the Fremantle Council FPOL Committee on Wednesday evening.

Questions were asked why the City of Fremantle should spend money on it when clearly the onus had been on the developers at the time, who went into receivership, to build a seawall to protect the residential properties.

Councillors also made it clear that the City would not be able to spend approximately $ 600,000 on this so it was a long way away from the issues being resolved.

Staff were asked why the elected members had not received more information, as they had requested some months ago when the item came before the committee, so the item was deferred and will come back to council in about three months.

Another long debate was about the implementation of a Sustainable Events Policy, which would demand that plastic water bottles, straws, balloons, styrofoam, polystyrene, etc. would no longer been used at Fremantle events.

The High Street/Stirling Highway project will need EPA approval so that will change things a little but the City is still required to remove FERN from Montreal Street and hand over the site to Main Road by the start of February next year.

The preferred builder for the Fremantle Park sports and community home was approved, as were the well overdue two zebra crossings on Marine Terrace, and the extension of the lease for the South Beach kiosk.

Also approved was that Cleanaway will be responsible for the collection of the new FOGO green organic waste collection.

An offer has been made for the sale of 12 Holdsworth Street, but that was a confidential item, so I had to leave the chambers. This is the building where the Fremantle Dental Clinic is in, which offers a great service to those on pension, concession and health cards, who can otherwise not afford to go to a dentist, so the city should lobby State Government that the dental clinic will remain in Fremantle as it is needed here!

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.

SUPERB NEW LOCATION FOR GROWERS GREEN MARKETS

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!

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.

ARTY GROWERS GREEN MARKETS

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!
