I was surprised that so many people turned up at the East Street jetty for the first Fremantle food trucks between the bridges today. It will be on every Monday from 5-9 pm till the end of March.
There were only three food trucks but it had a very good community atmosphere with people sitting at the Swan River watching the sunset behind the port. Some even had a quick cooling dip and jumped off the jetty.
If it gets busier a few more seats would be nice, but there is a small park on the other side of the road so that can be utilised as well.
Food trucks will be selling yummy international food between the Fremantle bridges at the East Street jetty from today and February 15, 29 and March 14, 28 from 5-9 pm.
Perfect for a stinking hot day like today not to have to cook at home but instead cool down at the river, watch the sunset behind the port, and no washing up either.
Take your love, kids, family, friends for a treat!
The Perth SWAN RIVER COMMUNITY MARKETS will be on again tomorrow from 8 am to 1 pm so come and support all the small traders and the Fremantle organisers of the event. It is straight behind the Belltower so why not drive to South Perth and hop on the ferry to add a bit more fun.
Young Freo legend muso Carus Thompson will be performing all morning and a new interactive artwork at the site has just been revealed and will keep children and adults entertained.
There are lots of art and craft, food and other stalls, an animal touch farm, face painting and fairies, so join the fun!

East Fremantle Councillor Michael McPhail is one of those near perfect species on this planet. Not only is the very likeable, intelligent and handsome young man dedicated to his community, but he also turns out to be a great photographer.
He took this photo last night when the thunderstorm struck Fremantle and what a sensational pic it is! Thanks Michael!!
Since I am involved with the SWAN RIVER COMMUNITY MARKETS at the Perth Belltower I am going to promote it now and then here on Freo’s View in the hope to entice some of my readers to make the epic journey across the mighty Swan into the big smoke.
The markets is on again tomorrow from 8 am till 1 pm and there is also the inaugural Bonjour French festival in Langley Park, so you could combine both events and make it a day out.
It will also give you the opportunity to check out the quite spectacular Elizabeth Quay development!
Take the train from the Murdoch train station to the Esplanade or from the Fremantle train station to Perth, or for the more adventurous drive to South Perth and hop on the ferry to Barrack Street. It will be fun!
I don’t often promote things that are happening in Perth because Freo’s View is a Fremantle, blog but the new SWAN RIVER COMMUNITY MARKETS at the new Elizabeth Quay is managed by our own Freo’s Kylie Wheatley of Red Tent Events and I’ll be the supervisor, so come along and support us!
We are starting this Saturday October 17 from 8 am till 1 pm. Not ideal for me because it is Council election day, but that’s just the way it is.
Leave your car at Murdock station and hop on the train to the Esplanade station and you’ll be there, or take the train from Freo to Perth and walk 15 minutes from there to the Belltower.
And all of you from all over Perth, please do come and support the market as it is a six-week trial, so if you don’t turn up the market will not continue.
See you on Saturday! SHARE THIS POST PLEASE!
