There are two great local farmers markets on this long WA DAY long weekend, so go and buy some great fresh produce, network with your community, drink yummie coffee and eat delicious food while listening to live music.
This Saturday the COOBY FARMERS MARKET is on from 9am-2pm at the Len Packham Reserve on Waverley Road Coolbellup, and on Sunday the traditional first Sunday of the month HUGE Fremantle GROWERS GREEN MARKETS are on from 8am to noon at the South Fremantle Senior High School at Lefroy Road. There is art and craft, bread, pastries, meat, fish, food stalls forgreat breakfast, facepainting, music, and it is a lot of fun.
Local markets give one a great sense of belonging to one’s community and are a great way of catching up with friends and neighbours in a relaxed outdoor atmosphere, so take advantage of them.
The Fremantle Markets have had good changes over the last few years, with good bakeries, fantastic coffee, a good meat stall and many new others. While you’re shopping around for fresh fruit and veggies, why not check out what’s been happening in the yard? On Friday night Market Feast in the yard has been a huge success, and will continue until the end of August – don’t forget to BYO your wine!
New stalls have opened this month, including Belgian Gourmet, selling mouth-watering Belgian waffles, chocolates and coffee, and the stunning Matthew Landers Florist Kiosk, filled with lush blooms and a spectacular array of farm fresh cut flowers, plants, glassware and gifts.
And if you are into sausages, why not do a snagger tasting and see if you like the German Bratwurst or the French Gourmet hot dogs better. The stalls are operating not far from one another so buy one each. Viva la France and Deutschland ueber alles!
The GROWERS GREEN MARKET at the South Fremantle Senior High School celebrated its first birthday today. Well done ladies!!
