Fremantle Markets – A great place to go for food and shopping on the weekend

Fremantle Markets Building

You are in Fremantle on a weekend? Don’t miss the Fremantle Markets

Fremantle is a great city to spend some days anytime of the year. There are great cafes, you can go to the beach and on the weekend the Fremantle Markets open the doors.

We just spent a couple of hours at the Fremantle Markets and loved the atmosphere. The hustle and bustle at the market stalls, all the different products and food that is displayed is what we like here. It’s a great experience for locals and tourists alike.

Huge selection of local products like fruits and vegetables.

Did you know that the Fremantle Market Hall first opened in 1898? That time people arrived by horse and cart. Until the 1950’s it was a wholesale food and produce market.

A complete restoration of the building happened in 1975. It is since then officially registered as a Heritage places. So, if you are in the area a visit at the Fremantle Markets is definitely worth a visit. Not only for the nice and historic building but also to see the different market stalls, the food and local products.

Today, there are about 150 stalls at the Fremantle Markets. We totally like the hectic market atmosphere.

  1. That market looks absolutely wonderful! When I was growing up, I used to help my Dad sell his peaches at the Ontario Food Terminal just 10 minutes west of downtown Toronto. That market is a traditional wholesale market, so mainly business owners come to source produce directly from Ontario farmers. Occasionally, you will have regular folks sourcing produce here, as well, so it will always be my favourite market based on sentimental reasons.

    • Hi Ray

      Thanks for your message and your tip. Sounds like a great market too. We’ll put the Ontario Food Terminal on our list to visit when in Canada. We hope to visit Canada in a few years too.

      Cheers,
