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.
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.
You need a break from the hustle and bustle? Why not having a cappuccino at the stall of Dark Star? They serve delicious coffee. By the way, do you want to know how to make great coffee? Then check this out: Barista Course in Fremantle
You are getting hungry? There are plenty of options. From the German Bratwurst to Paella at Eat Street you find nearly everything at the Fremantle Markets.
And there is salami, delicious cheese, cupcakes and… and… and. It’s hard to resist not buying everything.
