Fremantle Markets, Fremantle

Equally appealing to both tourists and locals, Fremantle Markets remains one of the finest shopping destinations in Western Australia. Bringing together over a century of history and heritage, the markets now host over 150 stalls run by craftspeople, vegetable growers, food producers, fashion designers, and merchants. Look for the fresh produce section to stock up on tasty treats and snacks, or head straight for the food court to have your fill of globally popular street specialties.Snoop around Fremantle Markets to buy indigenous souvenirs like boomerangs and didgeridoos. Explore the 150 vibrant shops and discover why the market was listed in the Register of Heritage Places. Built in 1897, the market is lined with small shops selling crafts in the indoor hall and fresh produce in outdoor yard. Walk past street performers and enter the market through the ornate stone arches. The rough washed limestone of the walls and the high iron roof add to the charm. A walk at the market is a good way to spend a rainy day since it is covered. Try the kangaroo jerky. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Fremantle holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Fremantle Markets and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • A bit quieter on a Friday to the weekend. A great mix of market wares, product demonstrations and food stalls for kids and adults. Just outside the market is also the little shanghi food court of you like authentic Asian food and a place to sit and eat. A quick tip - try the honey cake if you have a sweet tooth, it's worth it! We also bought a variety of fudge.
  • Lots of variety at these markets. Lots of unique and interesting wares if looking for something different. Good for a browse. Loved the market produce- cheap and high quality. Plenty of treats for the sweet tooth. Highly recommended to visit if you are passing through Fremantle.
  • A rather small market compared to the other big cities in Australia but it's still interesting. Shops and eating places mixed together. The fresh vegetable & fruit section separated by itself. A good activity for weekend.
  • I love the Fremantle markets. There's so many different types of things there you can buy including food, souvenirs, body soap and more! It's a great place for tourists to visit. I visited from Malaysia and went to the Fremantle markets. I tried the Honey Cake, Chocolate fudge and bought some fruits. I left feeling very satisfied. The downside is that it's hot, crowded and has dirty toilets. Other than that, great place to visit!
  • We went on a Saturday morning to avoid crowds as Sundays tend to be busier. Free parking is non existent, you do get the 1st free at the Parry St carpark which has only a small number of bays and is always full. Parking is atrocious, $7 for 1.5hours! The market itself has great atmosphere, good selection of arts/crafts/hand made items/ fruit/veg /coffee/cakes/food stalls etc, there was a small animal farm, market is under cover and prices are reasonable.
