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.

  • The iconic Fremantle Markets is a must do activity for any tourist and is always popular with the locals. It has a great atmosphere, you can find an eclectic mix of arts & crafts, a massive range of fresh fruit and vegetables, variety items and amazing food stalls. There’s some great bargains on Sunday afternoon when the fruiterers sell out their produce. Highly recommended 👍
  • Undergoing a personality upgrade. Still, its bumpy-bumpy busy with yummy food and produce market. Be warned: there exists one fresh produce store that accepts cash only. Fair place to buy souvenirs - just make sure you've got plenty of money because items are expensive. Good part is that the buskers on the outside keep it alive or the "play it yourself" piano inside.
  • I was quite amazed how this place changed over the years. Been here many years back and though it is very much different than before, it has never lose its charm. The great variety of Australian produce available and the warm friendly people. It is simply amazing!
  • Quaint little place that you can enjoy irrespective of the weather. When it is rainy or cold, stroll around the covered market place, window shopping or buying the ethnic items on display by the friendly shop keepers or just taste the menu of the eateries. When the weather clears, you can soak in the sun at the numerous outdoor cafes surrounding the market area while watching street performers putting up their different acts.
  • Is about 30 minutes drive from CBD that is, Perth central business district to Fremantle markets. One thing you must be aware that Fremantle markets do not open everyday and their opening hours too! Open only on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 9.00am - 6.00pm generally and offer you the full range from fresh local produce, organic goods, market bar, to indigenous products with your favorite eatery stalls in every corner. Not forgetting gallery and souvenir shops too to fill up your quest!!! Give it a go and ransack every parts of Fremantle market with my thumb up. A worth while visit with family or friends if you have nothing to loose. Cheers -:) -:)
