Fremantle Markets, Fremantle

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.

  • Nothing to flash about these markets. Sell basically gifts, toys and foods. The building itself was interesting and the streets around were worth a walk.  more »
  • Great potential but there were lots of empty stalls. The stalls that were there were nearly all focusing on International visitors. In and out within minutes.  more »
  • The market is held on Fridays and Saturdays only. Check out times vary by day of the week. Fremantle itself is increasingly crowded in this market, but not so crowded because there! Gadgets and souvenirs, of course plentiful fruits and vegetables. Mango packed in the Pack is $ 5 makes up looked very delicious. Other stores, such as ice cream, drinks, Donuts, which was delicious. If you go to the Perth come this market.

  • Great market to walk through. It's covered but also open-air so it can get quite hot inside but lots of cool items and a great "food court" and variety of fruit stands. Lots of coffee as well and juices available for sale. Wish we could of spent more time here. Would definitely visit again
  • Lively, worthwhile general market with atmosphere in the redoubtable Fremantle. Do not go past the Turkish water börek without tasting this Turkish delicacy. Special blend tea in Istanbul cups is complimentary. Outside that best fruit and veg offerings in the vicinity at reasonable prices. Gets a bit congested on the weekends so start early. A day out in its own right.
  • As one of the must do activities in Fremantle, it really does live up to its hype. A large scale market comprising of a huge array of sellers with a wide range of goods. There are dedicated food areas, gifts and take out food. The markets are renowned for being a launch location of many famous West Australian brands. The venue can get quite packed and it gets hot and sticky inside quite fast, but it's good fun and the vendors are entertaining. It's worth noting that towards the end of the day the food market begins to reduce the cost of their goods in an attempt to flog the remainder, you may well find a bargain.
  • If you like bumping shoulder to shoulder with tonnes of other people that are all shuffling around window shopping for gifts and nick knacks that nobody needs, then this is the place for you! The best part about the markets is seeing it from the outside. But to be fair, I personally dislike markets. Really, there is a fair selection of stuff in here, friendly merchants that probably won’t rip you off. And some decent food stalls too. So if that’s your thing, go nuts! Enjoy! Most people probably do. My recommendation, however, is to tell your family to go and enjoy the markets for a few hours and then meet you at the Sail and Anchor next door when they are done. By then, you’ll be three pints in and in a much happier mood than they will be.
  • Nice markets. A good cross section of food shops and crafty and arty stalls. I really liked how it wasnt just cheap imports or souvenirs but had real artisans.
