The Fremantle Market

February 22, 2008

On February 22, 2008, Linda and I went to the Fremantle Market, open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays only.

Fremantle was the original settlement at the mouth of the Swan River, but the British colonists soon discovered that its sandy soil could not be farmed and moved up river to Perth, leaving Fremantle to be its port, a role it still plays for all of booming Western Australia. It is surrounded by immense docking, industrial and refining facilities. It has an outstanding Maritime Museum.

Of interest to us foodies, of course, is the trawler fishing fleet which specializes in deep sea prawn fishing, but also brings in a variety of fish from this east end of the Indian Ocean.

Here is the old sign over the main entrance.

The fish market has a separate entrance.
