Something to take your fancy.....?

Established in 1897 the Fremantle, or Freo Markets (Freo Markets) are a great place to have a wander. The entrance above leads into 'The Shed' an area filled with fresh fruit and veg and if you saw yesterdays post many more exotic and interesting foodstuffs, like these 'Coffin Bay' oysters, slightly offputting name, but I'm sure delicious.....
The entrance from the other side leads into The Hall where you will find clothes, jewellery, candles, music and pretty much every kind of thing you'd expect to see at a big market, I'm almost 100% sure that no one would leave these markets without finding something to pique their interest.....!

  3. This looks very much like our so-called Flea Markets. I'd spend most of the time amidst the fruits and veggies!

  4. Freemantle was in a tv show last night. I have not been there. I looked like a great pedestrian friendly town.

  5. Some blogs you visit because the bloggers are sweet and get few visits.

    Some you visit because they are popular and you can meet new friends.

    Some like this one, are just places I WANT to come and hang. You cool, Sis-

  6. I'd definitely take a look at this market. It reminds me a lot of the St Lawrence Market here. It's indoors but with lots of stuff to see. You got some nice shots too!

  7. Looks like a great place to do some shopping, but it looks like you could get lost if you're not careful.

  10. Unless, of course, they actually kill you. The price alone might make me swoon.

  12. Thanks for the comments.

    I could probably spend a whole entire day at that market. It reminds me of the St. Lawrence Market in Toronto. So much to take in with all the different type of aromas. Looks like you had a good time there.

    Talk soon.

  14. Whenever we go to a new city we usually make a trip to the fruit and vegetable market. If we ever get to Perth we must make a point of visiting this wonderful spot.

  23. Very like the Reading Market in Philly and Cincinnati's Findlay Market. Oh, last nite I told ToonMan about the ostrich eggs and he said $5.99 for a dozen jumbo or $8 for one clearly the ostrich egg is a better deal!
