western farmers’ market – fremantle
Finally the Western Farmers’ Market has reopened!
Hopefully the market has found a permanent home. Located at Palmyra Primary, the market is now more family friendly than ever – parking is a lot easier plus there is a huge space for the Dogs’ Bar.
Banjo burger, yum
There’s a wonderful burger stand – Banjo Burgers – selling buns filled with crispy egg, spinach and bacon, with globs of glorious chutney. Our burger had the beetroot chutney which sent scarlet streams down our arms but was well worth the mess. The Fiori cart’s coffee was aromatic as always. There’s no better way to start Sundays than with a great coffee and brekkie burger.
Incidentally the chutney inside the burger comes from a stall around the corner. Pick up a jar or two and also your weekly eggs – farm fresh, free range eggs at $4 a dozen (cheap!).
The undercover area houses the baked goodies – cupcakes, irish bread and a stall overflowing with bread. The breads are fabulous – organic, spelt, wholemeal, sourdough – you name it, the have it. There’s organic pastries which takes some of the guilt out of the butter laden, flakey danishes… We tried the white organic spelt loaf and besides being better for our bodies, it was pleasantly different – nuttier, for lack of a better word. Try it.
Organic jam donut – as healthy as a donut can be!
Ultra fresh spinach, squeaky zucchini and bags of freshly dug potatoes are cheap and bountiful at the farmers’ stalls. All the fresh produce is first class – there’s no sacrificing quality for price at farmers’ markets as you are buying from the farmer direct.
During the market’s absence, I think a number of stallholders have moved to other markets, hence the market is now somewhat smaller. But I may have come on a day where some stallholders are off rotating their wares elsewhere. Still, there’s quite a range of fresh fruit and veggies, with fresh blooms for the table.
