Fremantle Market

Posted July 18th, 2011 in Perth WA 2 Comments »

It was another beautiful weekend.  Perth’s winter sometimes gets quite warm during the day, almost like spring!

On sunny Sunday we headed to Fremantle market. Some people were wearing halve sleeves.
I wanted to go to Target, but first we went to the Fremantle market to have a browse.  The usual zakka shop “A Maize Homeware” , then went inside to walk around.

From ramen noodle to Turkish sweets, there are always something you can munch on at this market. Munch on fresh fruits, munch on pastries, munch on donut, etc etc.

We felt little hungry, so queued at the hotdog stall to get some Bratwurst hot dogs.  D was thinking to go to Jus Burger which is located in front of market, but I insisted that one hotdog would be enough for a snack.

The soup from the stall Soul Food looked good too.

Then I found this place selling hand made Aboriginal collectibles True Blue products.  When we were looking around, a shop staff taught me each painting on those plates has meaning.  She picked one handcrafted wooden bowl, and told me that the painting on this bowl means “love and friendship”. Other ones have other meaning, like “travel and coming home” and “family”.

I bought the “love and friendship” for my friend, and “3 families” for us.  It was fun looking for items while thinking about the meaning of its illustration.

The smell of body spray “Kakadu plum and Macadamia nuts” sold there was lovely, so I bought it too. 🙂

We didn’t go to Target in the end and headed home.  It was a good day. 🙂

    Hi Ume
    Don’t you love the markets? I can’t wait to go there and buy souvenirs to take to my host family and friends when we go to Japan 🙂 Do you think those wooden bowls would be good? I think they look very beautiful.

    Yes, I think they make great souvenirs. 🙂 They are Australian, look cute for dining table or just as an ornament, and have meaning on each painting.
    I love going to market because I can find something very unique and new sometimes 😀
