Exploring Freemantle Market in Perth

It’s always lovely to explore markets with fresh produce and other freshly made snacks. Taking half a day to explore the markets was well worth the effort. There’s a direct train from the city. Just an half hour train ride from Perth’s Central Station.

Think you just have to walk about 8 minutes (I’m a slow walker) to reach the market.

There are buskers and loads of tempting cafes along the way to the market itself.

It was a relief to escape from the blazing sun as we entered the enclosed market.

Didn’t take a good picture but the mudcake was really fudge filled scrumptiousness.

The fresh orange juice was lovely and with the friendliest proprietors who entertained with some juggling.

I didn’t check the prices but I think flowers here are not as expensive as they are in Singapore. Perth food prices are pretty steep though around the time we were there, although the currency is on par. I learnt that it’s due to the earlier mining and property boom in Perth and the corresponding high labour costs.
