Western Australia's most famous market complex, Fremantle Markets has a history dating back to 1897, the year when the Freemantle Market hall was built and opened to the public. The building still stands and serves the same purpose for which it was built, which is quite amazing! In the meantime, the market has enlarged around this original market hall and currently houses more than 150 stalls.
The market is especially famous for its collection of handicrafts shops that together make for a brilliant display of local artistic talent. You can choose interesting souvenirs in the form of decorative homewares or some other arty pieces that are distinctly different from any generic gift.
Also, the kids will also love their time at the Freemantle Market's Wildlife Zoo or meeting the Market fairies. The Market and its surroundings are also the site for many special events in the city of Perth.
