Fremantle Markets has a long and fascinating history. The first visitors to the Fremantle Market Hall would have arrived by horse and cart, conjuring a romantic historical image. Sir John Forrest, the Premier of Western Australia, laid the foundation stone for the market on 6 November, 1897, with construction finishing in 1902 at a cost of £8268. The building functioned as a wholesale food and produce market until the 1950s, reflecting the eclectic and multicultural origins of the many migrants who came to the Port City of Fremantle. Today, it still reflects our multicultural and migrant history, and is widely recognised as a leading local and tourist attraction in Western Australia with over 150 stalls, each one as unique as the next. Stepping inside the Fremantle Markets is encountering over a hundred years of vibrant culture and heritage.
