How long has it been since you’ve wandered through the Fremantle Markets? For us, it had been a while. When we were contacted by a few new food stalls in the markets that promised mouth watering treats, we had to pay a visit as soon as possible. From banh mi thit to tacos to doughnuts to cheese, you should go armed with your appetite and a carry bag. Meet some of the stallholders…
Two pals James Hood and Nicholas Bent have opened this banh mi stall, where they make traditional, Vietnamese rolls made to order. Choose from crispy pork, BBQ pork, lemongrass beef, grilled chicken or katsu chicken, which all come laden with the typical carrot pickle, mayo, coriander, cucumber and chilli inside a fresh bun that’s come direct from a local, Vietnamese baker. Since they’re made fresh in front of you, it’s possible to hold any ingredients you don’t like. Deeeeelicious.

It’s hard to miss Eat Street, with their large paella pans smack in the middle of The Yard, and the wonderful smells that waft out from them. As well as their different variations of paella (with seafood, chicken and vegetarian options) they serve a mean kimchi and beef bun, which makes a perfect little snack to stop your tummy from rumbling while doing your weekly veggie shop.
Boy do we love a good taco. The latest offering on the ever expanding Mexican food scene in Perth is this great little stall. Choose your filling – steak, pork, fish or black bean – and a salsa, and away you go. There are some other plates on offer too, if you’re taco-ed out already, but we just can’t get enough. Quick, fresh and ever so tasty.
They might not be new, but there’s a reason these stalls have stuck around.
Darkstar Coffee is a local business based in Freo, and a darn good one at that. We’ve been singing their praises for a long time and even had one of the owners Tim Fraser featured on our blog in the very early days. Grab a bag of beans to take home and enjoy their flavours all week long.
Levi’s Doughnuts are a bit addictive. They dough is made fresh daily from organic ingredients. Whether you choose plain, chocolate filled or blackberry filled, you will quickly become addicted too.
The Mousetrap is the go to place for cheese. They source their cheeses from throughout the world, have a changing selection, and cut to order.
