Growers Green was created to provide a genuine alternative to the supermarket shopping experience. It’s a place where you can meet and talk directly to the people who are growing and making your food! Our stall holders are passionate about their produce. Fresh, local and grower-direct fruit and veg is available each week, along with bread, organic beef, fish, local honey, eggs and olive oil, baked goods, herbs, jams, plants, fresh flowers, organic dog food and more. The first Sunday of every month is ‘Big Market‘ day at Growers Green, with stalls selling vintage, handmade and pre-loved clothing, books, jewellery, craft, gifts and accessories.

The markets are run by the South Fremantle Senior High School P&C. As well as providing an outlet for growers and makers, and a fun, shared shopping experience for the community, much-needed funds are raised to improve student amenities at the school. The market also supports the school’s multi-award winning sustainability programs. Funds go towards the Green Room used for growing veges for planting out in the school’s permaculture kitchen garden and raising native seedlings for bush regeneration projects. Over the past six years SFSHS students have planted over 40,000 trees throughout the wheatbelt and across WA. SFSHS has it’s own dedicated Carbon Neutral Officer and student run Green Action Team and in 2011 became the first accredited carbon neutral school in Australia.
