Great news as we head into Phase 4, we’ve finally got word on the reopening date for the iconic Fremantle Markets.

Mark it in your diaries – Friday, July 10.

Traders within the markets are still getting themselves sorted, so they’ll be operating on reduced hours:

Friday to Sunday 9am-6pm, while the Yard will be open from 8am.

These hours will be reviewed monthly.

It follows the news that operators and the landlord – the City of Fremantle – are reportedly about to enter negotiations over $1.7 million of works and early longer-term security for the markets.

The Fremantle council recently caught up and voted to get much-needed repairs on the markets done – subject to a new lease being signed.


The current 18-year lease is set to wrap in 2026.

Fremantle Markets chief executive Natasha Atkinson said the council’s decision was one of “absolute relief.”
