Blak Markets celebrates its sixth birthday this Sunday
Blak Markets on Bare Island Sunday March 8 - 9:30am - 3:00pm
Our Blak Markets will kick off the year back on Bare Island on Sunday March 8 with Aboriginal stallholders selling their arts and crafts with everything from native plants to award winning jewelry to silk scarves featuring Aboriginal design.
As always there's a wonderful Festival line up of both contemporary and cultural performances - this market featuring cultural dance performances by Djiriba Waagur, Singing Performance by Charlie Trindall and weaving workshop for kids and adults with Nadeena Dixon
The Blak Markets are a great chance to buy authentic unique gifts knowing that 100% of the profits go back into Aboriginal communities and this market we also have some great new bushfood drink products to sell such as Boab Nut Iced Tea and non-alchoholic draft beers infused with native plant flavours from Aboriginal businesses in the bushfood industry.
The Blak Markets takes place at Bare Island within the Kamay-Botany Bay National Park with the support of the NSW Parks and Wildlife Service and Randwick City Council.
