Blak Markets back live on December 5

Blak Markets is back live on Bare Island on Sunday December 5, 2021, kicking off at 10am and running through until 3pm.

CEO, Peter Cooley, said, “We had a great re-opening market and our stallholders are busy preparing for a great Christmas market of their beautiful authentic products.”

This Blak Markets features Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander stallholders selling arts, crafts and bushfoods – including native plants, award-winning jewellery and pure silk scarves. One hundred per cent of the profits go back into Aboriginal communities.

The Blak Markets will kick off with a Welcome to Country and performances by Bidjigal elder and singer Vic Simms and traditional Aboriginal cultural group Ngambaa Dhalaay.

The Blak Markets are conducted in partnership with Randwick City Council, held in Kamay-Botany Bay National Park (part of the traditional land of the Gweagal and Kameygal Aboriginal people), and supported by Suncorp.

Attendees will be required to sign in with the event QR code and maintain social distance.

All proceeds raised go towards employing local Indigenous youth.
