Our sixth birthday celebrations for the Blak Markets will kick off this Sunday March 8 on Bare Island 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 and free weaving sessions with artist 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 non-alchoholic draft beers infused with native plant flavours from Aboriginal businesses in the bushfood industry.

The Blak Markets are held inside the Bare Island Fort so you can shop undercover in the event of rain.

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.
