The iconic Blak Markets return to Barangaroo Reserve on Sunday, 3 December from 10am to 4pm, offering a perfect opportunity to do some Christmas shopping, enjoy free entertainment and tuck into delicious bush tucker in a family friendly setting.
Stargazer Lawn will be transformed into a dynamic open-air market with more than 30 stalls selling unique indigenous arts, crafts and produce direct from maker to customer.
The Blak Markets are a great chance to buy locally made unique gifts this Christmas knowing that 100% of the profits go back into Aboriginal communities.
From original and affordable aboriginal artworks to handmade beauty products, handicrafts to one-of-a-kind homewares and jewellery, there are gifts for all ages.
Blak Markets are thrilled to have 3 remote Aboriginal art centres from outback Australia bringing the very best and latest fine artwork to their December market.
Bush tucker is an integral part of the Blak Market experience and this market is no exception, offering 3 live cooking demonstrations with:
Mark Olive (aka the Black Olive) Indigenous Australian celebrity chef and Bundjulung man who has introduced many to indigenous cuisine through his TV series
Jody Orcher, Ularai Barkandji woman, Aboriginal Education Coordinator at Royal Botanic Garden Sydney and champion of indigenous ingredients.
NICI apprentices showcasing their culinary skills (National Indigenous Culinary Institute (NICI) program places budding indigenous apprentices in the kitchens of some of Australia’s top restaurants including Rockpook, Aria, Icebergs Dining Rooms and Catalina)
The Blak Markets are organised by First Hand Solutions and hosted by Barangaroo. First Hand Solutions is an Aboriginal charity providing cultural reconnection programs for urban Aboriginal young people and profits from the Blak Markets are invested into these programs.
Barangaroo Reserve is easily accessible by bus, ferry or train. Car parking is also available under Barangaroo Reserve via the entry at Towns Place ($12 flat rate).
