An inventive market elevating Indigenous stallholders nestled in a national park

Set on the picturesque point of La Perouse, Blak Markets returns to Sydney in 2020. 

Spend a day out by the water wandering through market stalls by Indigenous stallholders spruiking a range of locally made arts, crafts and food. When you're feeling like putting your feet up, test out the range of bushfood on offer with drinks like boab nut iced tea, or non-alcoholic craft beer infused with native plant essences from Sobah Badha Gali beers. 100 per cent of the profits go back into Aboriginal communities.

It's a great place to teach the kids about Indigenous culture, with a smoking ceremony in the morning as well as weaving and art workshops. Rounding out the afternoon are performances by musical standouts Djiriba Waagura and Charlie Trindall

The Blak Markets take place at Bare Island within the Kamay-Botany Bay National Park, which is usually only open for tours. The first one kicks off on Sunday, March 8 and the next won't be until Sunday, May 3. The markets are open from 9.30am to 3pm.
