Blak Markets at Barangaroo Reserve

3 Dec 2017

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 iconic Blak Markets returns to Barangaroo Reserve on Sunday, 3 December offering a perfect opportunity to do some Christmas shopping, enjoy free entertainment and tuck into some 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 and crafts.

Blak Markets is a great chance to buy locally made unique gifts this Christmas. From original and affordable aboriginal artworks to handmade beauty products, one-of-a-kind home wares, handicrafts and jewellery, there are gifts for all ages.

Blak Markets is thrilled to have a number of remote Aboriginal art centres from outback Australia bringing the very best and latest fine artwork to their December market, including Rukaji Designs/Mangkaja Arts, Girringun Aboriginal Art Centre, Bula’bula Arts Aboriginal Corporation, Warnayaka Art and Injalak Art.

Bush tucker is an integral part of the Blak Market experience and this market is no exception, offering live cooking demonstrations with:

Mark Olive (aka the Black Olive) a celebrity chef and Bundjulung man who has introduced many to Indigenous cuisine through his TV series;

Jody Orcher, a Ularai Barkandji woman and champion of Indigenous ingredients and the National Indigenous Culinary Institute which has produced budding Indigenous apprentices into the kitchens of some of Australia’s top restaurants including Icebergs Dining Rooms.

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).
