There will be plenty in store for Mums at our Mother’s day celebrations at the iconic Blak Markets at Bare Island La Perouse Sunday, May 12 2019 from 9:30am to 3pm.

There will be Arts and Craft workshops for mothers to enjoy while their children can do an interactive storytelling session with Larry Brandy Storytellers.

This market will also feature a wonderful array of Native plants including bushfoods and bush-herbs, being developed by Indigigrow, the other social enterprise arm of the charity who runs the Blak Markets.

The Blak Markets are a great chance to buy authentic unique gifts knowing that 100% of the profits go back into Aboriginal communities. The Blak Markets feature authentic, original and affordable Aboriginal artworks, beauty products and one-of-a-kind homewares and jewellery as well as Indigenous inspired food and refreshments.

Along with a cultural dance performance, Aboriginal singer Charlie Trindall will be singing on the day, along with a interactive session for the kids with Larry Brandy Storytellers.

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.
