This proud social enterprise is where you'll find Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists and craftspeople who sell their wares and tell their stories.

This is a great opportunity to buy that authentic, unique gift, knowing that its authenticity is guaranteed, and 100% of the profits goes towards social change in Aboriginal communities across Australia. If you absolutely can't make it to the market to see and feel in person, you can also buy online, any time of the day. An online store expands the opportunities for Indigenous people and ensures you can get the product all year round, and not just when the market is run.

At the market you'll find authentic, original and affordable Aboriginal artworks, beauty products one-of-a-kind homewares and jewellery. Check the discussion page of the event page on Facebook for more details of stallholders that are going to be there. The shellworkers of La Perouse, Auntie Esme Timbery and Marilyn Russell will also be running a shell workshop and selling their work. BOOK a space at the workshop for $40. There'll be ceremonies and an acoustic sound stage and beautiful bush tucker foods. Get involved in a mini-festival of song, dance and food. Immerse yourself in Aboriginal culture and soak up the rugged beauty of the historic island.

Along with cultural dance performances, Aboriginal singer/songwriter, Maddi Lyn who has a deep passion for Country Music will be singing on the day. You can also join Wiradjuri man Larry Brandy as he shares his culture with people of all ages. Children become hunters, kangaroos and emus as they learn how Aboriginal people hunted and found food in traditional times. Larry uses real tools and artefacts to involve families and children in his performance. As you can see there's a full market day of enjoyment to be had. Be sure to put all the dates down in your diary to not miss any of the markets and a chance to do good at the same time by helping with the fundraising efforts.
