For ethically-sourced, handcrafted Christmas gifts

Willoughby City Council's popular Fair Trade Christmas Market is back this December!

For one day only - Saturday 4 December 2021 - you have the unique opportunity to discover a wonderful range of ethically sourced, handcrafted gift ideas with an inspirational story.

Held in the convenient location of The Concourse Outdoor Space, from 10 am to 4 pm, you can peruse a curated selection of fashion accessories, toys, homewares, beauty products, jewellery, cards and lots more created by artisans from around the world. There is sure to be something for everyone on your Christmas list (and something special for yourself)!

Some of the stalls you will find at the market include:

  • Adinkra - Unique bags, baskets, decor and baby bassinets made from natural and sustainable grass, handwoven by the indigenous Frafra people of Bolgatanga in Northern Ghana.

  • AfriBeads - Recycled paper bead jewellery, hand-woven baskets and eco-products all hand-made in Uganda creating sustainable employment for women previously living in poverty.
