Blue Sky Markets

There are so many skilled individuals who make a community tick – from the farmers who grow the produce to fill our plates to the craftspeople who fashion the clothing we wear each day. At Blue Sky Markets, we create bustling weekly markets that bring the community together in a fun and vibrant setting.

As well as bringing markets to life each week, the team at Blue Sky Markets can also assist with the planning of other events that engage locals and support small businesses.

We are passionate about creating events that foster a sense of pride within the local community – stop by one of our regular markets to discover for yourself the richness of your local neighbourhood. 

 


Bondi Farmers Market goes Plastic Bag Free as of 17 October 2015  (Our Sunday Market is next!)

Yep we've done it. No plastic bags at Bondi Farmers on Saturday.

We've worked with each stallholder to work out how they can run a stall with only biodegradable packaging (Not the degradable plastic stuff either).

We've started a Bag Share Box so people can drop off and pick up bags to encourage multi use.

We've encouraged stallholders to charge a 5 cents - 15 cents for a  biodegradable bag to make people think twice before asking for uneccesary bags and packaging.

And the Bondi Beach Public School Kids are working on a really cool concept to promote the concept of environmental sustainability at the School and beyond......

But it's still a secret so watch this space..........

Pancake Adventures every Sunday at the Markets
Pancake logo

Willem’s story …. I arrived in Australia where my pancake adventures continue. With the current tragic situation in Nepal, and in special places in India…I found it appropriate to organize a fundraiser by selling pancakes and donate the money to rebuilding the future of Nepalese kids, and Indian Communities.
I have travelled the world with my Pan, and know how to make Pancakes, it is in my blood, being of Dutch heritage. Come down and say Hi on Sunday, I will be around the back of the Markets.
Enjoy my pancakes and have a chat!!
