Coronavirus | April and May 2020 markets cancelled
The Black Head Bazaar committee has decided to cancel the April and May 2020 markets to comply with NSW Government health advice. As the organisers of the market, we want to do our part to help reduce community transmission. We hope to begin the markets next September.

What if the Bazaar is cancelled?
If the park is too wet, the Bazaar will be cancelled and an announcement will be sent to ABC Mid North Coast local radio on the Friday or Saturday before the market. We will also update our telephone message and our Facebook and Instagram pages.
About the Bazaar
The Bazaar is organised by Black Head Bazaar Inc to raise money for community, environmental and local beautification projects. Held under the shady trees of beautiful Wylie Breckenridge Park, the Bazaar has a variety of stalls including handmade clothing, jewellery, plants, collectables and freshly-picked farm fruit and vegies. There's a great selection of food and coffee and a BBQ.
The First Bazaar
The first was held on Easter Sunday 1991 in the park near Black Head Lagoon. There were only eight stalls and the profit was thirty dollars. The market slowly grew and spread to the eastern end, and later to the western end, of Wylie Breckenridge Park. It is a popular community market.
HP Public School veggie garden
In 2010, we built a veggie garden at the school. Volunteers guide the children in propagating and planting veggies and herbs. The harvest goes home with the kids or to the school's canteen.
Our Bloomin' Lot
In 2014,we received approval to operate a garden and nursery for the benefit of our members. It's located on land generously provided by Jim Dixon south of the Foodworks building and we call it "Our Bloomin' Lot".
We've installed raised garden beds, planted native plants to help control drainage and removed weeds. We've has also installed an eye-catching bamboo shade structure that will provide shelter for propagating native seeds and plants. Native plants and trees raised in the nursery will be used in local regeneration projects.
