Make Christmas ethical at the Fair Trade Christmas Markets

Saturday 7 December, 10am – 4pm
Chatswood Mall, Chatswood

Make a difference this Christmas by doing your shopping at Willoughby City Council’s Fair Trade Christmas Markets on Saturday 7 December 2019 from 10am to 4pm in Chatswood Mall.

Featuring ethically sourced handcrafted items with an inspirational story, the vibrants markets are the perfect place to find gifts that give back to the person who made them, with money going to support economically disadvantaged artisans, farmers and producers.

Check out the wide range of fashion accessories, toys, homewares, beauty products, jewellery, cards and lots more – gifts for the whole family and of course, yourself!

Quality goods from fair trade businesses include Colombian bags and tagua jewellery from Koguis, Panama hats and hammocks from the Toucan Shop, embroidered cushion covers from Global Conduct, summer fashion from Stitch’d, Sri Lankan toys from Apsara, beautiful woven baskets from Bozy, silver jewellery from Eden Ministries, block printed quilts from Kalai and unique recycled beaded jewellery from Afribeads.

This free event is part of Council’s Live Well in Willoughby series of events, talks and workshops providing fun ways to rethink your lifestyle to create a more sustainable future. Find out more at
