The Olive Tree Markets

Union Street (The Junction Public School), Merewether NSW 2291

‘The Olive Tree Market’ is part of the renaissance currently taking
place in Newcastle’s artisan community. Started in 2008, ‘The Olive
Tree Market’ is the first dedicated artisan market in Newcastle and
is the ‘launching pad for over a hundred creative minds!’

The market is constantly growing and evolving with new artisans joining the market each month. ‘The Olive Tree Market’ has a strong emerging artists section with an eclectic array of exciting stalls.

The Olive Tree Market was born from the desire of the three organisers to create a community artisans market that provided Newcastle’s contemporary art, craft and design practitioners with an arena to showcase their work. The aim was to create a vibrant culturally diverse atmosphere where artists could interact with their contemporaries and the wider public and sell their work without large overheads.

Within months the idea became a reality and we found the perfect location with the gorgeous sprawling grounds of ‘The Junction Public School’. We launched ‘The Olive Tree Market’ with 60 stalls in October 2008 and 18 months later the market had 100 stalls each month.

There are also two additional markets in the coming months - November 17th & December 15th as well as our BIG Christmas Market on December 1st
