Launched in 2008 The Olive Tree Market is Newcastle’s Leading Art & Design Market featuring over 150 stalls each month.
The Olive Tree Market was born from the desire of the three organisers to create a community art & design market that provided Newcastle’s contemporary artists and designers 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.
Since its inception, The Olive Tree Market has gained the reputation of being one of Newcastle’s hidden treasures, wowing people with the high quality of work on offer. It provides visitors to the market with the unique opportunity to meet local artisans, view high quality work, and it allows the wider public to collect, source, and commission one-off works.
The market’s eclectic mix of stalls includes: photography, illustration, fashion, ceramics, home wares, jewellery, printmaking, sustainable design, textile arts, wood and metal work, painting and handmade children’s clothing and toys.
There is also dedicated gourmet artisan produce area and delicious food from around the world.
The Olive Tree Market is a major community event, and meeting place, and each market features a program of live music showcasing talented local musicians.
The Olive Tree Market is held on the first Saturday of the month, and the first and third Saturdays of November and December, in Civic Park, Newcastle.
