About this event

Founded in 2008 The Olive Tree Market is Newcastle’s Premiere Contemporary Art & Design Market.

We feature a carefully curated line-up of over 130 of the best emerging and established artists, designers, makers, gourmet artisan food producers, and delicious street food purveyors each month.

Olive Tree connects you to Newcastle’s creative community. Our ethos is all about community, and supporting creators of handmade, maker, and ethically created goods. The Olive Tree Market is more than a market, it’s a meeting place, a vibrant space with a festival atmosphere, a place for our visitors to gather with family and friends in the cultural heart of Newcastle. Olive Tree provides visitors to the market with a unique opportunity to meet local artisans, view high quality goods and collect, source, and commission one-off works, and take home beautiful goods, which have been consciously created by our talented artistic community.

The Olive Tree Market was launched to provide Newcastle’s contemporary artists and designers with an arena to showcase their work at supportive, vibrant, culturally diverse events. For over a decade The Olive Tree Market has provided an inclusive, collaborative, dynamic platform for artists, designers and producers to take creative risks, to interact and create relationships with their contemporaries and an engaged customer base, and to evolve and develop into sustainable and self-sufficient creative enterprises.

Discovering, mentoring and fostering opportunities for the next generation of Newcastle’s creatives and emerging musicians, is central to our ethos and belief that cultural innovators are the leaders of ‘the future’. Since launching in 2008, Olive Tree has fostered over 800 artists, designers, makers and creative and innovative small businesses- at over 115 market days! Creating opportunities, and championing the stallholder community who attend our events, is the passion that drives us.

We regularly provide our visitor community with opportunities to participate in immersive workshops and cultural happenings. We are proud that our customer base has grown with us over a decade, and are passionate about supporting and buying local, developing relationships with our artists, designers, and creators, and being informed, conscious consumers.
