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 event.

Our ethos is all about community, and supporting creators of handmade, maker, and ethically created goods.

Olive Tree connects you to Newcastle’s creative community.

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. Meet our makers, learn their stories, and take home beautiful goods, which have been consciously created by our talented artistic community.
