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

For over fifteen years The Olive Tree Market has provided an inclusive, collaborative, dynamic platform for artists, designers and foodies 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’. 

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, to sample delicious street food and discover the best of live independent music. 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. We regularly provide our visitor community with opportunities to participate in immersive workshops and cultural happenings.

Under the stewardship of the Cedar Mill Group, the Olive Tree Market has entered a new era. Cedar Mill Group, committed to encouraging tourism and boosting economic growth and job opportunities in the Hunter Valley and Lake Macquarie regions, has taken on this iconic local institution. The Olive Tree Market plays a strong role in reimagining Newcastle as a creative city and vibrant cultural tourism destination.
