Like all Australians The Olive Tree Market community has been overwhelmed by the devastating impact the widespread bushfires have had on our natural environment, wild life, and so many communities and individuals and in response will hold a fundraiser at our first markets for 2020.

It’s been a sobering time watching the impacts of climate change, and a big wake up call that the time for real action is now. At our first two markets for 2020 a collective of fantastic Olive Tree Market stallholders are donating prizes for a raffle which will be held at our February 1st and March 7th markets. There will be three major prizes, made up of a collective of maker prizes, which will be drawn after our March market. All proceeds will be donated to the WIRES NSW RFS and the Salvation Army 

The Olive Tree Market invites the local community of Newcastle to visit the market on February 1st where they can make a gold coin donation- or more if you like- and go into the raffle to win fabulous prizes. Funds raised will be donated equally to each of the nominated charities.

Stallholder prizes will include an 80x80cm Framed Prints of Nobby’s beach by Burbia Prints Sunflower Rays Necklace by Velvet Sunday, ceramic flora dish from LouiseM Studio handmade raffia Tendry clutch by Tanora Design, hand painted Koala bell from Beep Bells, ceramic coffee cups Brett Niven Ceramics 1 Day beekeeping Workshop Voucher and 3 jars of homey by Urban Hum vibrant acro earrings by Oscar and Matilda resin dish by Belinda Doyle Design Australian animal family art works by Nicole Berlach eco-friendly Bath Products by In the Buff Body Stuff an A4 limited edition print from Little Hoot Hoot, ethically eco dyed baby onsie by Studio Tinta childrens swimwear featuring Australian Flora and Fauna prints by Happie Co polyclay earrings from Gracie Face eco friendly chemical free Australian made toothpaste by LOVEBYT to name a few!
