On Saturday it would be wonderful if you could follow the following COVID Safe Event recommendations:

Please stay home and get tested if feeling unwell. 

Customers/ Visitors are strongly advised to wear a mask to protect other people. (If worn properly masks may prevent sick people from infecting others. If unknowingly infected, wearing a mask will reduce the chance of passing COVID-19 on to others.)

Wash your hands/or use hand sanitiser regularly. There will be hand sanitiser stations throughout the market site.

Adhere to the one person per 2 square metres, rule in order to reduce the risk of crowding.

Physical distancing is an event requirement. All event stallholders and customers are asked to stay 1.5 metres away from others, when possible.

If queuing please keep 1.5 metres apart. Queueing is discouraged if physical distancing can not be adhered to ( this will help discourage crowding and close proximity between event patrons and and prevent prolonging the contact time between people who do not know each other which makes contact tracing more difficult.)

We advise that attendees check for current public health advice on locations attended by people confirmed to have COVID-19. Anyone who attended these locations at the listed date and time and who is required to get tested self-isolate and must not attend The Olive Tree Market. 

Stallholders will regularly clean their hands with soap and water/ hand sanitizer, wipe down surfaces and products with disinfectant solution/ and or disposable wipes. Discovering and touching beautiful goods is always part of appreciating makers, but at this time customers are encouraged from touching products whenever possible.

Olive Tree Market at the New Annual is Sponsored by the City Of Newcastle. We are super grateful for the supporting in helping our market community, and our event, return to Civic Park.


See you this Saturday from 10am-4pm in Civic Park. We Can’t Wait to see you for the first time since 2020!
