Market Founder Justine Gaudry said, “Maitland Regional Art Gallery is such an wonderful gallery, and community asset. In addition to it’s exhibitions, MRAG features amazing community programming and really presented The Olive Tree Market with the perfect location for an event to showcase creatives from Maitland and the Hunter Valley as well as from further afield.”
The Autumn Olive Tree Market will feature stalls including: stunning prints and ceramic jewellery by artist Ellie Hannon, women’s fashion with Japanese textiles by The Niki Tree, contemporary textile home wares by Bay Trader Co, art works by local Indigenous artist Saretta Fielding, vibrant clay jewellery by The Rebel Rabbit, unique handmade planters with succulents by dogswoodinc and ceramics home wares with unique motifs by Hell Wench to name a few. There will also be gourmet artisan food stalls for those the foodies.

Sample delicious treats including pastries by Choux Patisserie by well know Chef Nic Polaert, French crepes by Kid & Cat for those with a sweet tooth or Middle Eastern Cuisine by Zaytoona or Vietnamese by Vietyum.
Ms. Gaudry said that the Olive Tree Market was still hoping to increase the number of artists and designers from Maitland and The Hunter at the Maitland branch of The Olive Tree Market.
“We really do want to highlight and support the arts community of Maitland and The Hunter and we want to let local creatives know that it’s not too late to get in contact with The Olive Tree Market and submit an applications to participate in the Autumn Market on April 29th.
