It’s a really exciting opportunity for The Olive Tree Market. We have wanted to take the market to other locations for some time but finding the right location and partner was extremely important. The Olive Tree market has a very strong reputation as a high quality handmade art & design market and MRAG is known as an award winning innovate cultural facility so it presented the perfect opportunity for us to take the event to a new location and audience.
The Olive Tree Market at MRAG will differ from the market in Newcastle so we hope that visitors from across the region will visit the event at MRAG and enjoy a day exploring the market and the gallery. It will be strongly curated market with a different stallholder line-up at each date. Stalls for these events are still available and talented contemporary emerging and established contemporary artists and designers and gourmet artisan food producers are encouraged to apply by visiting www.theolivetreemarket.com.au
Visitors can wander amongst vibrant eclectic stalls, meet the artists and discover work straight from the hands of the makers all while relaxing to the sounds of talented local musicians and sampling great food. There will be a series of artist run workshops and of course visitors can spend the day exploring the Art Gallery.
MRAG is a multi-award winning cultural facility and an excellent destination for those looking for entertaining and creative activities for the whole family, so bring along your picnic rug and make a day of it!
