Its a long break between markets this time, a five week break, which I’m sure will mean that the Olive Tree Stallholders will have lots of great new work!!

The Sweet Boutique Stall

If you came to Junes Market you would have noticed the New Gourmet Food area!! The feedback from the stallholders was fantastic and our new cheese stall Cheese & Co sold out of their cheeses and breads! The new gourmet food stalls include: Hunter Belle Cheese, Cheese & Co, A Taste of the Bush, Pureblends, Arolyn Grove, Tea by Grete, Bon Chai, Little Cossack Kefir, Hunter Heritage Gourmet Foods, Aunty Evas Jams, River Flats and The Sweet Boutique!! 

Remember to let us know if you have a gourmet food product and/or produce and are interested in having a stall please get in contact!  
If you have sampled the goodies from Wozz! Kitchen Creations over the last few months, and you love their delicious products, then you need to come and stock up at July’s Olive Tree as the owner Warrick is moving to the U.S!! We will miss Warrick’s smiling face at Olive Tree!! 

I must say that Anna Farthing, the owner and creator of The Sweet Boutique, has been getting some fabulous press of late with articles in The Newcastle Herald http://www.theherald.com.au/news/local/news/general/petite-sweets-offer-a-treat/2588224.aspx and a great blog article on the Aloud http://interviewsaloud.com

So! you must come and sample Anna’s delicious cupcakes! Be warned The Sweet Boutique and Sugarlicious’s macaroons sell out very early- both stalls have very dedicated followers who are serious about getting their monthly fix!

KW Creations Stall

We will have some really great new art & design stalls at July’s market! Including: surface design & screen-printed home wares from Michaela Siewert, Wisteria who design and create really beautiful cards & prints with a little bit of vintage to spice up their stall, KW Creations make gorgeous scented candles in vintage cups and festive hanging candles which can be used inside or outside  & in your garden or for parties, Rochelle Cooper Handmade who create gorgeous crocheted blankets and handmade 'goodness' in the form of funky beanies and more! You will see additional new stalls at the July Market!

Georgie- Rose Kefecek & Friend

So! We really are going through an exciting growth phase at Olive Tree! If you haven’t visited us for a while you must!! There is a lot to see and of course to hear with our partnership with Lizottes Newcastle who provide a great lineup of local and emerging artists at each market. The play list for the day will be posted on Facebook the week of the market.

We will also be starting a new monthly focus on The Olive Tree Market Blog which will tell you more about our individual stallholders. The first post will be published on June 25th on the blog- http://theolivetreemarket.blogspot.com.au

The first focus will be on Zoe T from Oscar & Matila- http://www.oscarandmatilda.com
