YULE BE AMAZED: Olive Tree gets into the festive spirit with HUGE Christmas market

Looking to grab something special for that special someone this festive season?

Well, lucky for you the ever-popular Olive Tree Markets is hosting the biggest event of its calendar – The Olive Tree Christmas markets.

This seasonal celebration of all things creative is more than just a place to shop, though.

Think a community event with a line-up of top-notch local musical talent, including Lachlan Edwards, Brown Bear and Hooves and Jye Sharp, free Christmas craft activities for the kids and roving street performers.

Oh and of course let’s not forget about more than 180 stalls! Obviously too many to list here – you’ll just have to go and check it out for yourself!

There are so many reasons to shop local – and visitors can discover unique gift ideas, and be assured that they can pick-up, small-batch, ethically created handmade goods.

Each purchase means you are supporting local artists and championing creative talent.

Once the shopping, and sampling are done, visitors can bring along a picnic rug, and join friends and family, for a delicious brunch from a dizzying array of local street food purveyors.

The Olive Tree Christmas Market is on at Civic Park on Saturday 7 December.
