• Justine Gaudry - The Olive Tree Market

Virtually All the Fun of the Market!

COVID-19 had an immediate drastic impact on the creative community of The Olive Tree Market, as well as the Australian creative community as a whole. The majority of the 150 regular small creative businesses who participate at Olive Tree rely on markets for the large part of their income.

With all large events with customer visitation numbers of over 500 people, we too were required to cease operating due to public safety concerns. So not only did our stallholder community lose their ability to trade, and the income they relied on from The Olive Tree Market, they also had all their other events cancelled- both locally and nationally.
