It was a beautiful, sunny day in Maitland on Saturday - a perfect day for an outdoor market.
The Olive Tree Market returned to the Maitland Regional Art Gallery grounds to showcase local music, food and art.
"There were a couple of really nice Maitland-based stalls with some emerging and established artists who were first time stall holders," market founder Justine Gaudry said.
"It's a really positive thing to have more local people."
The market will return to Maitland on September 21.
Ms Gaudry said organisers were looking for more local musicians to put their hand up. To apply, visit www.theolivetreemarket.com.au
