One of the truly unique markets in the Hunter Valley, it doesn't have any 'junky 'stuff. It has stall holders who truly care about the products they sell and also lots of hand made artisan goods . You can be rest assured that a gift bought at Sacred Tree is a gift that will be treasured always. This is where i will be doing my Christmas shopping this year and it is also where i did my Christmas shopping last year.
Our farm stay guests love the Sacred Tree Market .Most of our farm stay guests come from the Sydney area and have never seen a market like it . The thing our farm stay guests love about it , is that it is 5 mins from the farm stay ,there is a gorgeous place to sit and eat ...and the food stalls are amazing. It is not just all about presents ....it is about communing with people in the town, meeting for coffee and listening to great music.There is also a very happy vibe that goes right through the market every time , the stall holders are happy, the customers are happy , everyone is happy.
Our farm stay tee pee came from the Sacred Tree Market earlier this year. I loved that an item that I purchased for our local business also benefitted another local business at the same time. It is this local economy we should be thinking about all the time when we purchase items. This kind of shopping moves around in a circle that comes straight back to where it came from everytime . We also bought lamps for the farm stay from a stall at the market.Market day is also a day for our family to get our loaf of sour dough bread, some fresh market veges ,our regular order of baklava(yum!) ,beautiful hand made cheese and some organic chicken . Dinner on market night is always a special one.
In fact , I love the markets so much ,that a friend and I asked to be part of it for the Dec.1st and Dec 15th market. 'Little Black Cow Farm ' and 'Cindale Herb Farm' have now joined together to form a little stall with hand made artisan goods , mostly handmade on the farm. Cindale Herb Farm has an amazing array of vege seedlings and herbs and 'Little Black Cow Farm' has some great Christmas gifts such as hand made iron sculptures and some of the goat milk soap made on the farm from our goat ,Snow. It feels a priveledge to take part in a market of this calibre that has a unique heart beat all of its own.
So ...if you are after a special Christmas gift this Christmas , this Sunday, December 15th is the last market before Christmas. You are sure to find an item that the stall holder cares about and wants it to go to the right home where it will be loved and appreciated.
Come to the Sacred Tree, visit our little town and see why this market is so very , very special.
