You’ll be in awe of the fashion, jewellery, railway memorabilia, bric-a-brac, books and homewares when you check out over 60 vendors at the Church Street Markets this year at Burton Automotive Hunter Valley Steamfest.
For train enthusiasts, don’t go past the Choo Choo Bar, where collectors can browse and buy unique railway memorabilia.
If you’re looking for inspiration in the kitchen, we have a number of vendors who will be able to guide you. Add international fusion flavours to your meals with olives, olive oil, hand made gourmet spice rubs and seasonings from Alsa Fine Food Ingredients. Get your meat fix from Goose on the Loose with a variety of salami on offer from the traditional Italian range, as well as the premium range with unique flavours including wild boar and fennel, kangaroo and chilli, venison and cranberry, beef and horseradish and duck and juniper berry. If you’re into jams and relishes, pick up a few items from Ladybug Preserves, where all preserves are hand made in small batches and free from artificial colours, flavours and preservatives.
Need a unique piece of furniture for your home or office? Hardwood Archeology will be in attendance with their hand made furniture and homewares uniquely created from recycled and slabbed timber. Grab a rustic boho style gift for a friend, or even for yourself, as you browse the soy wax candles and melts, 3D papercraft frames, gift cards and eclectic jewellery from Raw Creations by Stephi.
Your kids will love the range of clothing and accessories from Wild Hearts Childrens Wear which are handmade in Newcastle for newborns to size 12. There will also be showbags for sale in addition to icecream and sweets vendors to keep the kids entertained while you explore the Steamfest precinct.
With all of these stalls and many more, you’ll find something for the whole family to enjoy and if all of that shopping has made you hungry, you can buy a sausage sanga from Maitland Public School as you wander through the photography exhibition within the school grounds.
