Ultimate Guide: Newcastle and Hunter Valley Markets

One of my favourite discoveries in living in Newcastle has been finding such a great array of markets! At any of the Hunter Valley Markets you will find an array of craft, food, boutique designers, handmade and artisan products, local goods, and opportunities for charity. You name it and somewhere in the Hunter Valley and Newcastle region you will find a market to make you happy!
