- Our Community -

People come to explore, shop, experience, sell, eat and drink, be entertained and share a simple day. While return visitation is high, the increase in total attendance is the strongest indication that our event is increasing in popularity. Maitland Markets are held at the Maitland Showground located at Blomfield Street Louth Park. The Showground is easily accessible by road for intrastate visitors, connected by the Pacific Highway and Sydney Freeway from the south and north, and the New England and Golden Highways from the west. Newcastle and Hunter Valley visitors can travel to the site by both car and train. The showground site provides the perfect setting for our markets. The markets have provided this activity for 28 years.
Going to Maitland Markets

"It’s like shopping used to be. It’s a day event; we share as a family, enjoying the open space, the variety of products, the bargains and the ambience. We always make sure we visit our family in Maitland on a markets weekend."

From humble beginnings of 60 stalls, the markets have grown tenfold in less than three decades. Browse each of the following sections and learn more about our lovely community!
