The Hunter Valley region is home to many great markets where you can sample the delicious produce the area has to offer and discover an interesting range of arts and crafts. Here are just 3 we recommend you check out during your stay at our family hotel Rutherford.

Maitland Markets

This popular local market is held at the Maitland Showground, within easy reach of our Rutherford NSW accommodation. It boasts the cream of the region’s arts, crafts and fresh produce, with an enticing array of home baked cakes, hand crafted jewellery, arts and crafts to explore across more than 600 stalls. It takes place from 8am to 2pm on the first Sunday of each month. We highly recommend our guests take a look!

Handmade in the Hunter Markets

Situated in the beautiful gardens of the renowned Kevin Sobels Wines in Pokolbin, not far from our family hotel Rutherford, these markets are the place to uncover the variety and quality of goods grown, made and crafted in the region. With a convenient location close to many of the Hunter Valley’s best restaurants and wineries, why not make a day of it? The markets take place on the second and last Saturday of the month, between 9am-4pm.

Wollombi Village Markets

If you’re staying at our Maitland accommodation on a Holiday Monday, we recommend you check out these historic markets. There are more than 100 stalls to explore, featuring local produce, crafts, toys, jewellery, plants, clothes, tools, bric-a- brac and much more. Experience the beautiful local countryside and discover all that these lively markets have to offer.
