Blooming business at Newcastle Flower Market

The seed of an idea germinated during a visit to a local produce market will finally come into bloom this month with the launch of the Newcastle Flower Markets. Initially operating as a trade-only market two days each week, the venture will organically grow over time to include a third day of operation and include a designated time during which it will also be open to the public.
