Welcome to the Early Childhood Resources Market based in Newcastle. ECRM is a collaboration of Australian small businesses providing educational, sensory and holistic products and services suitable for young children.

There really is nothing quite like that hands on experience and chatting with our amazing customers and catching up with each other as vendors. ECRM will be back in 2022 with our next market day now rescheduled for Saturday, 23rd July at Club Macquarie in Newcastle.

Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions many of our vendors are currently unable to offer local delivery and/or click and collect. Many delivery services Australia wide are also experiencing delays. We thank you for your patience and understanding during these challenging times.

Thank you for your continued support of our wonderful Vendors, shopping small with the Early Childhood Resources Market really does makes a difference to our Vendors. We are really looking forward to all being together again in July!

This is how the Early Childhood Resources Market came to be, created from one small business owners dream to create a free boutique market for our local community and to network with and showcase fellow Australian small businesses.
