Eumundi market


The Original Eumundi Markets was founded in 1979 by two local artists who came up with the idea of starting an ‘artisans and farmers’ markets in the European style. Eumundi township has long been a drawcard for people wanting to live a more simple life, away from the mad rush of city life and as such has some amazingly gifted artists, craftspeople, writers, spiritualists and poets, just to name a few.
The original ethos behind this massively popular market is “we make it, bake it, grow it, sew it”, and that continues on today, and you won’t find anything mass produced or not aligned to this belief that was set over 30 years ago.

There are now over 600 stalls within the market precinct and has an average of over 1.6 million visitors annually, from all over the world! It certainly is a market to delight the senses. Foodies will be in their element with seafood, laksa, paella, quality coffee and chocolate, old fashioned ginger beer and lemonade, freshly baked breads, locally made cheeses and much more.

For those of you who are into collecting fine things you’ll find handmade toys, sculpture, crafted furniture, hand blown glass, exquisite jewellery. There are home wares, beautiful fabrics, clothing, shoes and bags, as well as organic skin care, hair care and cosmetics.

Brilliant local talent entertain the crowds with a variety of music covering the whole spectrum, world music, tribal rhythms, jazz, country and blues. Take a break from shopping and sit back with a bite to eat, a refreshing drink and absorb the sights and sounds around you.
