You can also have your palm read or indulge in a vast array of services offered by our many health and well-being practitioners.

Market Hours: Wednesdays 8 am – 1.30 pm & Saturdays 7 am – 2 pm

The Original Eumundi Markets are open rain, hail or shine every Wednesday and Saturday.

Over the years, several independent organisations, including the Eumundi and District Community Association, have also set up other market operations adjacent to The Original Eumundi Markets, making the overall Eumundi Markets now the biggest art and craft market in Australia.

Our market community has now grown to more than 600 stalls and boasts an annual visitation of 1.6 million people!

The Original Eumundi Markets continue to focus on handmade products, with the ethos of “make it, bake it, grow it, sew it”.

The philosophy of locally handmade products and services has served the Eumundi Markets well over the last 30 years and it is the originality and uniqueness of the stallholders and their creativity that has customers coming back for more year after year.

Eumundi Markets is a vibrant, ever-evolving collaboration of many talented people seeking to share their gifts with the world. We play a pivotal role in supporting and promoting young local creative talent. We also recognise our responsibility in nurturing new businesses in their formulative years by providing a cost effective alternative for test marketing and trialling of new products and services, unique to this region.

We are also seeking to create the best sustainable shopping experience anywhere on this planet by changing our own practices to ensure our green credentials are pure. In conjunction with our local school, we have created a worm farm to process all compostable waste generated by the market and for the school to resell the organic fluids and castings to raise much-needed funds. The market is now plastic bag free and all packaging materials used are fully compostable.

In the future, we will be installing our own solar power generation and water harvesting to become self-sufficient with our energy needs, with the long-term aim of exporting any surplus energy within the community.

Guild History: The idea for a guild grew from just some hazy dreaming in a shed between a few old Range ‘woodies’ who felt the need for a club to serve the whole of the Blackall Range. Development on the range and adjacent areas due to the recreational and retirement plans of many people was increasing, and the search for fulfilling hobbies, perhaps with some income generation, and the chance for constructive community involvement was growing.

The decision was made to have a go and the club had its first meeting in St.Mary’s Hall on the Village Green at Montville on 4th March 1996. The Blackall Range Woodcrafters Guild Inc was formally incorporated on 30th April 1996.

In 2002, after six years in a shed on Western Avenue, and following the receipt of a Jupiter’s Casino Grant, we moved to a more permanent base at the Montville Sports Ground, about 3km south of Montville.

With good local support, the club has rapidly grown into a thriving purposeful group over 150 strong, including a good number of ladies. It now has a complete range of equipment, including a solar drying kiln and a large stock and range of timber supplies. In our new premises we envisage young people, retirees, people in care centres and similar being able to take advantage of the benefits which a permanent and purpose-built building can provide.
