The Original Eumundi Markets: Step into a wonderful world of original design at the best art and craft market in Australia and meet the artists face-to-face. You’ll find original artworks, sculptures, furniture, handmade toys, homewares, and skincare, as well as cutting edge fashion and jewellery by local designers, all guided by our ethos of “we make it, bake it, grow it, sew it”.
If you’re a foodie, you’ll especially love our market …laksa, calamari, thai, paella, quality coffee, chocolate, great cakes, old fashioned lemonade, and more. We have a wealth of fresh produce – including fresh fruit and vegetables, freshly baked breads, locally made cheeses and yoghurts.
And, when you need a break from the shopping, sit back and be entertained by a stellar line-up of performers guaranteed to get you in the groove. There’s plenty of local talent to keep you entertained, with world-music sounds, country tunes or tribal rhythms.
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.
