Eumundi is famous for its incredible craft markets which are held every Saturday and Wednesday in the heart of this small town. Eumundi is a beautiful historical town which has six amazing art galleries, wonderful quirky shops and interesting pubs and walking tours. The Markets are open 6.30am -2pm Saturdays and Wednesdays 8am- 1.30pm


It was 1979 when ceramic artist Christa Barton and her friend Gail Perry-Somers came up with the idea of holding a European style “artisans and farmers” market in Eumundi. The area had become a home for artisans, craftspeople and refugees from suburbia. What attracted people then, as now, was the town’s openness, sense of community and a simpler way of life. On 24 March 1979 three marketeers gamely set up their stalls around the CWA Hall, with refreshments served inside. There was a grand total of eight visitors and a turnover of $30. The Original Eumundi Markets was up and running!

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 the markets ethos of “we make it, bake it, grow it, sew it”. You will also find laksa, calamari, thai, paella, quality coffee, chocolate, great cakes, old fashioned lemonade, and more. They have a wealth of fresh produce – including fresh fruit and vegetables, freshly baked breads, locally made cheeses and yoghurts.
