The markets’ history dates back to 1979 when a European-style artisan and farmers’ market was conceptualised by Christa Barton, a ceramic artist, and her friend Gail Perry-Somers. What they created helped put craftspeople on the map, but more importantly, helped inspire a sense of community. Back then, the pair held the markets in the CWA Hall where food and art stalls weren’t just put up but out-of-work youth were encouraged to learn how to hone their skills in making both goods and food products.

The first Eumundi Markets opened its doors to the public on March 24th, 1979 with just 8 visitors. Today, it welcomes more than 1.6 million people every year who come to shop at the over 600 stalls.

What makes this market unique is that they pioneered the policy of only selling locally made items. Because of this strong principle in mind, as well as helping small entrepreneurs and the youth, it’s easy to see why it still stands strong to the present day.

The markets are considered a critical business incubator and employ around 1,000 locals. It’s truly the best way to experience and taste the best of what the region has to offer.

The markets happen on Wednesdays and Saturdays; each of these days you will find unique finds including handmade toys, furniture, original art, independent fashion, jewellery, skincare, homeware, premium coffee and chocolates, cheese, tableware, cakes, and so much more. Aside from that, some specialty stalls also offer vegetarian food, healing modalities, wellness, and more.

The Eumundi Markets are renowned the world over and for good reason, so be sure you don’t miss out!
