The Sunshine Coast hosts an array of entertaining Produce Markets and Art & Craft Markets.
In March 1979 Eumundi Artisans Christa Barton and Gail Perry-Somers held the very first Market in front of the Eumundi CWA Hall. With a total of 8 visitors it was the humble beginning of what has now become Australia’s premier Artisan Market. The Original Eumundi Markets has become a ‘must do’ for both tourists and locals. It also proved the perfect distance for day trippers from Brisbane after some quality retail therapy. The Original Eumundi Markets has grown to over 250 stalls and combined with neighbouring Markets stalls now total over 600 with an annual visitation in excess of 1.6 million people. Since the very first market in 1979 the Original Eumundi Markets continues to focus on handmade products with the ethos of Make it, Bake it, Sew it, Grow it.
