Eumundi Markets


Held on Wednesday and Saturday,  Eumundi Markets are renowned for their locally made artisan treasures. Eumundi is the largest art and craft market in Australia.

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. Their vision was to develop a retail base for local small crop growers and locally produced crafts, as well as offering a retail base for out-of-work young people – to develop their skills in handicrafts and food preparation.

By 1985, The Original Eumundi Markets had 97 stalls, with an estimated attendance of 143,000 people for the year. By 1990, it had grown to 203 stalls, with some 260,000 visitors for the year. Now the market has grown to more than 600 stalls and boasts an annual visitation of 1.6 million people.
