10 Facts About The Original Eumundi Markets You Probably Didn't Know


10 facts about The Original Eumundi Markets you probably didn't know.

. It has an annual visitation of 1.6 million people. 
That’s the equivalent of South Australia’s population. The entire South Australia population at little old Eumundi each year. Pretty impressive, huh?

. The Original Eumundi Markets celebrate it's 40th birthday next year. 
It began in 1979 when three marketeers decided to join forces and put on a farmers and artisan market with a firm ‘locally made’ policy. Their homegrown ethos are still going strong today.

. Stall holders must earn a spot at these prestigious markets.
Every stall holder must pass the ‘make it, bake it, sew it, grow it’ test. If it isn’t locally made, unique, eco-friendly and of high quality, you won’t find it at the Original Eumundi Markets. Case closed.

. It's world renowned.
And one of the biggest markets in Australia.

. There are now three markets in Eumundi every Saturday and Wednesday.
But only one is the Original. For the real deal, stick to the CWA Hall on Memorial Drive.

. The first market day made a turnover of $30.
Now I’d spend that alone in just food, drinks and more food. P.S: Do yourself a favour and eat your way through the Canecutter's section.

. They have gluten-free donuts. 
That’s a very important fact. (You're welcome).

. They have numerous long-serving stall holders.
Take Pete and Cookie from Hermitage Fine Foods for example. They've had their market stall at the Eumundi Markets since 1981. That's an incredible 37 years.

. They’ve had air time on Getaway.

. The first ever market day had 3 stalls.  
Now The Original Eumundi Markets has just under 300.
