The Original Sunshine Coast Attraction Recognised



The Original Eumundi Markets Finalist In 'Attractions' Category

The Original Eumundi Markets were a finalist in the ‘Attractions’ category at the Sunshine Coast Business Awards 2018, held on Saturday November 17 at the Novotel Twin Waters Resort. 

The iconic markets have been an attraction on the Sunshine Coast for almost 40 years and with so many great attractions on the Sunshine Coast, the Original Eumundi Markets are honoured to be recognised.

Market Operations Manager of the Original Eumundi Markets, Jan Ammitzboll, said,

“It was a thrill to be part of the Award proceedings. The team and I were excited to be amongst the finalists for 2018 and we’re looking forward to 2019”.

The Original Eumundi Markets was established in 1979 by two locals artisans who wanted to start a European style artisans and farmers market.

The first ever Original Eumundi Market day was held at the CWA hall on Memorial Drive and consisted of three stall holders, eight visitors and whopping $30 turnover!

Today, the Original Eumundi Markets have over 300 stall holders and an annual visitation of over 1.2 million people.

While the numbers have grown, one thing has remained the same - the markets ethos.

The Original Eumundi Markets remains true to its roots: make it, bake it, sew it, grow it.

Every stall holder must pass the locally made test making a day at the Original Eumundi Markets truly original.

March next year, the Original Eumundi Markets will celebrate its 40th year.

With plenty to celebrate in the future and lots to appreciate in the past, right now the Original Eumundi Markets will continue to do what it’s renowned for: offer vibrant and buzzing markets every Wednesday and Saturday - rain, hail or shine.
