Eumundi Markets – World famous markets on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.

These markets are one of my favourite markets in Queensland.  The colourful and fun Eumundi markets are held in the town centre of Eumundi, 20 km from Noosa Heads on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland.  They are held every Saturday and Wedensday, rain, hail or shine.  If you are travelling by car from Brisbane it will take just over an hour.  If you have a sense of adventure you can use a combination of trains and public transport to get there from Brisbane.

The Eumundi Markets are unique, renowned for locally made artisan treasures. There are many wares for sale made by talented local artists seeking to share their gifts with the world. The Original Eumundi Market is believed to be the biggest and the best art and craft market in Australia.

I am a bit of a coffee snob so I do look for a good coffee whenever I can find one.  I grabbed a quick coffee at the Bean and Gone coffee stall.  I have to say it is one of the best coffees I have tasted IN THE WORLD!  It was unexpectedly fabulous.  I cant wait to go back to get another one.  Bean and Gone will be my first stop when I go back.  Wow, just wow, is all I can say about that coffee.

Local artists have  handcrafted furniture, homewares, artworks, ceramics, cutting-edge fashion and jewellery stalls.  You can also buy direct from the local farmers and bakers who sell fresh produce and gourmet delights.  You can grab a massage, have your palm read or lose yourself in the stellar line-up of musicians and street performers. There are many, many, many stalls to keep you walking and getting those fitness steps up.

You can get free street parking if you are lucky enough but there is also paid parking close by, with proceeds going to local charities.  Volunteers manage this parking facility which is well worth paying for.

If you are looking for a fun day to stay active and shop (combining two of my loves) then head to the Eumundi Markets.  It’s a great way to support local artists and a small community.
