a little market history

On 24 March 1979 three people gamely set up their stalls around Eumundi's CWA hall with refreshments served inside. There was a grand total of 8 visitors - not including the stallholders family members. The Eumundi Markets was up and running!
After only 1 year the markets gained a reputation as a source of energy, variety, freshness and friendliness, properties that still are present today but with an annual visitation that has grown to around 1.2miliion!
