30 May Discovering the Eumundi Markets
If you’re like me you most likely enjoy finding new markets to browse. This involves hunting for delicious produce and imagining how they can be widely used in creative and favorite cooking of mine.
One location you might choose to try checking out is the Eumundi Markets in Eumundi, Queensland, Australia.
One good reason I enjoy the Eumundi markets on the Sunshine Coast is that it was created to supply local produce and products in a fun youthful environment. It helps that the market place has grown to in excess of 300 stalls signifying travelers can be expecting to find a wide variety of food and regionally made products to cherish. Eumundi Markets are now considered to be the most impressive arts and crafts markets on the Sunshine Coast.
The Eumundi Markets is perfect for that lazy weekend when you just like to discover the ambience of the local market crowd and preview the local-made treasures that you can’t find anyplace else, not to suggest the very good local edible treats that are served up in the stalls dotted throughout the Eumundi marketplace.
I also enjoy the fact that Eumundi Markets have many events for tourists to check for. As an instance, the Market Chef cook offs are seriously a little something to look out for as budding chefs try their own hand at producing new dishes with the native produce to choose from in the farmers’ market. The cook offs are arranged from April to June on a yearly basis. An additional event that might invoke to you is the Australian Body Art Carnivale where body art is renowned. This exhibition is free of charge. Don’t worry about your kids hoping to get body art painted on their bodies – the body art is only temporary (not real tattoos that have to get etched on skin.) There are three categories namely airbrush and special effects; brush and sponge; and face painting.
If you’re not seriously into body art, there are other events you can explore. Photo buffs can wait for the photography portion of the Carnivale to participate in both competitions and exhibitions of digital art and photo print. Your cars can be the canvas for vehicle body art in the Show
I think the proprietors of the Eumundi Markets may not have predicted their brainchild to be such a roaring success. It just proves that great things can start from small beginnings.
So next time you are visiting the Sunshine Coast or Coolum Beach, make sure a visit to the Eumundi Markets is most definitely on your list of things to do.
