Eumundi markets

On Wednesday afternoon our Pre-Intermediate classes went to the Eumundi markets to do an English activity and to see the world famous food and craft markets.

Our students needed to complete the sentence and write about their experiences that they shared with each other that day.

Pre-int 9

“Yesterday we went to Eumundi markets with the class…..”

“Yesterday we went with the school to the Eumundi markets. That weather was good and we enjoyed it. After Kana walked around the markets she decided to buy a Pitaya bowl. She enjoyed the food a lot because it was very good.  Jenny decided to buy a sugar cane juice. But she didn’t enjoy it because she thought it would be a sweet flavour but it smelt like ginger. Nerea didn’t buy anything because she has been to the markets 4 times before.

We enjoyed the live music. The boy played a Didgeridoo and it was the first time we listened to traditional aboriginal music.

The experience in Eumundi market was amazing!!”

Written by Jenny, Nerea and Kana

“Yesterday we went to Eumundi Market.

We ate hot dogs, ice-cream and slinky potatoes.

But we bought nothing more.

We saw worm juice, fake ear pods and a Macaw.

We listened to Aboriginal music.

We watched caricature, finger painting , face painting and leather work.

Eumundi Market had Brazilian Tapioca food and Japanease Okonomiyaki.

There were bargains and we saw paisley print clothes.

So we spent a good time together.”

Written by Mauricio, Zoe and Erika

Eumundi Stall Holders’ Bio

eumundi_machiko-pic

Eumundi Market is the biggest art and hand craft market in Australia. There are more than six hundred stalls and all stalls are quite unique and lively.

Among them is a beautiful painting stall I want to introduce you to. I would say, if you want to buy a painting to make your room more beautiful, this shop is the best.

It sells the owner’s original hand paintings. All paintings are colorful, beautiful and fascinating.

She draws various sizes of paintings. Depending on the size, it takes approximately three hours to three weeks for her to finish each one.

She started painting about forty years ago. After she had been in some other markets, she started opening her stall in Eumundi ten years ago. She especially loves this market because it’s an artistic market. People who come here look for works of art. Also there are a lot of artist’s stalls. She likes to hold her shop in this atmosphere.

eumundi_machiko1

She usually starts setting up her stall two hours before the market. Under the trees, in nice weather, she really enjoys this location.

But when it’s raining, she has to take care of her drawings and protect them from the rain. This is the most difficult thing when she runs this stall.

The happiest moment is when people like her paintings and buy them. When they buy her paintings, people are so happy and look very satisfied. So she feels her paintings make people happy.

You can only get her paintings at the Eumundi Market. It’s so special. If you are interested in her paintings, please visit her facebook “Ko Heart”. On this page, you will see many of her paintings which decorate many houses.

Come to Eumundi Market and find this amazing creative shop!

 emilie

Richard Goldsworthy is the owner of a music piano stall in Eumundi’s market. He has been working there for almost ten years now, always doing  the same routine which starts with taking one hour to set up his stall.

What he likes the most about working here is meeting new people everyday, even if the weather can be a real problem sometimes. He creates music for Solo Piano and spends a lot of time doing it.

He likes to think that his work is tranquil, soothing, melodic and uplifting. To advertise his merchandise, the musician uses a lot of different things like flyers and postcards. But he also has a website and a few accounts on social media, where we can buy his CD at any time.

Working only in Eumundi’s market for now, he thinks that what makes a real difference here is that there are many people coming in. Despite the crowd, he admits that he has regular customers. People even cry while listening to his music, so that proves that he must be good.

Our Excellent Eumundi Excursion

img_2998On Wednesday, 16th November 2016 we made a trip with our Lexis Upper Intermediate A class to Eumundi Market. We caught the bus at 8.55am in Noosa Junction with our teacher Olly. There we made some teams and he gave us some instructions.

Our team had to do an interview with a seller from the Market. While we were walking Kim disappeared and we found him in a clothes’ store.

img_3001That is how we met Scott, a 55 old Australian who lives in Coolum. He has been working there for 25 years every Wednesday and Saturday with his wife. He also has another store in Caloundra, where he works every Friday. He was very friendly and open-minded and he told us he really likes working at Eumundi Market because he can meet a lot of people and interact with them. He said we were good guys and he enjoyed talking to us. 

We had an amazing time there and saw many different and interesting things. We saw a lot of hand-made things, artistic people and all different kinds of international food.  We met a lot of warm-hearted people who gave us the opportunity to speak with them.

We hope you enjoy our text a lot.

Eumundi Market: Then and Now

The first Eumundi Market took place on Saturday 24th of March in 1979. The whole market included 3 stalls and 8 people went to the market. Originally the market was created for the local artists who wanted to sell their handmade products. The original Eumundi Market was expanded in 2002 to include a Wednesday market. In 2009 the stalls were expanded to more than 600. Today approximately 1.6 million people visit the market each year. One of the first sellers was Christa Barton. She still produces beautiful pottery but she left the market in 2004 and moved to Tasmania. Eumundi rocks!
