The Australian Made Campaign and the Original Eumundi Markets are collaborating to help boost the Queensland institution’s image as Australia’s largest premier craft market for locally made and grown products and produce.
According to a media release from Australian Made, local artisans who are eligible to operate stalls will now be able to use the iconic Australian Made, Australian Grown logo with the words ‘Australian Made in Eumundi’ or ‘Australian Grown in Eumundi’. This aims to help visitors identify creations as having been made in Australia, in the region.
Peter Homan, Manager of The Original Eumundi Markets, said the partnership is a milestone in the institution’s 35 years of operation.
“We think it’s important to support the people making and growing here, and give them access to competitive advantages – the localised version of the Australian Made, Australian Grown logo helps us to do that,” Mr Homan said.
“The logo represents many of our core values and is a great addition to the market’s overall branding.”
“We believe visitors from other parts of Queensland, interstate and overseas come to Eumundi to discover the products we make and grow here – they want to see something different and unique – and we give them that.”
Australian Made Campaign chief executive Ian Harrison commended The Original Eumundi Markets for joining as a Campaign Associate this year and the role it plays in promoting local produce and products.
“Support from Campaign Associates helps to amplify the important message about buying local, and we are proud to have The Original Eumundi Markets onboard,” Mr Harrison said.
“When you walk into this market you feel the energy, the happiness and the camaraderie – it’s an experience not to be missed. If you’re planning on visiting The Original Eumundi Markets, be sure to look for the logo when you shop.”
