As the town of Eumundi commemorates Anzac Day with a community walk and service at the town's Amphitheatre, General Manager of Eumundi Markets Peter Homan has asked market stallholders to support the commemoration by ceasing trading through the Anzac Day service from 7.55am until 9.05am.

"The Anzac Day service is a significant and all important event for the Eumundi community with its famous WWI memorial trees, and indeed for the Eumundi Market stallholders," Peter said.

"Eumundi Markets, and the management committee of the Eumundi & District Historical Association have again worked with the Eumundi RSL to ensure a respectful commemoration service for Anzac Day.

"Aside from restricting trading through the service, Eumundi Markets will be relocating stalls on the day to accommodate the ceremony, and will assist with closing the street and traffic management. In addition, volunteers at the Eumundi Market carpark will be handing out rosemary to market visitors," he said.
