All Well and Good Day. Eumundi Markets Saturday.

Come and watch me cook something delish from my new book ” Kitchen Witchen, the Magic of Food as medicine” at THE ALL WELL AND GOOD DAY .

We are at our 5th ALL WELL AND GOOD DAY. At Eumundi Markets . It all started with a discussion about having a great health day at the markets and profiling all the amazing stalls that make, produce, and practice natural health care and healing there.

With stalls dedicated to everything from palm readings, tarot, shiatsu, massage, animal health, homeopathy, naturopathy, herbalism, crystal  necklaces, mayan healing cards, beeswax balms, herbal skin care, shampoos, gorgeous handmade soaps, fresh juices, local organic vegetables, tempeh, even raw herbs, We had to do something…. and we did.

Come along tomorrow Sat 29th September and enjoy the trail. Its an awesome trail. You can visit the stall holders and talk with them about their services and increase your network of health care people here on the Sunny coast. Follow your program map around and meet some great people, experience some beautiful health benefits and develop your health network. ( scroll to the bottom of my blog for the full press release with program)

Coming to The Eumundi markets where its easy to have a massage, pick up your herbs, do your vegetable shopping, get some beautiful hand made local foods and also enjoy a day out is certainly our number one shopping option. As you know, we like local foods, we support local industry and the markets really are the core place for this to happen. Weekly we all leave our farms and our homes to showcase our products and services. Its a wonderful way to do business and we just love it!

This year there are three stages operating which offer diverse, entertaining and educating options.

The Amphitheatre is fun filled with ,local sporting clubs, QLD health teams, yoga groups, therapists and some really great dancers. There are demonstrations through the morning.

The Market Chef Kitchen is where I will be found in the morning cooking up a delish treat for you. And, the program there is packed for a morning full of great cooking tips, healthy options and some really beautiful foods to cook and try out. YOU can pre order a copy of my new book and go in the draw for a $500 medicineroom voucher.

This year we have a Wise Womens stage and there are presentations, feel good talks and positive vibes just vibrating off that area all morning. Come and relax, breathe and be inspired.

To bring it all together you can take home your daily program which is this year in a little 8 page booklet with contact details for all the people involved in the day, so you can use it as your Eumundi Markets health directory all year.

As you know , we have been at the Markets for nine years now. The medicineroom is a free naturopathc herbal dispensary service and we love chatting to you about your health care needs. You can call us 0409 765033 if you want directions to our stall which is located in the Original Eumundi Market in the little lane way straight behind the Blue CWA hall next to the main street. We have gorgeous products that you will love, our herbal skin balms and handmade herbal medicines.

Looking forward to saying Hello.

With Love Dominique
