MARKET TIME:

Our shoppers like mid-market sales, credit and cash purchases, so be sure to come prepared. If there's a theme, feel free to have fun and decorate your booths, bring candy and any freebies you'd like to contribute alongside the market. Many kids and pets join their parents as well! This is your time to shine! Don't forget about posting your attendance and photos to your social media, and tag Texas Trade Days, LLC, too!

RESTROOMS:

Restrooms are on-site facilities and across from the Entertainment pavilion. 

FOOD:

It's strongly recommended you bring your lunch and any snacks you may need to get through the day. Coolers are allowed, too. 

DB BBQ Truck is scheduled to be at our market as requested by the fairground management. They're a local favorite, too.

BREAKS:

If you need to take a break, feel free to ask the Market Coordinator to watch your booth, especially if your neighbors are busy. Be sure to take your cash and personal valuables with you as well, in cases of an emergency. Leave your business cards out and we'll be glad to pass out your business cards when we let shoppers know you're on a quick break, too!

PREPARE FOR OFFLINE SALES:

Don't let WiFi or cellular reception issues interrupt your sales. Prepare for offline sales by having everything you need to reduce lost sales during market days. Prepare with minimal change, a receipt book, and anything else you need in case WiFi or Cellular Service isn't available. We don't have control over these services, so it's best to come to market days prepared. 

TEAR DOWN:

At tear down, you can bring your vehicles back to the park to load. Just watch out for each other and any lingering shoppers. 

ADVERTISING:

Post some "teaser" posts in our Facebook events, tag us in your social media posts and have fun leading up to our markets. Flyers and shareables are posted in our Facebook events, on our Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram!
