Goliad Chamber of Commerce

Birthplace of Texas Ranching

Market Days

Market Days is every month on the second Saturday!

      Goliad Market Days is an open air market which combines an arts and crafts fair, farmers market and community festival.  Market Days are held to relive Goliad's traditional role as a crossroads for commerce, beginning with the 1700s' Spanish-colonial trade from Mexico to Nacogdoches.  The tradition continued throughout the 19th century, as Goliad was included on the routes for oxcarts, freight wagons, and stagecoaches.

      Today, Goliad Market Days is one of the largest and most popular street markets in South Texas.  It is held on the second Saturday of each month, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and it features more than 200 booths and vendors.

Market Day Tips

Arrive early and stay all day! 

Please visit rain or shine, hot or cold.  The show must go on.

Always wear comfortable shoes.

Bring a back-pack or tote bag so your hands are free to touch, feel and shop.

Bring plenty of cash.  Most vendors prefer cash over checks and credit cards.

Don't forget to visit the food vendors.  The variety is amazing.
