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 170 booths and vendors.
