May 29-31st- First Monday Trade Days– known as one of the oldest open-air markets in Texas, the First Monday Trade Days is steeped in tradition as a monthly event. In the mid 1800’s local farmers, ranchers, and merchants would buy, sell or trade their livestock, handmade items, produce and other supplies to large crowds during the monlty legal trials at the courthouse. Iniditally this event was known to all as a monthly “Stray Day” sale which has now evolved over the last 155 years into a market event offering traditional selling opportunities for vendors to showcase their items. You can find almost anything you are looking for from unique gifts, plants, farm and ranch items, antiques, pet supplies, jewelry, second-hand bargains, iron works, crafts, pottery, furniture, collectibles, artwork, tools, along with great festival food.
Located in the heart of the historical district, adjacent to the local farmer’s market with convenient parking on Santa fe Drive. The First Monday grounds are open to the public from 9am to 4pm each Friday, Saturday and Sunday before the First Monday of every month throughout the entire year.
