Texas Market Guide is a supporter of the local food banks! Wherever we have an event you are welcome to bring non-perishable food items for a $1.00 discount off of our already low admission! Vendors are also welcome to donate to the food drive. Hunger never takes a holiday, so we are dedicated to help in whatever community we are in. Join us in a worthy cause to help those who are less fortunate.
We are open to suggestions from both customers and vendors on ways and places to better serve you. Please feel free to drop us a line through the contact form.

MINISTRIES WE SUPPORT!
Texas Market Guide is proud to support several ministries and would like to invite you to participate if you feel led. The ministries listed will happily accept donations. Please see each one for an expanded list of needed items.
In every town we host a show we adopt a local food pantry and offer $1.00 off of your admission when you bring a non-perishable food item to the show. You are always welcome to bring more than one if you wish. Shoppers and vendors alike enjoy participating in the food drive at each event. Food pantries will also take cash donations and we are happy to make sure the local pantry receives your donation. It is our way of giving back to the community and we are delighted to have collected thousands of pounds of food over the last 8 years, thanks to our generous vendors and shoppers. Hunger never takes a holiday and these pantries are always in need of donations to help those less fortunate.
Located in the Lake Jackson, Texas area, the Port Ministry originally began as a ministry to seamen but over the years has grown to include others in need. This ministry accepts the extra toiletries provided in hotel rooms and shares them with these folks. We collect these items at the shows. If you travel and have extra unused toiletries in your possession and would like a great place to put them to use, please feel free to bring them to us and we will be happy to get them to the proper place!

Another busy ministry in the Lake Jackson area is the Pregnancy Help Center. This loving, educational center is there to help women during their pregnancies in many different ways. Please visit their Facebook page by clicking HERE to read about them and find out how you can help! Pregnancy Help Center is a locally funded non-profit organization that has been serving individuals in crisis pregnancy in southern Brazoria County, Texas and beyond since 1990.
Water to Thrive transforms lives in rural Africa by bringing the sustainable blessing of clean, safe water to communities in need by connecting them to social investors, congregations, schools, individuals, and community groups with a heart to make a difference. Please visit their web site HERE to learn more about how you can help this organization. Help build a well!
STCH Ministries International is one of nine branches of our faith-based, nonprofit organization that has been caring for children and families since 1952. This ministry was brought to our attention by Carol and Larry W. who spend several months a year in the Dominican Republic helping to build churches and minister to the people in many ways. We are able to take the unused soaps from your hotel room travels to send to the people there. Please feel free to bring those soaps to the shows and we'll make sure they get to the ministry for distribution. There are other items on their wish list, so stay tuned for an update on that!

We carefully select international partners and support them in serving the disadvantaged and those at risk. We select partners who have demonstrated effective ministry and responsible care. Our current nations of focus include West Africa, India, and Puerto Rico. Please CLICK HERE to visit their web site and see how you can participate.
