1. Gruene Market Days
“Deep In The Art Of Gruene” is the new motto and we’re rolling with it all of 2021! Catch us at the Gruene Market Days this weekend because shopping and eating delicious snacks is our favorite, especially when it’s local!
The vendor’s creations vary from beautiful art pieces to gourmet granola and even turkey jerky! In case you were looking for something special, you’ll definitely get to find a “one of a kind” item here! Plus, all of the items are of great quality, and buying local is great for the economy too. Bonus!
The Gruene Market Days will be following CDC guidelines to ensure the safety of both customers and vendors and will require face masks. Booths will be separated by 6ft and there will be plenty of sanitation stations.
Friendly reminder that the show goes on whether there’s rain or shine! See you there, we’ll share some jerky!
