Merry Market of LaGrange


MM 2015

Who has been naughty and who has been nice? Get ready to check your list twice just in time for the fifth annual United Way of West Georgia Merry Market. The event, which benefits early learning programs in Troup County, will be held Thursday through Saturday, Oct. 22-24, at the Callaway Conference Center at West Georgia Technical College in LaGrange.

“The ballroom is going to be filled with a variety of specialty merchants, showcasing a broad array of items,” says Stephanie Preston, chairwoman of the event. ” From easy-to-prepare holiday food items that make entertaining a snap to adorable holiday attire for children and home accents that make for a cozy winter, it is all here at Merry Market. And with each purchase, you are helping young children in our community become early learners.”

Merry Market opens Thursday night, October 22, with a Preview Party and Silent auction from 5-8 p.m. and continues throughout the days on Friday (9 a.m.-7 p.m.) and Saturday (9 a.m.-5 p.m.).  A Preview Party ticket ($30) includes food and beverage, music as well as the first chance to shop plus entrance into the market for the entire weekend.  A one day General Admission ticket for Friday and Saturday can be purchased at the door for $5 per person.

Tickets can be purchased at the door or in advance (recommended for Preview Party) through our website, or by calling United Way at 706-884-8292.  Proceeds benefit various early learning programs in the area.  For more information: or “like” them on Facebook at Merry Market of LaGrange.
