Hauling at Wimberley Market Day
Did you know that wagons, shopping carts, and Volunteer driven carts are available to help you get your newly purchased treasures to your car? That's right, and it's not expensive either with wagons and carts at $5 to $7 for the whole day, and a $10 deposit that is refunded when they are returned. For large purchases that won't fit in a cart, we have Haulers standing by to help get your purchases to your car for $10 (gratuity appreciated for extra stops!).

There are two hauling locations at Wimberley Market Days: the main Hauling Dispatch at Booth 6 near Gate 1 and the Info Booth at Gate 3. Shop to your heart's content and we'll get you and your purchases to your car!

You Call, We Haul! Call or Text 512-618-7121.

Do your Doo Doo Diligence!
We recently started allowing dogs at Wimberley Market Days, as long as Fido is on a leash and dog owners do their "doo doo diligence" and clean up after them when nature calls. To this end, we will have volunteers handing out doggie doo doo bags at entry gates to anyone who brings their dog into the market. All concession stands and info booths will have bags available as well, free for the asking.

No one wants to step in... well, you know... so it's your "doodie" to clean up after your pooch!

(The weather in Central Texas can be unpredictable and it can be raining in one place and 10 miles away it is dry. In order to help our vendors and shoppers we will update this section of the web site several times a day the week leading up to Market Day. It will display the weather as it is currently is within the Village of Wimberley.)

"Lions + Market Days = $4 Million in Grants to the Community"
Article by Frank Curtis

Did you know that all of the profits that the Wimberley Lions Club generates at Market Days go back into the community for local projects and activities? In the calendar year 2017, the Lions will have given almost $4,000,000 for worthy local endeavors. In the calendar year 2017, the Lions will contribute over $155,000 to local projects. The Wimberley Lions Club truly makes a difference in this community. Some of the types of activities that will be assisted in 2017 are college scholarships for 32 Wimberley students each year; youth exchange trips for about 10 Wimberley students; 8 non-school youth projects such as Boys and Girls Scouts, Special Olympics and the Hays County Youth Shelter; 10 in-school youth projects such as Leo Clubs in the Wimberley high schools, band support and academic improvement projects; and 24 community service projects of non-profit organizations such as Crisis Bread Basket, Emily Ann Theatre and the Wimberley Players.

Even the animals have not been overlooked by the Wimberley Lions. Worthy animal rescue projects such as WAG, PAWS and ARF will receive grants from the Lions in 2017.

Think of all these community grants made by the Wimberley Lions the next time you buy a barbecue plate and a drink. Think of these community organizations each time you park your car in a Lions Parking Lot. The money that you are paying is going back into the community for worthy causes through the Wimberley Lions Club.
