Market of Hope is hosting a community market day on Saturday, November 17, 2018 from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm at Prete Plaza in downtown Round Rock. Market of Hope is an open-air holiday market where you can get your Christmas shopping taken care of while being socially responsible. Booths at Market of Hope each represent ministries in which poor or oppressed members of society are given the opportunity to provide for themselves and their families by being taught a trade. The goods they produce are then brought to market where they will sell, generating income for the artisans and ensuring a positive work environment in which they can be provided emotional, spiritual, and often physical care. By purchasing goods at Market of Hope, you’re turning your shopping into an avenue for empowerment and hope.
Our markets are designed to be a celebration of the season, giving the entire family something to enjoy while they shop–refreshments, activities, music, and the opportunity for some fresh air and great conversation during some of the most beautiful days of the year.
Market of Hope is a non-profit organization with a passion to see American markets create change in the lives of underprivileged families around the world for generations to come. We partner with ministries and social enterprises that minister to the needs of the world’s most vulnerable, and give them opportunity to be empowered to lift themselves out of
poverty and desperation via artisanship and access to the purchasing power of developed markets.
While working with our partners, they are taught artisanship and given the opportunity to earn an income, providing for their physical needs all while under the care of missionaries and local ministers. These artisan products are then sent to the USA to be sold, giving artisans in need access to American purchasing power.
