The Spring Peddlers Market will be this Saturday at the Groesbeck Convention Center from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event is sponsored by the Groesbeck Chamber of  Commerce, and it appears that it will be a full house with both indoor and outdoor booths. The Peddlers Market may be a good place to fine a nice Mother’s  gift, graduation gift, or a gift for a June bride. Also, you just may fine some perfect plants for your yards and homes.


The Limestone County Historical Museum will be selling taco soup, chips and drinks at the Peddlers Market.

Also, a reminder that the Museum, which is located on Navasota Street in downtown Groesbeck, is open each Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Go by and see many interesting items.


This is an exciting week in Limestone County as the Limestone County Fair and Youth Livestock Show begins this Saturday and continues through Saturday, April 21.  This is always a great event.
