James H. Rainwater Conference Center
The Valdosta Junior Service League is thrilled to host Merry Marketplace 2020. This year’s show will be held November 21-22, at the James H. Rainwater Conference Center in Valdosta, Georgia. Last year was a huge success with nearly 3,000 shoppers in two days! Merry Marketplace (MMP) will feature over 100 artisans and boutique vendors from across the Southeast, and as always, proceeds will help fund dozens of Junior Service League community projects benefiting the health, education and welfare of Lowndes County and surrounding areas.
Early Bird Shopping is back again on Saturday morning. Shopping for these special ticket holders begins at 8 am and allows an early start to shopping with breakfast and coffee. We have also listened to your responses on the survey and will close shopping on Saturday at 5:30 pm instead of 6 pm.
We are excited to announce that due to the popular demand for our Character Breakfast, we will be continuing to offer a third breakfast on Saturday morning for parents and children to have breakfast with their favorite characters. In addition, Santa will be back at Merry Marketplace all weekend so children can visit with him and have their picture made.
Merry Marketplace continues to be the league’s largest fundraising event with the funds going back into the community through various projects, annual commitments to nonprofit organizations in and around Lowndes County, and commitment to preservation of the historical Converse Dalton Ferrell House.
We look forward to seeing you at South Georgia’s “official” holiday kick-off... Merry Marketplace!
