The four Chambers of Commerce in Ellis County have just announced the Ellis County Market has been rescheduled for Sat, March 27, 2021. The location will be finalized soon.

This event (originally scheduled for March of 2020 and now rescheduled for the second time) was the result of a collaborative effort among four chambers of Ellis County – Waxahachie, Midlothian, Red Oak and Ennis.

According to Laura Terhune, president and CEO of the Midlothian Chamber of Commerce, “The Ellis County Market was conceived as a large ‘Shop Local’ event – a way for our local businesses to reach new customers from other parts of the county, and for those residents to know what’s available in our area.”

Sandy King, president and CEO of the Waxahachie Chamber, added, “We have almost 100 vendors, food trucks, displays and demonstrations planned. Whenever it happens, it’s going to be great!”

Jeannette Patak, president of the Ennis Chamber of Commerce, stated, “As we have watched the recent increase in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, we have decided to postpone the event to keep our community safe and healthy.”

Clint Woodward, president and CEO of the Red Oak Chamber, explained, “We believe that our moving the event to March will ensure the participating businesses have a better opportunity to make those important connections to potential new customers.”

Meanwhile, the Waxahachie Chamber continues to serve its members through in-person visits, continuing to be a resource for both local business owners and the community and promoting chamber members to their combined online audience of over 15,000.

Chamber member Edmund Zamorano with DELZ Enterprises speaks of his experience as a business owner in Ellis County:

“We started our business last year and we chose Ellis County because it is one of the fastest growing economies in the metroplex. My favorite part of what I do is helping other businesses find their ideal location to operate and grow.”
