All local everything: Market Street locations to host ‘Taste of Texas’ expo showcasing dozens of local products

LUBBOCK, Texas — The United Family is hosting its ‘Taste of Texas’ expo at all Texas Market Street locations on July 9 and 10 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. each day. During this once-a-year event, Market Street teams take special time to promote local brands and products sold across the store.

This annual event is an opportunity for Market Street guests across Texas to sample and become familiar with all of the incredible products that are created right in their own backyard.

“This expo is really an opportunity for our guests to see just how many products on the shelf are ones made by their neighbors,” said Tony Crumpton, CMO for the United Family. “So many great things come out of all the communities we serve. We know Texas products are special — that’s why we wanted to dedicate some extra time to highlight them.”

A few of the items that are included in the expo range from the deli to the market, to bakery and more. Some of the foods being sampled include Padrino’s Tamales, Eddy’s Smoked Sausage, Mom’s Strawberry Cake, Market Street Country Style Cinnamon Rolls, Kiolbassa All Natural Beef Smoked Sausage and more.

The United Family encourages guests throughout Texas to visit their local Market Street this Saturday or Sunday to find treats for everyone to sample.
