Merry Marketplace


For 68 years, the women of the Junior League of Odessa, Inc. have served the community. Our mission is to promote voluntarism while developing the potential of women and improving the community through effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Each year, The Junior League of Odessa contributes thousands of hours and dollars addressing the needs of At-Risk Families and Children in Ector County.


This year, we celebrate the 33rd anniversary of Merry Marketplace. We are proud to present our theme “Old World Christmas” Funds raised through Merry Marketplace are returned to the community through support of community-wide projects and Community Assistance Funds. This year, the Junior League proudly supports Food2Kids, City of Odessa Parks and Recreation and The Crisis Center.


We would like to thank all underwriters, sponsors, and in-kind donators. Without your support, the Junior League of Odessa, Inc. would be unable to fulfill its mission.


“Together, we can touch the Hearts of Odessa”.


With Gratitude,

Denise Swanner
President 2015-2016
