The community-wide biannual Trophy Club Garage Sale is Saturday, October 18 from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Many Trophy Club households participate and the event brings thousands of visitors into Trophy Club. Every year the Town receives questions regarding food and beverage sales at the garage sale, and other than lemonade stands and other similar child-run operations (which are allowed per ordinance 2014-33), the official response is:

The State of Texas has adopted laws regulating requirements for the sale of prepared foods, the Town does not have the authority to adopt an ordinance that would override those state requirements. 

For more information, please visit the Texas Department of State Health Services website.

The Town does not advocate distribution of food in any manner other than in compliance with local and state law.
