There’s no place like hodgepodge fair trade market and gathering company. An inviting, comfortable, nostalgic, and unique shopping experience tucked away in a neighborhood just north of the courthouse square and down the road from the city park. Owned and operated by Jason and Jennifer Hagan, hodgepodge’s name is an accurate description of the many ventures that the business features including local and fair trade gifts and consumables, gourmet coffee, food, wine, live entertainment and more. hodgepodge has a historical connection. The home built in the late 1800’s lodged many workers, families, and owners of the cotton gin once located on the property on which Dairy Queen now sits. Sometime in the fifties, the property was purchased by Harold and Georgia Ludwig and served as the family's home until their passing. The property was left to Anthony (a son) and Cheryl Ludwig and purchased by Jason and Jennifer Hagan in 2013. hodgepodge opened its doors in 2016.

Verna Brunner joined the venture and currently coordinates the retail portion of the business. hodgepodge has grown and employs the following staff members: Bobbie-Rae Hines Burnes, chef; Mindy DeLaRosa, barista; Troy Hines, entertainment coordinator/bartender; James Ludwig, bartender. Many friends and family members can also be seen on the premises volunteering their time and extending a helping hand when necessary.

Since inception hodgepodge is proud to have showcased over 20 local entertainers, welcomed 10 gourmet food trucks, and hosted and supported many onsite and local events including painting instruction, craft parties, safety classes and cooking  demonstrations. hodgepodge’s menu is one of a kind. Patrons have a choice of the day’s soup, salad, sandwich or a combination of the three. Meals can be as ordinary as chicken noodle soup or as unusual as an open-faced egg sandwich on waffle, and let’s not forget dessert which is hardly optional- our gourmet stuffed cupcake of the day. Regardless of how ordinary or unusual, customers always enjoy the culinary creations at hodgepodge and are never disappointed.  hodgepodge also proudly trades with an extensive list of local partners including: Majek Vineyard & Winery, San Ducerro Vineyard & Winery, Olive View Ranch, Lira Rossa Artisan Cheese, 2 Gringos Chupacabra, No Le Hace Salsa, Janak’s Country Market, Boswell Farms, and Southern Sweets by Bobbie Rae.

hodgepodge is open Tuesday- Friday from 9am until 6pm, Thursday’s from 9 am until 8 pm, and the 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month from 4pm until 8 pm and is located at 400 North LaGrange Street in Hallettsville, Texas 77964.
