I finally made it to the Magnolia Market in Waco, TX. It's been years since I visited Waco and I'm pretty sure the last time I was there was middle school when a visit to the Dr. Pepper Museum happened. If you are a follower of Fixer Upper then you know exactly what Chip and Joanna Gaines can do with a space. Upon my arrival I was blown a way. The Magnolia Market is a concept set inside old silos and a warehouse. From restaurants, food trucks, shopping and a bakery the concept was about creating an inspirational space.
I was surprised when I made it onto the property how many people were there on a Saturday. There was a line wrapped around the block for the Silos Baking Co. I was eager to try it out after reading reviews but I just don't have it in me to wait an hour for a cupcake. Eh, maybe next time. The market itself was filled with the most beautiful items for purchase with a rustic, yet modern feel to many of them. After wandering through the warehouse I decided to take a look at the outdoor areas.
On this day, I was traveling back from a business trip in Forth Worth, TX and decided to wear a cotton ruffled dress. I can't remember where I picked this one up, but linked several below of various price points. I had just been in Fort Worth at the Stockyards and found killer two toned cowboy boots for only $100. I'll be sharing in an upcoming post more about these boots and how to find a good pair of western shoes, but they are definitely an amazing find. I tried to add some more options of some ranging from $100-$1000 down below in the Shop the Post section.
They also have a full garden and store outside. Some of the most beautiful roses I've seen and it was like I was transported to the English countryside. Seed and Supply carries an array gardening supplies, containers and is in the cutest looking shed. The garden itself is filled with beds and carries seasonal produce and flowers.
For the Food Truck area, there were eight total and I stopped by Luna Juice to experience their elixirs. Luna Juice also carries cold pressed juices, smoothies, and raw treats. They tasted fantastic and they are permanently residing in the Magnolia Market. I tried their Hunger Hunter booster shot made of apple cider vinegar, lemon, honey, cayenne. I also tried their Beetle juice beet, organic apple, and ginger. Both were very refreshing and perfect for a warm day. The line for The Cheddar Box was also long but they boasted about carrying wood-fired grilled cheese sandwiches. Next trip I'd like to try them as well.
After grabbing a bite to eat you can play or sit on the lawn filled with striped floor coushins, striped awnings and swings. It's a perfect place for adults and kids. Joanna and Chip also produce a magazine (which I absolutely love!!!) called Magnolia. The quality, attention to detail and production of concepts are unmatched.
