Magnolia Market Silos

Fans of Chip and Joanna Gaines will have heard of the Magnolia Market Silos, in Waco, Texas. If you haven’t heard of it, you’re missing out.  If you don’t know who Chip and Joanna Gaines are, look them up for some home remodeling inspiration.

On a 3100 mile, 2 week road trip last summer, my daughter and I stopped in to see what all the fuss was about. We were not the only ones there that day either. The Magnolia Market Silos boasts a hopping business.

Open in 2003, ‘The Little Shop on Bosque’ was the first Magnolia Market. After much growth and many changes, the little shop needed to be expanded and in the fall of 2015, the Magnolia Market Silos was opened. To read more about their adventures, you can read the Magnolia Market About page.

Silos Baking Co.

We arrived in Waco, Texas just at opening time, because we wanted to avoid the crowds as much as possible. I don’t think we were the only people with that idea. Our first stop was the Silos Baking Co. because I’m a sucker for a good bakery. We were in luck here because the line wasn’t too long yet. Yay!

The Magnolia Market Silos has a nice menu of tasty treats. Being gluten free, I always wonder if there will be choices for me when it’s my turn to order. No worries here, as they had gluten free treats that were quite yummy.

It all looked so good that we had a hard time deciding what to get, but ended up with cookies and muffins.  We were very happy with our choices and saved them for our drive home later in the day.

Photo Op

Just around the corner from the bakery is a little spot for a fun photo op. Of course, we had to get our picture taken and found some lovely people to take it for us.

The Garden and Lawn

Behind to Silos you will find a large lawn and garden, a garden shop and a selection of food trucks for your eating pleasure. Have a seat on the swings or play a selection of games on the lawn. This is also a great place for your kids to get some of their energy out if they have been in the car for awhile.

Of course, your main purpose for visiting was to shop in the Silos. A warning for you here, it will probably be very crowded and the line to pay might be long. We found a lot of interesting and beautiful things in the shop, but settled on a wooden rustic square bowl that will fit nicely in our cabin.

Tip: There are cash registers in the front and back silos. We found the back registers to be much quicker.

We saw these mango wooden vases and thought they were really neat looking. I love how the detail twists as it goes up the vase. I tried to look up the price, but they are currently sold out online. If you love them too, you can put your email address in and they will let you know when they are in stock again.

Should You Go

What did we think of the Magnolia Market Silos? We were excited to go and visit, and like the Pioneer Woman’s Mercantile in Oklahoma, the experience was great. Waco is just an hour from Dallas, so if you’re in the area, go for sure. Be sure to set a budget though or you will want to buy everything in site.

    How cool! I had heard of the silos, but didn’t actually know all that was there. Looks like a fun place to explore!

      I was surprised by it all too. I didn’t really investigate before we went. It was a fun place.

    I have never heard of the Magnolia Silos, but they look so cool! I must admit I would head for the bakery too, but would love to have a mooch around all the market too.

      It was fun to visit. I’ve watched quite a few episodes of their tv show.

    We have one of these where I live but its free to get in. You can always find great food and unique gifts at a place like this.

      This one is free to get in, the nice things they sell are high quality, so a little expensive.

    Love finding places like this. They are so quirky. Not heard of this one, but as maybe in the vicinity later this year, I shall save this post. Those mango wood vases are gorgeous.

      I hope you’re able to stop in. Check their website before you go, as they are closed now for the Covid issues. I love those vases too.

    This looks like a lovely day trip! I’ll admit I was one of the people who had to google Chip and Joanna Gaines (not sure we have Fixer Upper in Australia). Silos Baking Co. looks delish and how great that they had nice gluten-free options. The lawn games are a fun idea too 🙂

    • Reply ppadmin May 18, 2020 at 12:43 pm

      You can watch their shows with the HGTV app, if you can get that in Australia. The bakery was my favorite place for sure.

    The Magnolia Market Silos looks like a great place to have weekend fun with family. I love the fresh produce and good to know that they have gluten free options too. Those mango wooden vases too look very interesting to purchase from here.

      It was fun and that bakery was quite delicious. I’m a sucker for a great pastry.

    To be honest, I have not heard of Magnolia Market Silos and also about Chip and Joanna Gaines. However, the place looks quite interesting. The bustling markets, the Silos Bakery all looks quite a great place for a day outing. And then you can buy some good stuffs there. The mango wood vases look quite pretty.

        It was a fun visit and we were glad we were able to go. We like their show, so it was neat to see what they talked about making on their website.

      I think they might be a US phenomenon honestly. Their market was fun to visit though. We loved the vase, but we had a budget in both room and money.
