What is at Magnolia Market at the Silo’s?
Magnolia Market at the Silo’s sit’s on about 5,000 acres and attracts over 30,000 visitors every week. It houses the Magnolia Market store, the Silos Bakery Co, a garden, a grassy area to relax and hang out, as well as food trucks along the perimeter.

Where is Magnolia Market at the Silos?
Okay, we know we want to plan a Magnolia Market trip but where is Waco, Texas?
Waco, Texas is located off of I-35. This is a great location because major cities such as Oklahoma City, Dallas, Austin, and San Antonio are all along this route. So no matter which city you are coming from it is an easy Texas road trip.
Waco, Texas is located 90 miles south of Dallas and 90 miles north of Austin.
Flying into Town
There is a regional airport in Waco that American Airlines flies into but you might find a better price at the larger international airports in Dallas and Austin.

Best Time To Visit Magnolia Market
Arrive Early or Late to Magnolia Market at the Silos
Don’t like crowds? One important thing to consider when you plan your Magnolia Market trip is timing! Wake up early and get there before everyone else. I have found this true for any trip!
Another thought is to go right before the Silos close! (shortest lines) Tuesday is the best day to visit both Magnolia Market and Magnolia Table for the lowest crowd levels.
The busiest time of day is Saturday at lunchtime or college game days!
Magnolia Market is very popular so you will see crowds year-round. You might want to avoid summer because it is extremely hot. With that said I went in the summer and didn’t mind the heat too much!
Parking at Magnolia Market
Parking is Free at Magnolia Market
No matter how crowded it is, there is always parking. There is a parking lot attached to the Silos as well as street parking. If those are full you can take a trolley for free from downtown Waco. It is about 10 minutes away.
I really didn’t have any trouble finding a spot in the parking lot that was right next to the Magnolia Market Silos.
Where to Eat at Magnolia Market at the Silos
Food Trucks at Magnolia Market
Food trucks are available. This is nice because you will have a wide variety of different types of food all in one spot. They have southern food, barbecue, grill cheese, hamburgers, crepes, salad, sandwiches, and pizza.
A huge green space is available with picnic tables to sit at. While you eat your kiddos can play outdoor yard games.
Silos Bakery Co.
All I can say is CUPCAKES. The Bakery Silos Co. is a cupcake lover’s dream. There are many flavors to choose from! They also have other bakery items such as biscuits, cinnamon rolls, and muffins. You will have to stand in line for a while but workers will be there to help you decide what the best options are for you.
In my opinion, the cupcakes are worth it!
The bakery is located across from the store.
One of the top things I would do as I plan a Magnolia Market trip is to eat at Magnolia Table. They do not currently take reservations so first come, first serve.
This restaurant closes at 3 pm, therefore breakfast and lunch are all that is served. They are closed on Sundays! They do have an option to purchase lunch on the go at the Magnolia Take Away and Market. Merchandise may also be purchased here.
Magnolia Press Coffee Co.
Magnolia Press is the newest addition to the Magnolia group. This is a cute coffee shop to chat and enjoy your coffee in style.
Shopping at Magnolia Market at the Silo
Shopping at Magnolia Market is the main highlight of the Silos! Check out the wall decor, home, and garden sections of the store.
The space is very large and you could spend a good amount of time looking at all the beautiful merchandise. Warning you may want to buy everything in the store!
One thing I loved about this store is the displays. Really, they are perfect! I wouldn’t expect anything less from Joanna. Magnolia really is a great experience!
Sign the Book
Remember to sign the book when you walk in, people from all over come to see the Silos!
You can always shop online at Magnolia Shop if there is something that you decide you want after you leave.
Little Shop on Bosque features slightly damaged and discounted products from Magnolia. It is located at 3801 Bosque Blvd, Waco, TX 76710
As you plan a Magnolia trip be sure to schedule some time to check out the outlet store. You may be able to score a great deal!
Harp Design Company
If you are a big fan of Fixer Upper you may recall that Clint made all the tables featured in Joanna’s designs. Clint has a furniture store called Harps Design Co. It is located about a 5-minute drive from the Silos.
These cute Magnolia shirts will look great on you when you visit. Go ahead and shop by clicking the images below.
Where to Stay in Waco Texas?
One day may not be enough time to do everything you want to in Waco, Texas.
You may want to stay the night and enjoy this town a little more. There are plenty of hotels to stay at in the area but you may want to try and experience something new. You can actually stay in a house Joanna Gaines remodeled.
A House from season Three of Fixer Upper is available on VRBO.

I have always wanted to visit Waco and the silos. I had no idea there was so much to do. Great to know. Pinned for later.
Hopefully, you get a chance to see Magnolia Market!
Well that was just a fun read! I have watched the show and knew of Waco. I have had friends who have gone there but really haven’t seen any of the pictures. This was a great way to pull them all together. Looks like a lot of fun and just a good time relaxing and shopping and of course, eating. Thanks for sharing!
It is a perfect girls trip. So many beautiful things to look at, and yummy things to eat!
My SIL visited the silos a few years ago and I’ve wanted to visit ever since. I’d absolutely love to plan a Magnolia Market trip to Waco. We love the show, and everything you’ve shared here just sounds like a perfect day (or two!).
Yes, you need to go! It is worth the trip!
Can you believe we lived only 2-3 hours from Magnolia Market and we never went? I hear it’s a fun place to go, but we just hate crowds. We’ll have to go when we’re visiting Texas during our travels now.
We went in the heat of the summer and it wasn’t too crowded. Most people were probably inside enjoying the air conditioning!
This sounds awesome! My husband lived in Waco, TX for a few years growing up and keeps telling me we need to get back there someday. He’s never heard of Magnolia Market, but it sounds absolutely lovely and right up my alley with all of the yummy food and awesome shopping. Thanks for sharing!
Waco is a different town now that Joanna and Chip are famous. They have done so much to make it an amazing place.
Magnolia Market at the Silos offers so much to do! I’m pretty sure I could hours wandering, shopping and eating (food trucks and cupcakes…yes, please!). And Magnolia Market at the Silos is the perfect day trip from Austin or Dallas
It is the perfect day trip! Magnolia Market is so amazing!
I love everything about this! It is on my bucket list to visit the Mangolia Silos and Market! Thank you for putting together such a great “know before you go” post! It answered quite a few of my questions.

I have never been to Waco but Magnolia Market is right up my alley. I love a good market with a large variety of good for sale.
All of Joanna’s designs are so cute! I loved just looking around!
I would absolutely love to go to Magnolia Market! I love Fixer Upper, Chip and Joanna seem like the biggest sweethearts.
I know right! It is the coolest place!
My nephew attends Baylor University. When my sister in law went down there, she was more excited for Magnolia Market than she was to see her son. LOL! I am excited for a new season of Fixer Upper.
That is awesome! Waco is a cool town!
We love Chip and Joanna’s home improvement show and have watched the construction being done on the Silo and Market Place so going to visit would be fabulous. I really want to go into the bakery at Magnolia Marketplace and Silo because I loved the way Joanna designed it. The cupcakes look so yummy.
I can vouch for the cupcakes, they are amazing! It is an amazing place!
My daughter and I love Chip and Joanna’s fixer up home show! I would love to take her to the Magnolia Marketplace. I didn’t know it existed! Thanks for all the great info!
Yes, It is a perfect girls trip!
Oh my goodness, I have always wanted to go here! Thanks for all the info!

mynewnormalhome.comMy large group of girlfriends and I did this trip earlier this year. It was so fun with a bunch of women. This will be a great resource for people who are planning on visiting in the future.

My husband and I really enjoyed our Magnolia Market visit. We also visited several of the shops around it. Then we headed to fort worth for the cattle drive.
So fun! Texas is a great place!
Great post, very informative! We just moved to Dallas and have been wanting to visit soon so this is helpful! I heard that they are working on a massive expansion- I’d love to hear your review on the changes once its done 😀
I think I will have to make another trip when they expand! My sister live pretty close so it is a good excuse to go!
Love the Tuesday morning trip! I hate crowds and much prefer seeing places when they are less busy!
Me too! I hate crowds!
What a wonderful adventure! I haven’t been to Waco for years.. I need to do this again some time !!
It is a cool place to tour!

Everything they do I just love! I can’t wait to visit.
They are so amazing!

Haven’t been to Texas yet, but will definitely add this market to my list when we do. Love cute little markets! This one looks like it has a great selection too! I’ve watched Chip and Joanna’s show a few times and I really like their style!
I love Joanna’s style. I wish she would decorate my house!
