Bucket List Trip: Magnolia Market

The endlessly charming Magnolia Market at the Silos in Waco, Texas is the perfect spot for a quick family getaway! Fans of HGTV’s Fixer Upper likely remember this as the ultimate challenge for Chip and Joanna Gaines, who acquired the two-and-a-half acre Waco property complete with two grain silos and a 20,000 square foot barn. The couple recently announced their expansion plans for the Silos grounds, with a vision of “a place that encourages people to see and create beauty in their everyday lives.”

Since 2015, fans have flocked to the property’s flagship retail store, and it’s easy to see why. The Magnolia Market features an impressive assortment of home goods, including gorgeous rugs, elegant cutlery, trendy pillows and a ton of other items you didn’t know you needed like this acrylic wall organizer or this adorable wall clock. Browsing Magnolia Market is like taking a VIP tour of the Gaines’ lifestyle and your whole family is guaranteed to find something of interest. After you’ve shopped until you’ve dropped, grab a latte at Magnolia Press Coffee, dine at Magnolia Table or treat yourself to a cupcake or cinnamon roll at Silos Baking Co.

The yards of Magnolia Market at the Silos is just as worthy of an attraction as the shopping itself. Perch yourself on one of the picnic tables and sample from one of the countless food trucks, which offer gourmet popcorn, BBQ, pizza, hot dogs, and more! If you really want to treat yourself at an overnight stay, you can’t do better than a stay at one of the property’s three houses, two of which were featured on Fixer Upper!
