Magnolia Market at the Silos, commonly called Magnolia Market, is a shopping complex that encompasses two city blocks in downtown Waco, Texas. It is marked by two 120’ high silos, built in 1950 as part of the Brazos Valley Cotton Oil Company. The Brazos Valley Cotton Oil Mill Company closed in 1958, and the silos ceased to serve as storage in the 1990s. The grounds opened to the public in October, 2015. The complex is owned by Chip and Joanna Gaines, TV personalities best known for HGTV's Fixer Upper TV series. The Gaineses completely transformed the Waco landmark, which helped to change the city as well as many surrounding areas.Use our Waco holiday builder app to arrange your visit to Magnolia Market Silos and other attractions in Waco.
The grounds include a 12,000 sq. ft. retail store located in the historic grain barn and office building, a food truck park with picnic tables, a garden store, bakery, and lawn area. Admission to the grounds is free except during special events.
In 2016, its first full year of operation, Magnolia Market reported an estimated 1.9 million visitors. Special events are held regularly at the complex, including Spring at the Silos (March), Silobration (October), and Christmas at the Silos. Events include concerts, vendor booths, and other activities.
In 2019, it was announced that Magnolia Market is undergoing a $10.4 million expansion. The expansion plans include adding new shops and public spaces to the two-block area anchored by the Silos. Attractions include a whiffle ball field, more shops, and gardens, as well as the relocation of the historic Waco Church to the 4.9-acre site. Magnolia Market Complex already draws an estimated 30,000 visitors per week.

If you enjoy Joanna and Chip Gains, you will love this place. 2 old grain silos are viewable from miles around and are the center point for the Magnolia Market. There must be close to 20 buildings... more »

The cupcakes are amazing. First time I went and brought my daughter who is 15 months and she was having a great time running around on the field and playing with the other kids there. The sweet tea truck is also amazing. The tea is so good and fresh. Also all the home Decor is so pretty. It has given me some ideas when I redo my house. I know where I’ll be going to get some new stuff for that!!
Quaint place with food trucks, picnic tables, lawn for games and relaxation. The garden was a delight and of course the market was great! Could not make it to the bakery... the line was too long. However you can still get the delicious cupcake at their bakery camper next to the lawn.
Friday early afternoon and the place was packed but fear not because they have an extremely efficient way of moving the lines along quickly! All the staff everywhere is super friendly and helpful. I'd suggest entering through the Silos Baking Co. and pick up baked goodies first! You'll fill out a carded menu with quantities and in no time have all your goodies bagged up. Then head for the interior where you'll find all the food trucks and trailers and plenty of space to sit and eat while the overhead misters keep you cool. More shopping inside. Magnolia table has the best chicken salad sandwich on the planet! Plenty of other choices but bring $$. A large Alabama Ice Tea was $8 with two free refills and you get to keep the plastic Mason jar with lid and straw. Most large hungry folks will have to spend about 20 bucks. Bring$$$ if you plan on buying any merch! Still loved it and the wife and I got out after buying 5 cupcakes, two earth shattering cinnamon rolls, cold coffee, two chicken salad sandwiches, two white peach lemonades, candle, salt and pepper shakers, butter dish and ten bucks parking(pay to park!) There's free but trust me, pay! Total was $130 Well worth it and will return.
I've had the privilege of coming here many times now. Living in Dallas a lot of people that come to visit are huge Chip and Joanna Gaines fans and so we make the trek down to check it out. I also use to drive to Houston every week for work so came right by here all the time. It's just cool to see stuff you saw on the show and get some sweet holiday tea from the Alabama tea truck and of course some amazing cup cakes from the bakery. So good. Best I've ever had. You can stop by for a few minutes and just check it out or hang out all day. There's food and places to cool and a give been area the kids and family can play in. Then of course the store and bakery. We also checked out some of our favorite houses they did on the show. That was cool. If you watch the show or/and read their books then you want to check this out. It's half way between Dallas and Austin so there's other stuff to do as well. Hope this helps 😁👍
Fun place to go. Prices were much more reasonable than I expected. I did not go to the bakery. I wasn't in the mood for the wait, which didn't seem to be too bad. I enjoyed the shops and the staff were very friendly and helpful. My only wish was that the garden area was bigger with more items for gardening. Hopefully, they will expand that part of their business.
