Magnolia and Waco Farmers Market Partner Together
by Mary Mersereau, External Affairs Student Worker
The Magnolia Market, a Waco landmark and excellent source for life and home décor, is teaming up with the Waco Downtown Farmers Market this summer. The Famers Market will set up shop at the silos under the historic barn on select Wednesdays, providing the community with a safe and fun outdoor shopping experience. The Farmers Market vendors vary, however products on offer have included beautiful flowers from Bloom Waco, tasty dairy products from Brazos Valley Cheese, fresh produce from Richardson farms, and a variety of other vendors. As shoppers stock up on fresh produce, they can enjoy the summer weather and a nice relaxation area adjacent to the market.
This outlet for local businesses is especially exciting because many Waco farmers have endured economic struggles in the wake of the Texas winter storm which took place in February. The Market will provide a much needed opportunity for these small local businesses to connect with the community. The Magnolia and the Waco Downtown Farmers Market hope that this partnership will provide Wacoans with a resource for healthy mid-week groceries, support local farmers and businesses, and enrich the Waco economy.
