Magnolia’s Farmers Market- even better in 2012

June 18th, 2012 · 3 Comments

New location McGraw st

I have always been a big fan of our Farmers Market, and this season am so excited to see it in an even better location, with more vendors!  Here are a few snapshots from opening day:

Radishes

The fruit and vegetables looked amazing

Heirloom tomatoes

The booths are set up in the middle of the street, back to back, which allows for easy strolling and plenty of room to shop

Gluten-free bread

Gather supplies for a home-cooked meal, or eat at the market

Yummy treats

More veggies

All sorts of potatoes

Entertainment

Music in front of the post office

The market is smack-dab in the middle of some of Magnolia’s best shopping, and I noticed many people popping in and out of  the stores, as well.  If you haven’t been there already this season, it is worth a look- support the market and our local businesses-Saturdays, from 10am-2pm, now through September.

Here’s who you’ll see (and what they’re selling) at the market:

    Awesome!  Great to hear it’s back with some great vendors.  BTW, will they be closing McGraw every Saturday?  Or was that something special for last weekend only?

    Loved the new location and vendors!

    The new market locations seems like a great idea.  We spent some time their this weekend and noticed that the normal McGraw shops had more costumers, so I think this is a win-win for everyone.
