Want more pics, check out the Silos Photograhic Tour, here.  Then, head to the Magnolia Garden Tour, here. 

Magnolia Market, Magnolia Press and Silos Baking Co are located at the Silos which is located at 601 Webster Ave. In addition, the garden area with the Magnolia Seed & Supply shop is located inside the gated area that is called ‘the Silos.’  This also includes many outdoor spaces for eating or hanging out. 

Visit the Silos in Waco: 

  • Magnolia Market – main store that sells home decor, florals, t-shirts and souvenirs plus outdoor spaces like food truck alley with Magnolia Table & Silos Baking Co food trucks, pavilion and lawn with outdoor games
  • Magnolia Seed & Supply – garden area on the Silos grounds with small shop, greenhouse, flower beds
  • Silos Baking Co – bakery located next to main entrance of Magnolia Market
  • Magnolia Press – coffee shop, located within the same block as Magnolia Market, inside & outside sitting

Then, drive to: 

  • Magnolia Table –  breakfast and lunch only restaurant, will need to drive or ride Waco Shuttle, 2132 S Valley Mills Dr, Waco 
  • Little Shop on Bosque – Joanna’s original shop with discount Magnolia products, will need to drive, 3801 Bosque Boulevard, Waco 


Coming soon… but you can still drive by: 

  • Magnolia Home furniture show room. – Located behind Magnolia Press. From the outside, it looks complete. However, the inside is not decorated or stocked. So, I assume it will be included in the grand re-opening of the Silos, which was originally planned for October 2020. 
  • New additions to the Silos:  Construction is happening now where the former Silos parking lot stood. Basically, it is includes the rest of the city block where the Silos are located. This includes a concession stand, retail spaces, whiffle ball court, an outdoor patio with fireplace & water features, new restrooms, and a reconstructed Waco historical church surrounding another open lawn area.  You can see complete plans for this space at Magnolia’s website, here.
  • Magnolia Hotel – Located about 5 blocks from Magnolia Market at 701 Washington Ave. However, renovations of the former Waco Grand Karem Shrine building will not be complete till 2021.
  • Cottonland Castle  – Located at 3300 Austin Ave in Waco. However, work on the castle has not begun.
