Wimberly Market Days

March 07, 2018

Whether it's antiques, plants, accessories, fashion, art, food, you name it, they got it all. Wimberley hosts the oldest outdoor market in the Texas Hill Country. It is the second-largest in the state. They feature over 475 booths of everything you can think off. Now, that's a lot!

Me and my church friends blocked our weekend to go and see the stalls at Wimberly Market Days. It is an hour drive south of Austin. The drive didn't go on smoothly on the way, few of us experienced motion sickness including myself. Oh no, are we still able to enjoy our visit at Wimberly?

What to Expect

Expect to get stuck in traffic leading to the area. People from all over Texas come to Market Days. Despite this, there are lots of parking spaces located across the road from Market Day gates 2 and 3. Parking costs $5.

Admission to Market Days is FREE. It is held every first Saturday of the month from March - December. 

Be sure to bring cash. Most vendors won't accept debit/credit cards. If you forget to prepare in advance, there's an ATM machine located at the entrance of gate 2.

Check out the crowd! While enjoying lunch, we were serenaded with live music in the background. I got me sliced brisket and beans for lunch. I paid $10 USD. Food is okay.

Back to the Motion Sickness Story 

Surprisingly, those few of us who got motion sickness recovered quickly by checking out the booths. Haha. There's always something that catches the eye! 

Most of the stalls sell vintage items. I got me this small vintage art for $4 USD and a onesie for my little guy for $12 USD. It looks so nice in my wall. There it is, the one with a gold frame.

Yes, there's a lot of walking involved, it's fun nonetheless. This is a great way to get exercise from living a sedentary lifestyle. That, I'm guilty too. Haha.

Unfortunately, we weren't able to see everything. That place is humongous! I'm not sure if you can haggle either.

We did enjoy our time at Wimberly Market Days despite the little inconvenience, a few of us felt, on the way there. I'd say it's a nice way to spend the weekend with friends or family. Have an awesome day then. ;)
