When I first came to Baylor, Waco was nothing to brag about! However, over the past few years the town has really expanded as more and more graduates decide to stay and open their own businesses. Outdoor Waco, which I helped start last year, has helped people take better advantage of the river and Cameron Park, and the new football stadium is sure to help as well!!
However, one of my favorite new additions is the Farmer's Market every Saturday! It started last winter, but was really struggling with just a few stands. The one time I went it was freezing cold and not even worth getting out of the car. However, Emily and I decided to give it another shot because we had heard a lot of people talking about it. We started our morning off with a run through Cameron Park and then headed to the market. Boy, were we in for a surprise!
This was not the same market I had been to before! There were numerous stands with local produce, dairy and meat products, soaps, and even a local winery. There was a yoga class being held and several food trucks which were cooking up delicious breakfast burritos, wood-oven pizzas, and crepes. We decided on delicious pumpkin crepes. We sat back and listened to a local folk band sing some songs, completely content with Waco.
