Visit Gruene Market Days in San Marcos TX

June 20, 2021 5:03 pm

One reason homes in San Marcos TX are so popular is the abundance of fun activities to do in the area. Some residents like to spend time outdoors, while others prefer to shop. Old Gruene Market Days combines the best of both worlds to present an outdoor shopping venue with a variety of handmade crafts and foods.

Gruene, once a town in its own right, is now a district of New Braunfels. It’s about half an hour from San Marcos. During Market Days, more than 100 vendors set up the Gruene Historic District in front of Adobe Verde, a Tex-Mex restaurant.

The markets are held Saturdays and Sundays from February through November on the 3rd full weekend of each month and on the first weekend of December. Hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. The event has been held for more than 30 years.

Strolling through the market, you’ll find handmade craft items such as beaded jewelry, tooled leatherwork, woodworking, seasonal wreaths, holiday décor, furniture, paintings and candles. Vendors also offer packaged artisan foods like beef jerky, salsa, honey, jams and jellies, candy and cookies.

Admission, parking and live entertainment are all free.

You can easily visit Old Gruene Market Days from your new home in one of our San Marcos communities. San Marcos is on I-35 between Austin and San Antonio. Gruene is just off I-35 to the southwest.
