🌻 Sunflower Picking
Visitors can pick their own sunflowers on a pay-per-flower picking path (try saying that five times fast) and bring home a locally-sourced bouquet.
- Prices are based on flower heads (not per branch).
- Pro tip: $10 for 3-5 sunflowers gets you the most bang for your buck.
- An apple cannon will also be available on the path with varying prices for 5-10 shots.
🌻 More than just flowers
Spanning 100+ acres, Traders Village boasts a massive flea market, carnival rides, and many food stalls. Here are a few places to hit up before you leave:
- From bizarre finds to unique thrifts, there’s never a dull moment exploring the market’s hundreds of local vendors.
- We recommend stopping by the Dinosaur George Museum for real-life fossils or The Pretty Duckling, the largest rubber duck store in Texas.
- If you’re a thrill-seeker, hop on the many rides on the market grounds like Pharaoh’s Fury, The Fleafall, and Star Dancer.
- Keep an eye out for food stands selling carnival snacks (Think: turkey legs, corn dogs, and funnel cakes), or head over to the food hall for authentic street tacos.
