Gruene Market Days, New Braunfels

As the holidays get closer, it’s time to get ready for one of my favorite seasons, Shopping Season! I love unique gifts that do not say AMAZON all over them, and one of my favorite places to go each Fall is the monthly Gruene Market Days! It’s fun with family, girl friends and even just a little me time! Held the 3rd full weekend of the month, it’s always a great turn out of unique vendors and it’s amazing location in New Braunfels means an almost guaranteed fun time for a getaway! We can still enjoy the river in the warmer months, and there is great hiking, restaurants and things to do when it gets a little cooler, all making the Gruene Market Days something you do not want to miss!
