Go back and see what "used to be", how people lived in different eras of McKinney. Very interesting to see houses from different times side by side. Saturday mornings during spring through fall finds a vibrant farmers market nestled among the historical homes.

This is a nice park, kind of hidden, just south of the main Downtown area of McKinney. Every Saturday morning there is a Farmers Market on the site. It is a fun place to visit and has very good lo.cal produce. The old buildings are closed during the farmers market, but open during the week and worth a visit as... More

Every Saturday I ride my bike to the farmers market. I stock up on produce as well as fresh goat cheese, the world's best jalapeño cheddar bread and other tasty treats. The vendors or friendly and will explain their products and there is usually live music. Don't miss a quick visit to the two goats in the pen at the... More

If you're in the area and like to look at historic architecture and browse antique shops then Chestnut Square Historic Village is a must-see place for you. Old homes, old churches, old buildings. They also have a lot of places to eat and they are trying to bring an "artsy" vibe to the area as well.

Chestnut Square was a lot of fun and the old homes are amazing! The historic church onsite sees a ton of weddings each year.

We have photographed several weddings here, and each time the staff and the venue are gracious and beautiful. This is such a gem of a place for a wedding, vintage and charming.

Its a small area where the original Historic buildings have been supplemented with buildings that were moved here from other areas of McKinney to save them from destruction. You can take a tour for a few dollars which is quite interesting and they have demonstrations ( the Forge) some days. Visit on a Saturday morning and enjoy the Farmers Market... More

We are suckers for old wares, antiques and the like and there are some very interesting shops and between the 3 of us we struggled to not spend heaps, fortunately we are always aware of our baggage limits.

Very friendly, wonderful variety of fresh fruits vegetables homemade soaps locally grown honey as well as many organic choices. My very favorite place to buy naturally grown, grass fed meat, poultry and eggs is Rehoboth Ranch and they have a regular spot here on almost all Saturdays. Please note, this is not an easy place to navigate on foot if... More
