If you've spent any time around Round Rock, you've probably heard of Round Rock Market Days. This longstanding community event has become a beloved tradition. Our real estate agents have visited it many times and highly recommend it to anyone in the area. Eager to check it out yourself? Here are all the details you'll need to slot a visit into your busy schedule.
Round Rock Market Days is a monthly community market event that brings together local vendors and residents for a day of shopping, food, and fun. It takes place on the first Saturday of every month at 221 East Main Street in Round Rock's downtown core, right across from the library and just around the corner from many of our Round Rock homes for sale. The nearby Prete Plaza is often used as a stage by musicians as part of the event.
The market is open from 9 AM to 4 PM and is free to enter. Visitors are welcome to stay as long as they like, regardless of whether they make a purchase, but we're guessing you'll find it hard to resist picking up a few new treasures.
Food, Music, and Fundraising
One of the market's main attractions is its live musical performances. Many local musicians enjoy taking to the stage to share their talents with their community, but ordinary Round Rock residents are sometimes invited to take the mic too. Their upbeat tunes are sure to keep you tapping your toes all afternoon.
If you get hungry during your visit, consider stopping by some of the on-site food vendors for some lunch. These tents and trucks cover a wide variety of different cuisines and offer some of the best food in the Round Rock area.
Finally, Round Rock Market Days also frequently hosts fundraisers and donation drives for important local causes. From raising money to pay for knee surgery for a local senior in need to collecting food donations for the Williamson County Children's Advocacy Center, the market's generous attendees have done a lot of good so far in 2022.
Vendors and Crafts
Want to follow up your delicious lunch with a day of shopping? It's time to explore the market's sprawling array of vendor tents and stands. Whether you're looking for a gift for a loved one or a special treat for yourself, it's the perfect place to pick up something unique that you would never find on mass-market store shelves.
Clothing, candles, luxury soaps, and other quality items from local companies like Triple Charm Co. and Ford & Fossil. Many local artists also sell paintings, prints, postcards, and other stunning works. Don't forget all the sweet treats, bread, and jams available from Round Rock's bakeries, confectioners, and other culinary businesses!
Many local businesses that offer classes and other services also turn up at the market to bring live demonstrations and exclusive discounts to Round Rock residents. Club Pilates Round Rock and 7 Star Martial Arts are just some of the many companies that have made an impressive showing at this community event. Be sure to check back every month to see what else might be in store.

Want to take a day trip where the journey is just as exciting as the destination? The Austin Steam Train Association has just what you're looking for. This non-profit is dedicated to preserving the city's historic steam trains and the tracks they run on. Our real estate agents have been on several unforgettable train rides on their preserved trains while doing business in the Cedar Park area. Here's what they had to say about this one-of-a-kind Austin attraction.
Although they were in use long before this, steam trains had their heyday in the 1930s through the 1950s. They were fast, elegant, affordable, and offered an easy way to travel long distances that would take days to cross using most other methods of transportation. Today, the Austin Steam Train Association keeps that tradition alive by offering short round-trip outings to nearby towns and points of interest.
One of the locomotives used by the association (the Southern Pacific 786) is a real vintage steam train that functions identically to the old models used in decades past. This train even needs to be stopped periodically to allow the workers time to replenish the water used during the trip.
The other (the Alco Diesel 442) is a diesel-electric train that the Association purchased in 1999. It was originally built back in 1916 by the American Locomotive Company, the same company that built the SP 786. It has been carefully restored to maintain function over the years but is currently undergoing a new round of restorations. In the meantime, the association has leased the HZRX Diesel 3134 from Horizon Rail.
An Immersive Experience
Riding on one of the association's trains offers a captivating blend of leisure and learning. Each train features vintage train cars that have been painstakingly restored to recreate the experience of historical riders. Each car has its own name and features slightly different furniture and fixtures. Passengers can usually choose which car they want to ride in when booking their ticket. It's a great opportunity to get up close and personal with a piece of history and see for yourself how the steam trains of the past really worked.
If you want more details on the association, its trains, and their historical context, you're in luck. The association also operates a separate museum at their main office (401 E. Whitestone Boulevard, Suite C-100 in Cedar Park). This location contains photographs, maps, illustrations, and other artifacts that enhance the historical value of your outing.
In addition to its historical preservation efforts, the association also hosts many exciting events each season. Some of these occasions are kid-friendly, while others cater exclusively to adults.
One of their most popular events is their Hill Country Flyer, their signature ride across the Texas Hill Country that runs every two weeks or so during most of the year.
Guests typically have the option to reserve train cars in advance, and both adults-only and family-friendly cars are available depending on your needs. Check out their event schedule and see what other fun train trips might be of interest to you!
The Austin Steam Train Association is a Texas treasure, but it's just one of many incredible things to see and do in this busy city. Contact us today to learn more about our Cedar Park homes for sale, and let us help you find one that meets your needs.
If you're a pet parent, you know that giving your pets a safe, healthy environment is a top priority. Whether you have a four-legged canine or a frisky feline, you want to protect your pet from dangers like injuries, diseases, and poisonous houseplants. To keep your pets safe, take some tips from our real estate agents, who suggest buying only non-toxic houseplants for your home.
Many homeowners don't realize that just a few nibbles from a poisonous plant can cause nausea and vomiting, tremors, seizures, and even death to pets. If you're a pet owner and looking for Georgetown homes for sale, make sure to research indoor plants that are non-toxic to dogs and cats. Here are just a few that are safe for your pets.
If your home gets a lot of indirect sunlight, African violets will fill your rooms with flowers in brilliant hues of pink, lavender, and purple. They thrive in 68–77 degree temperatures, as long as you keep them slightly watered and away from drafts. If your curious cat decides to eat the leaves or blooms, the plant may look wounded, but your cat will be fine.
This plant's trailing tendrils were designed to attract curious cats. Even if you place this plant on high shelves or in hanging baskets, your clever kitty may still be tempted to investigate. But don't worry, it's perfectly safe for your kitty and a good choice for beginner green thumbs. Just choose a location with filtered light and warm temperatures, then keep the soil moist.
Bird's Nest Ferns
This squiggly green fern thrives on low light and humidity, so it's perfect in bathrooms and windows near the kitchen sink. It likes warmer temperatures and quickly adds organic appeal to indoor spaces. Bird's nest ferns grow well in pots and planters with loose, fast-draining soil. When the soil feels dry, just give it a little water and fertilizer in the spring and summer.
If you want to protect your pets and wow your guests, buy a few date palms for your home. With tall stems and delicate leaves, date palms, like Areca palms, bamboo palms, and Chinese fan palms, grow tall, making good floor plants that add height and texture to small rooms. For best growth, keep date palms and other types of palms in bright, indirect sunlight and don't over-water.
Friendship plants produce intricately-patterned bright green leaves that feel like velvet. They're lovely to look at and completely harmless to your pets. Since they are small plants that only grow 6–12 inches high, they make great decorative accents on shelves and tables. They tolerate low light with a few hours of sunlight each day and occasionally flower with pale pink buds.
Few houseplants add as much elegant beauty to a home as orchids, and luckily they pose no dangers to dogs or cats. With tall stalks, large green leaves, and colorful flowers, orchids become focal points wherever they're placed. Orchids bloom each year for about three months. When the flowers die off, the blooms return the following season.
Peperomia plants make great houseplants because they're easy to grow and they clean the air. There are many varieties, each with slightly different characteristics, but they all grow well in temperatures of 65–80 degrees with minimal watering. The watermelon peperomia has leaves that resemble watermelon rhine with distinct dark green stripes.

You've made it to the final walk-through process, which means your long journey to securing your new property is almost complete. The final walk-through might seem like a simple formality, but it's one of the most important steps in the process. This is your final chance to ensure the seller held up their end of the bargain regarding repairs, maintenance, or contingencies.
Our real estate agents receive lots of questions about what to expect during the process. If you're in the process of purchasing one of these Round Rock homes for sale, below are some tips to guide you through the final walk-through process to ensure you don't miss anything.
Inspect All Repairs
As a homebuyer, your priority during the final walk-through is to ensure the seller completed any agreed-upon repairs or maintenance and that the work has been completed to your liking. Whether it's a minor fix such as doorknob replacement or a significant structural issue, remember to inspect every item closely. You can also ask the seller to leave behind any receipts or warranties if issues arise in the future.
Look For New Issues
A lot can happen over 4 to 6 weeks, so it's also wise to keep an eye out for any new issues that may have popped up since the last time you visited the home. If you notice any significant problems that may have occurred since your last visit, this is your final opportunity to bring them to the seller's attention. Below are some common things to test during the walk-through process:
Check For Items Left As Part Of The Sale
If the seller agreed to leave behind any items such as appliances, lawnmowers, or pool tables, make sure they're still around after the seller has moved out. Most sellers won't attempt to skirt their end of the bargain, but it's still a good idea to check that everything is still in place.
What To Do If You Find Issues
While it doesn't happen often, sometimes buyers do find issues during the final walk-through process, so you should be prepared in the event there is a problem. If a seller did not complete required repairs or a new issue has occurred, you typically have three options:
Make Sure Your Real Estate Agent Is Present
Your real estate agent has conducted dozens of walk-throughs, so he or she knows exactly what to look for. Having a second trusted set of eyes is highly advisable during the process. Your agent will have a record of all contingencies agreed upon during the sale and will be able to help ensure you don't miss anything.
Most of the time, the final walk-through process tends to go very smoothly, but it's still important to it seriously and check everything. If you're looking for guidance on the buying process, contact us today.

International Jazz Day is coming, and our real estate agents know the best places to enjoy it!
Round Rock homes for sale are in the heart of beautiful Central Texas, just half an hour from Austin. Austin, famous as the "Live Music Capital of the World," has distinguished itself as one of America's leading cities for jazz. Every April 30th, it lives up to the name with its celebration of International Jazz Day.
While jazz was first born down in New Orleans, it did not take long for this uniquely American musical style to migrate from coast to coast.
