As San Antonians eagerly await the warm embrace of summer, a ten-acre sunflower extravaganza has blossomed at Traders Village, beckoning visitors every weekend through June 9. The seasonal spectacle, adorned with pathways and a labyrinth designed for guests to meander through, offers a verdant escape and an abundance of photo ops.

The market, sitting at 9333 S.W. Loop 410 near Old Pearsall Road, isn't just a haven for flora enthusiasts, it's also a thrifter's paradise hosting over 1,000 vendors showcasing a cavalcade of goods ranging from the everyday to the eclectic, as FOX San Antonio reported.

Families eager to capture these golden moments won't have to rely on their selfie skills – a professional photographer will be stationed amidst the blossoms to snap that perfect shot. According to Traders Village's website, these keepsakes can be printed on the spot, so visitors can take a tangible piece of the experience home with them.

Admission to the field is budget-friendly, at $11.99 for a sunflower wristband, with a convenient bonus for the thrill-seekers – a combo pass including all-day rides is available for $17.99, although it’s only valid on the weekends; the petite patrons aged two and under can enjoy the sunflower splendor for free, as stated on the Traders Village website.

Hours are tailored for those looking to bask in the sunset or enjoy a leisurely weekend stroll, beginning on Fridays from 6 to 9 p.m. and continuing on Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For the early birds who want to beat the crowds and ensure their entry into this summery haven, tickets can be purchased online in advance.
