Visiting The Pioneer Woman Mercantile

Ever since her book Black Heels to Tractor Wheels came out, blogger Ree Drummond, also known as the Pioneer Woman, has been a huge hit! Shortly after, her cookbooks hit the shelves and flew off faster than most bookstores could keep them. I was gifted a Pioneer Woman cookbook on my birthday one year and I’ve been hooked ever since on Ree’s delicious, easy to follow recipes.

Recently a big event took place in Pawhuska, Oklahoma, where Ree Drummond and the clan live – the grand opening of The Mercantile. The Mercantile originally began as the Osage Mercantile in 1910 for people to gather, trade goods, and browse. Ree wanted to keep the original history of the building to provide an experience into earlier times in small-town USA.

Here’s what you’ll find at The Merc!


The General Store

The General Store holds the main shopping area. Here you’ll find kitchen goods, clothing, home decor, and more!


The Deli & Bakery

It goes without saying that The Mercantile wouldn’t be complete without some of the Pioneer Woman’s cooking! At the deli, you’ll find a selection of quick meals for those on the go and made-to-order options perfect for a sit-down meal. Then you’ll soon be drawn upstairs to enjoy a lovely view of historic Pawhuska and the glass counters will entice you with many different delicious sweets. For one, the vanilla bean cream cheese danish – which takes 16 hours to make from start to finish. The pecan maple scone is also quite divine! While you’re upstairs grabbing a baked good, you can also get a cup of joe from P.W. Coffee and try one of the many flavors of latte syrups from Pink House Alchemy.


HELPFUL TIPS

Due to its popularity, there’s no doubt The Mercantile is going to be hectic and busy. Arrive early if you plan to dine at the deli or prefer not to wait outside in a long line. Otherwise, most weekdays are less busy.

    Awesome shopping! And the food is everything you would expect and more.
    Marlboro Man was there and he visited with us, just as nice as he seems on tv. Took our picture with him. A must visit for PW fans.

      Thank you for reading Liz! So glad you agreed. The food there was absolutely divine – as expected like you said. Jealous that you had the chance to meet Marlboro Man, he wasn’t around when I went for a visit.
