With warm weather on its way out, I thought I’d bid a formal adieu to one of our favorite summer activities here in Kansas City – going to The City Market. (While it’s open year-round, I think it’s most fun to go during the summer.)
Located just 5 miles from where we live, the City Market is nestled in Kansas City’s oldest neighborhood, called the “River Market” area.
This is the same area where we visited the 4-story antique store that I wrote about in this post
Here you find the region’s largest farmers market with rows and rows of produce stalls set up by local farmers.
Just grab a bag (or bring your own), load it up with what you want, and pay in cash.
Besides fruits and vegetables, people also sell fudge, baked goods, beef, fresh herbs, salsa, homemade candles, soaps, and the most beautiful bouquets of flowers.
There are LOTS of spices at the City Market.
Everywhere you look, there’s something colorful to see, something exotic to smell, and, on busy days, someone who is playing something on an instrument.
Much to my delight, this man was playing the “Andy Griffith” theme song on his flute.
Every Sunday, there’s a “Community Yard Sale” at the market, where people can come sell their handmade goods, collectibles and “gently used items.”
The City Market. It’s a feast for the senses. If you’re in the area, come check it out!
