The City Market is a great place to spend a weekend morning. My family enjoys checking out the shops, and having a nice meal. We really like the spice market!

Loved this market! We were visiting friends who live downtown within walking distance of the River Market area. We walked down on Saturday morning and spent an hour or so wandering around the market and walking to the river. I loved all the different local vendors, the different ethnic restaurants, the variety of products that could be purchased. Such a... More

We stopped for lunch at the citymarket and it was worth while.There were many different cultures. Lunch was excellent, the stores there had quite a selection of spices and we ended up taking some spices back home.

My fiancé and I go here often and we find it is always a great way to start our weekend. The farmer market is starting to kick in. We usually grab one or two things when we come to replenish our summer cooking supplies. There are also a good number of businesses in the area you have to try. Planters... More

We visited the market twice during our visit to KCMO. The first time we decided to go was after leaving the exhibit at Union Station. Someone informed us that the streetcar was free so we decided to give it a ride and ended up at the market. Definitely weren't disappointed, there were a variety of restaurants and vendors selling produce.... More

Our primary purpose for being here on a Sunday morning was to visit the Chinatown Food Market to get some Asian food ingredients. This was my first visit back to KC in some 35+ years. I don't remember this area being a place you wanted to hang out back then. But, it has been made into a center for ethic... More

We had taken the streetcar on a full ride of the track to see what there was in the area and saw city market. We decided to come back see more. First just north of the market is a park and ride lot with free parking, at least on weekends. The market was a mix of permanent shops and stands... More
