Kansas City, Missouri's historic River Market area has been an active commercial hub since 1857. Today it is home to the region's largest farmer's market and beloved weekend destination, the City Market. Sure, you can purchase fresh produce and herbs, meat, dairy and other foods here, but why stop there? This is also a great place to buy additional culinary items and vintage gifts for a loved one or yourself. Long-standing individual shops circling the vendor booths sell a wealth of Italian food staples, ingredients for Brazilian or Middle Eastern cuisine and much more. Browse interesting house wares and kitchenware too, as well as Mexican silver, or African art and jewelry. Complete your City Market experience with a tour through the fascinating Steamboat Arabia Museum. A true melting pot of cultures and ages, the City Market's atmosphere becomes downright festive during the peak season.
