    City Market is a great way to start the day! Go early and spend the morning! Produce, flowers, baked goods and unusual gifts - something for everyone!  more »

    KC staple. Must visit for locals and visitors alike, you won't be disappointed! Best days are Saturday and Sunday but definitely best of all is that it's open year round. Generally go every weekend when I live close-by; it can get busy on Saturdays so go early or arrive late if you don't care for big crowds. 😉 From fresh food to the hot to-go order plates and fashion-friendly merchandise, there's a plethora to keep you healthily intrigued.

    There are plenty of different types of food choices. A wonderful selection of veggies and fruits and the people who are bringing their items to market are kind. The clientele that you may bump into because it is a popular place to shop are courteous and friendly. The food at the restaurants are good overall and the entertainment is enjoyable. I am glad I went and in the process of buying ran into some friends at different points of my shopping experience.

    Great place to be with the family on weekends. A lot to see and great food. The shopping is always fun especially for fresh produce and spices. Wear comfortable shoes and plan on walking because parking is impossible. Take the street car for fun and an easy way to get there and see a little of the city.

    Wow! I wish I'd realized how fantastic this would be, because we could have planned a little extra time in town just to see the market. The spice stall: amazing. Restaurants all smelled delicious, and we loved the Nola-style restaurant we chose. The fresh fruits and vegetables all looked amazing, and if I hadn't been getting ready to hop on a flight, I would have been buying up a storm!

    If you're visiting Kansas City and you don't stop by the River Market on Saturday you're doing yourself a disservice. It's an amazing atmosphere. There's more than just fresh fruits and vegetables. There's unique food from different ethnicities, beautiful flowers, coffee, smoothies, spices etc.
