I visited KC for the first time this past week and what a find the City Market is. I enjoyed going there several times during my visit from the wonderful international foods to the fresh fruits and vegetables at incredible prices...I will make this a "must do" stop every time I visit.

Loved it

My family and I were in Kansas City for a band compition recently and ran across the City Market and the Riverboat Arabia Museum, The boys loved it and my husband and I loved the Italian deli. We are planning another trip to the market this month, just to visit the deli.

My favorite place is the City Market, it changes with the season. When I have friends in from other parts of the country, they always want to go to the market. This is a picture that my 16 yr old, took of my grandaughter and a friend's son that was in KC visiting and they were amazed how big the building were, the clouds were really low, so it looked like they reached to the heavens.
