“Want to go back!”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Great place to go while in Kansas City on a Saturday. The spice sellers are hard to miss because of the smells. Most any kind of food can be purchased here and the sellers work hard to sell you their goods.The sellers have fresh produce, breads,and all kinds of surprises. Very much an international atmosphere.

“Incredibly Cheap Produce!”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

Walking through the City Market, I couldn't stop saying, "omg, that's so cheap!" Three whole pineapples for $1.00?? 4 pounds of bananas for $1.00?? A pound of strawberries for $1.00?? Seriously?? We loaded up on those items plus green beans, pita bread, spices (a whole scoop full for $1.00) and blackberries, where the guy even threw in an extra container for free. I don't remember how much they were, but they were cheap! I would love to visit during the summer when it is full of vendors, as being December, these were just the permanent vendors. If only I didn't live three hours away, I would get all my produce at the City Market.

“We loved this place”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

This place was great. Went here on a Saturday mornng and found all kinds of surprises. It was a very cultural atmosphere. The bakery was excellent. There were numerous produce stands. The Italian grocery store was very interesting. There were several spice stands. It is very hard to try to describe, but well worth the trip. It only takes an hour or so to go through and a great way to spend a morning.

“Tour the World”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Fresh fruit and veggies, spices from around the world, and a little taste of crafts and cuisine from a variety of countries. There's something for everyone's taste here. Dress for the weather since this is mostly outdoors, and take this opportunity for a cultural lesson in addition to a day at the market.

“Would like to go back in the Summer.”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

We got up early because all the reviews said it was crowded. Not in October. We were there before some of the vendors were ready. Nice clean area and good parking. A lot of Fall vegetables. Will try again.
