City Market Park - Kansas City, MO
Depending on your GPS service, getting there might be an unwelcome adventure. The City Market Park is just West of the City Market Square aka River Market. It is not in Parkville, MO.
Nestled near the City Market area of the River Market. Since its inception in 1857, the City Market has been one of the largest and most enduring public farmers’ markets in the Midwest, linking growers and small businesses to the Kansas City community. The area has fantastic access to the Kansas City Streetcar.
