Are you feeling the love?
On Valentine’s Day at the Historic City Market, twelve couples will tie the knot every fifteen minutes from 2:00 until 5:00 p.m. with FREE wedding ceremonies. If you pop the question and want to partake in the fun, you’ll have to wait until 2019. This year’s ceremonies are totally booked. Advanced registration is required since space is limited and you must have a State of Missouri wedding license.
Those local to Kansas City have always enjoyed visits to the City Market. City Market got its name by being one of the largest farmers’ markets in the Midwest, and it still is today. The farmers’ market is open year-round and offers more than 150 vendor stalls featuring plants, fruits, vegetables, herbs, meats, baked goods, and more. You can get a list of the local vendors on this page of City Market’s website.
City Market is located in the River Market which is the first and oldest incorporated district in Kansas City. You may not know that since 1857, the Kansas City Historic City Market has been in approximately the same location, resting just off the Missouri river. It was a great place to stop for those traveling west. It has a colorful history from the wagon train wild west days, the roaring twenties, the great depression, to the 1970’s and the River Quay area. Before the 1970’s, City Market was primarily a place for picking up produce, but since then it has flourished with bars, eclectic dining, shopping and entertainment. In the 80’s and 90’s the surrounding River Market area had many more updates and became even more populated with restaurants and retail shops, expanding the growth of downtown Kansas City.
