Join us Wednesday, August 19. 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 City Market offers shoppers the opportunity to purchase the best of the heartland direct from producers in Missouri and surrounding areas. Before you shop, you will enjoy breakfast at Cascone's in the River Market. See the Parks & Rec Summer 2009 Programs brochure for details.
