Farmers Market - KC style

Lately I feel like I blog more about KC than St. Louis. My sister, who lives in KC, is due anytime with her first child, so James and I are trying to spend time with her and her husband before the little one appears! Last Sunday we all took a 'family trip' to The Farmers Market located near the Missouri River in Kansas City. The market is actually pretty good. Mainly produce and spices with a small variety of seafood, flowers and vintage finds. There are also local restaurant's that frame the open market.

This farmer's market features over 100 vendors

How many of you remember the Fisher Price Family Farm toy that when you open the barn doors the "cows" moo?
The skyline not far away - My sisters place, which has the urban rooftop garden, is actually the tallest building in the picture.
Gettin' crazy at the Farmer's Market

Not to be left out, St. Louis features an expansive farmers market near the Mississippi River called Soulard Farmers Market. Open all year round Wednesday-Saturday this historic market (opened in 1779) features baked goods, restaurants, produce and even clothing. James and I will be posting more pics of this market soon!
