Market Day

One of our favorite Saturday activities is a morning visit to the City Market.

The City Market is located near the original site of the City of Kansas and the river landing that brought the people to the place that became Kansas City.

The Market consists of a square surrounded by buildings that hold commercial vendors, restaurants and the Arabia Museum. Most of commercial vendors are in food related businesses: fruits and vegetables, middle eastern groceries, bakeries, an Italian deli. The center of the square is the farmers market. Prepared foods, local fruit and veggies, arts & crafts and nursery plants are usually available. Of course with spring finally coming to Missouri the local items will proliferate.

It is always a great place to visit for a bakery treat, people watching, and many photographic opportunities. The square and the commercial produce vendors receive the morning light. The shapes and colors and lighting make for lots of fun to be out with the camera.

The following are a few samples of the images from Saturday. Enjoy!
