Interesting to read perspectives of City Market from outside visitors, generally pretty positive...

City Market - Greater Downtown - Kansas City, MO

One common knock is that some non-local produce is sold - most don't realize the outer ring is 'cheap' grocery produce and the fresh local stuff appears on weekends in middle of market.

I hit often almost every weekend even in winter - as well as the Asian markets in the area.

I might be the only person who doesn't WANT KC to have neighborhoods that aspire to be "a Pike's Place," or "a Pearl District," or whatever. I'm happy with KC having its own character.

I say let the River Market evolve on its own and not try to be something that it isn't. It may be quiet for an urban neighborhood with more activity during the daytime, but I certainly don't see that as a bad thing.

I'd choose living there over Westport, Midtown or the Plaza area any day.

Agree RM should just continue its own thing but it could use another thousand residents to sustain a weeknight vibe. Delaware Street has so much potential too. There are a couple restaurants and a coffee shop but it could be a nice lively neighborhood hangout strip similar to W39th.
