I keep finding wonderful new places here in Kansas City, thanks to recommendations from friends. This past weekend, I ventured into KC to visit City Market. If you've ever been in the DC area, it's very similar to Eastern Market. They have tons and tons of produce vendors, flower stands, and more. Additionally, they have a multitude of foods to try from cultures around the world! It was packed with people on Saturday, but I had a great time weaving my way around and asking questions about some of the strange looking produce being sold.
Produce here in KC is extremely expensive, regardless of where you shop. So I was quite pleased to find that this produce was reasonably priced and fresh.
They had rows and rows of spices for sale, but the lines were super long, so I only took pictures!
I ended up buying some zucchini, yellow squash, white squash, oriental eggplants, swiss chard, bread, and some tea. Then I came home and roasted most of the veggies and sauteed the swiss chard.
I believe that a trip to City Market might become a weekly thing...I need to find out if they still have it in the winter!
