Kansas City’s River Market is located directly on the Missouri River between the Broadway (or Buck O’Neil) Bridge and the Heart of America Bridge. What used to be called River Quay and was known for mob activity in the 1970s is known today for its year-round open-air city market, newly renovated warehouse lofts, and a plethora of shops and dining.
River Market is more than the home of the region’s largest farmer’s market every Saturday and Sunday, year-round. It also features The Arabia Steamboat Museum where you can view the recovered 200 tons of cargo that sunk to the bottom of the Missouri River in 1856. And within walking distance of the museum, you’ll be able to breeze into delicate coffee shops or meet your new neighbors out for a drink at one of the many restaurants you’ll come to know and love.
River Market is fast becoming a genuine and sought after area in the center of downtown Kansas City. Though swarming with condos and apartments, single-family homes are also available for the savvy city dweller needing more space. Regardless of the type of residence, walking from your home to the action takes merely steps. River Market is truly one of the greatest, all-encompassing neighborhoods in all of Kansas City.
River Market’s northern boundary is none other than the Missouri River, to the east the boundary is the Heart of America Bridge; West Independence Avenue makes up the southern boundary, and the western boundary is Highway 169 and the Buck O’Neil Bridge.
