City Market | 20 E 5th St, Kansas City Missouri
My ideal Saturday spring morning always consists of a trip to the City Market. I like to grab a boba tea, pick up some produce, and find the biggest, freshest bouquet to take home with me! There are so many incredibly gorgeous seasonal flowers available at City Market and they always come in a wide variety of colors. Some of the vendors will even create a bespoke bouquet if you ask nicely, and it’s always fun to watch them work their magic from buckets upon buckets of wildflowers.
