The River Market is a riverfront neighborhood in Kansas City, Missouri that comprises the first and oldest incorporated district in Kansas City. The market name comes from its large open air farmers’ market, the southern section of which was the public square in the mid 1800s. The large riverfront warehouses have become increasingly developed into residential lofts, restaurants, bars, shops, cafes, and ethnic markets. The district contains one of the country's largest and longest lasting public farmers' markets bringing “Farm to Table” right to the heart of the city with fresh produce and goods on Saturday and Sunday. There are several unique shops and restaurants in the area. The Arabia Steamboat Museum displays thousands of artifacts from a steamboat and its cargo that sunk nearby in 1856 and was recovered in 1987-88. Residents and visitors traveling by foot or bike can take the Town of Kansas Bridge connection to get to the Riverfront Heritage Trail which leads to Berkley Riverfront Park.
