Merry Market 2021 at The City Market

Enjoy festive shopping, food, and drink during MERRY MARKET every weekend between Thanksgiving and Christmas. NEW THIS YEAR: we've partnered with The Strawberry Swing Indie Craft Fair to expand and elevate MERRY MARKET this holiday season! Known for being an outstanding curated craft fair and leader in the handmade movement, The Swing will bring more than 75 juried all-local artists and makers to MERRY MARKET. MERRY MARKET is a FREE, open-air European-style experience featuring The Swing’s juried makers, street food vendors, holiday drinks, strolling entertainers and other festivities.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email so we can update it immediately.
Makers will be in the Farmers Market pavilions facing outward so guests can shop outdoors with lots of space and fresh air. Find unique gifts for everyone on your list while supporting small, local business to keep our community strong.
Participating artisans specialize in ceramics, printing, painting, photography, woodworking, metalsmithing, leather crafting, fiber and textile arts, jewelry, clothing, and much more. Many of the makers are creating limited edition items that will be exclusively available at MERRY MARKET.
MERRY MARKET is continuing longstanding partnerships with the KC Streetcar’s Holiday Jam live music series and The Kansas City Museum’s Fairy Princess who will greet and treat guests. City Market shops and restaurants will offer holiday-themed specials, in-store activities, and promotions to be announced closer to the event kickoff.
