The Made in KC Marketplace is new and fun and fresh. It is a perfect place to get ice cream, cute KC prints, and the best shirts to represent all parts of the city and what it has to offer.

This summer, Made in KC opened on the Country Club Plaza at 47th St. and Wornall, adjacent to The Walking Company and across from Fogo de Chão.

The primary purpose of Made in KC is to give local artists a platform to share their art with the public, locals and travelers alike.

There are several different shops within the Marketplace and each is hosted by different artists who sell specialized merchandise.

From house plants to tee shirts, the Marketplace has a style for everyone. The KC-inspired art and house decor can satisfy your style and the cuisine can feed your cravings.

There is a bar with several craft beers and a coffee and crêpe bar. And one of their most popular venues is the ice cream bar. Ice Cream Bae serves treats with cereal, matcha, and even flaming marshmallows.

The Aixois crêperie offers a taste of KC with its French-inspired crêpes. It is a small version of their full-scale restaurant, located at 55th St. and Brookside Blvd.

The marketplace will not disappoint you. It may even up your Instagram game.

Not only is the marketplace perfect for picking up a KC-made gift for yourself or a loved one, but it is an ideal spot to hang out, many local students even study there.

Despite it being several stores in one, the Marketplace gives a warm, inviting feeling – it feels cohesive, like each store belongs and brings the space together.

You do not want to pass by Made in KC Marketplace, whether you are just stopping in or you want to stay and have a taste of the place, you won’t regret it.
