Parkville Missouri

Farmers Market Project

The Parkville Farmers Market is located downtown, south of the railroad tracks. In June 2023, a tractor trailer ran into the north side of the building. Although the structure had existed in its current location for over 35 years, it was hit twice in a period 45 days. Due to the extensive damage, the building was torn down.

The next challenge is to build a new farmers market structure. The City contracted with BBN Architects to provide design services for the new building and worked with Confluence on the community engagement. 

Final Design – presented to Board of Aldermen at April 30th work session

Project Status

Currently, BBN Architects is finalizing the final design and preparing the construction documents to bid the project. This page will be updated throughout the improvement project.

The City has $2 million to design and construct the new structure from the following funding sources.

  • $1 million – Platte County Parks Grant
  • $650,000 – Parks Sales Tax Fund
  • $350,000 – Insurance claims

 

The new structure will be similar to what was there previously, but will have:

  • Deeper overhangs
  • Stone columns
  • Aluminum replica sign
