Eat, drink and be merry at the Public Market
Posted on 11/17/2021

There’s so much to celebrate at the Lenexa Public Market as the end of the year approaches. Lenexa’s food hall and business incubator has welcomed three new merchants, seen another expand into a bigger space at the Market and watched as people embraced the Market as a beloved gathering space more than ever. You can relish in their success too — because these merchants are ready to help you have one exceptional holiday season thanks to their cornucopia of unique, top-quality dishes and gifts.

  1. Treat out-of-towners to a more unique spin on comfort food — African Dream Cuisine’s authentic West African dishes meld vegetables, roots, grains and leaf spices with meat, chicken and fish for a mouthwatering, memorable meal.

  2. There’s a reason pizzas and salads are the ultimate tried-and-true group meal. Topp’d Pizza + Salads elevates these crowd-pleasers with fresh ingredients and preparation, plus
    interesting spins on classic flavors.

  3. Butterfield’s Bakery and Market’s expertly crafted confections like cupcakes, dessert bars and their signature macarons make fabulous gifts and show-stopping desserts for any occasion. We’d say they’re too pretty to
    eat, but they’re also delectable.

  4. Treat yourself to a premium pick-me-up during the busy season at Mr. D’s Coffee. Their specialty, seasonal and classic donuts pair perfectly with a full coffee bar. Their signature drinks are made with Messenger Coffee, which
    you can buy in bags to brew at home.

  5. When you’re rushing around buying turkeys and gifts and party decorations and realize you’re ravenous, Red Kitchen KC’s authentic Mexican-style street food is here for you. Grab a burrito for breakfast or lunch — quick, convenient and, most importantly, delicious.

  6. Hosting a New Year’s Eve celebration or cocktail party? A curated wine selection from Napa Valley and Sonoma, a line of premium sparkling wines and a delectable menu of
    charcuterie ingredients at The Tasting Room make hosting a sophisticated gathering seem (almost) effortless.

  7. This is the perfect antidote to a brisk winter day. Sohaila’s Kitchen features authentic Pakistani and Indian dishes like curries, butter chicken and kebabs, exquisitely spiced and prepared for a uniquely cozy culinary experience.

  8. The stunning arrangements in these photos are courtesy of The Flower Market. Their freshly arranged blooms and charming gifts are sure to impress your guests. And their convenient self-serve kiosk lets you pick up your entertaining supplies whenever the Market is open.
