There are many, many more food pop-ups that have taken over this year, and we’re here for it. 

With health precautions moving most things outdoors, people wanting to support local, and a pandemic-induced growth in entrepreneurship, the perfect storm was created for pop-ups to thrive in Kansas City this year. The best part about the rise of all these pop-ups seems to be their staying power. With growing and dedicated followings, food pop-ups are making weekends in Kansas City more fun and welcomingly unexpected.
