The Brookside Shops have been fulfilling the vision for the absolute best in neighborhood shopping, dining and services for nearly a century. Generations of Kansas Citians have turned to the Brookside Shopping District to meet their everyday needs along with the extraordinary, too. Located at 63rd Street, between Main Street and Wornall Road, over 80 shops, restaurants, and service providers call this area home.



In an effort to encourage shopping during a slow season, and to partner with The Brookside Farmers Market which brings in unique customers weekly, we created Brookside Market Days. This event occurred every Saturday, August through September, and encouraged Farmers Market attendees to stay in the Brookside area after picking up their fresh veggies and shop at local Brookside businesses.



Brookside is home to married couples with kids and a bustling household, or young millennials who have recently settled in this beloved Kansas City neighborhood. Brooksiders love the small-town charm of their community that is more than just shops and restaurants, but also a thriving area with regular events.
