Pop-Up Restaurants at Lenexa Public MarketWe've all heard the craze around food trucks and pop-up restaurants across the nation. At the Lenexa Public Market, customers get the best of both worlds. That is, of course, in addition to the ongoing variety of classic and savory menus from our regular merchants.

From the beginning in 2017, pop-up restaurants have been a part of the Public Market. They serve as a way for small business owners to get their authentic dishes in front of hungry customers looking for a tasty meal and something new. Red Kitchen Tamales and Sohaila's Kitchen both started as pop-up restaurants before they became long-term merchants in the Public Market.

Come experience our pop-up restaurants for yourself. You might just find your new go-to entrée.
