Our name pays homage to the former name of the River Market, called River Quay, pronounced “key”. It was an energetic and thriving area during the time full of musicians, artisans and the like. It was also during this time that trouble broke out. A few buildings were blown up as some Kansas City rivalries began. The city stepped away from revitalizing the area until it calmed down. A few years later the city came back in and renamed this area the River Market.
