31 Finds and Flavors of Kansas City

Who knew May had so many quirky holidays?  KC Source Link along with Shop Local Alliance has created a fun program to help Kansas Citians get to know the small businesses that make and sell local. 

Each day in May, they will share the stories of Kansas City entrepreneurs. Find them in the Entrepeneurs in Action of the KC Source Link website. 

If you are an aspiring entrepreneur or maker, we know that you will find inspiration in the stories of these local entrepreneurs.  The following is the calendar for the month.  If you know any of these businesses please help to share on social media by using #shoplocalkc.  Check out those that you don't know, we are confident that you will not only have fun but be impressed by the small businesses that support our local economy.  Businesses marked with a * are part of our Handmade in Kansas City team.
