African Tropical Market 901 North 7th Street, Kansas City, Kansas · 913-371-0061
Coconut sodas are never out of season. In the blaze of summer, they squelch the heat. In the freeze of winter, they evoke beaches lined with loping palm trees. Problem is, you can't just pop a couple of coins into a vending machine and grab a coconut brew. Your best bet is to swing through downtown KCK for a visit to the African Tropical Market. There you'll find stuff to eat, too -- mangos, raw sugar cane, Caribbean spices. It's a whole world away, right here in your hometown.
