The Black Pantry | Martini Corner / Midtown

An entirely unique and historic collaboration, The Black Pantry is Kansas City's first shop dedicated to sourcing the highest-quality products from Black owned brands across the country. Owned by Brian Roberts, The Black Pantry launched as a pop-up shop bringing Black-owned products to neighborhoods throughout Kansas City. Now, through a partnership with Made in KC, The Black Pantry is one of our nation's few brick-and-mortar shops dedicated to Black owned goods. The Black Pantry adjoins our Midtown Neighborhood Shop and features packaged food, wellness products, home goods, and local artwork.

From the onset, Made in KC's mission has been "Cultivating Creativity." Our partnership with The Black Pantry is a big step towards making sure our work to Cultivate Creativity in KC is both inclusive and equitable.
