Nomar International Market
English/Spanish. The Nomar International Market is the glue that holds Wichita together. The beautiful Mexican style architecture alone is a reason to visit Wichita. Indeed, the City of Wichita launched a revitalization project in 2005 that included branding professionals, architects, urban planners, historic preservationists and engineers. NoMar is the abbreviation for the North Market area–No-Mar. Prior to NoMar, the 1928 Spanish revival of the NoMar Theater served as the area’s major landmark. NoMar International Market offers goods, food, music, festivals, farmers markets and community events. A major entry gateway boldly frames the NoMar name and icon while the area architecture, streetscapes, landscapes, and color palette create a cohesive district known for its strong sense of place, walkable neighborhoods, and cultural experiences.
