There’s a new way to experience local flavor at the Kansas City airport. A recently installed vending machine in Terminal B dispenses not food but products made by local artisans.

SouveNEAR, a new company that seeks out and showcases local artists, curates and sells goods as mementos for travelers. Instead of generic mugs and mass produced t-shirts stamped with a city name, visitors can try locally designed products. Stationary, soaps, artwork and jewelry are some of travel-sized gifts, ranging from $2.50 to $40.

Aside from the vending machine in KCI, SouveNEAR goods are also sold at the Nelson-Atkins Museum Store in Kansas City, Missouri, and a few locations in Kansas. Due to a great response from consumers, the company hopes to expand to more locations and other cities by summer of 2015.
