The new traveling merchant is the only good way to tell what items you have in stock. I look forward to seeing the traveling merchant so I know how many items my crafters can make.
You have an Inventory tab in your city management screen.
You can always check your actual stock by clicking the blue banner in the middle of UI at the bottom of the screen. But I agree it’s somewhat inconvinient.
Explore the UI more, lots of information if you look.
hey there @leetcat… hopefully the feedback here has pointed you in the right direction for determining your inventory levels…
