Our Mission and Values
"The Leavenworth Community Farmers Market (Der Bauernmarkt) is designed to increase access to fresh, locally produced foods and other products of local labor for all people. We strive to serve culturally and economically diverse populations, and bring together families, neighbors, visitors and local food producers to create community and social gathering; to enhance our quality of life and foster a sustainable local economy."
Goals for 2017:
1. Improve the diversity of quality vendors providing farm fresh goods, artisan crafts and healthy prepared foods.
2. Provide greater access for low income community members by offering SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) benefits.
3. Offer FREE kids and family activities EVERY market!
4. Expand fundraising efforts to provide financial support for our talented musicians, kids activities and events.
