waterSHEDDING the LOVE to the Leavenworth Community Farmers Market

When the Watershed Cafe opened eight months ago,  the small restaurant changed our little Bavarian-themed hamlet forever.  This farm-to-table restaurant sets a new standard in Leavenworth for quality food, commitment to local farmers, and fresh seasonal offerings, and supporting community.  Their dedication to these principles advocates for more sustainable food production and improved environmental stewardship.  All the while they are creating delicious, inventive, and flavorful dishes that change weekly. In addition to these wonderful aspects, the owners of the Watershed Cafe dedicate every Thursday evening as Local's Night.  Everything on the menu is below $20, and even more impressive, they donate 5% of the profits from Local's Night to a local non-profit organization.  The Leavenworth Community Farmers Market is the grateful recipient every 2nd Thursday of the month.

This coming year the LCFM is striving to attract more farmers and producers to our community. We hope this will have positive impacts for our local partners such as the Watershed Cafe, bringing more fresh local food, and expand the access to both consumers, and restaurants. Thank you again Watershed Cafe for this amazing opportunity and we hope to see you all April 14th.
