Give a little, Help a lot

Most farmers markets across the country are non-profits, functioning by the generosity of those that appreciate its services and believe in its role in the community.  The Leavenworth Community Farmers Market's mission is 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.

If you believe in our mission and feel that the LCFM improves your quality of life and has a positive impact on the Leavenworth Community, become a Friend of the Market and help us expand our programs, events and support for local agriculture and quality crafts.  

Help us seed life into our future!

Local-Yocal Night at the Watershed Cafe Tomorrow

Just a friendly reminder that at tomorrow's Thursday Local's Night at the Watershed Cafe, 5% of their profits will be donated to the Leavenworth Community Farmers Market!  This generous donation helps cover operating expenses, marketing and promotion, educational activities and outreach for farmers and vendors.  

This year we are excited to be expanding our market by increasing the number of prepared food vendors, crafters and farmers.  

If interested in vending at this year's Leavenworth farmers market, check out our vendor applications at: http://leavenworthfarmersmarket.org/vendors/

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.

 

Helping Hands Lend a Hand

Helping Hands Lend a Hand

We can not thank the WSFMA and the Helping Hand’s Grant enough for creating this opportunity.  The information gained from the conference will greatly influence our planning for this upcoming season in ways we hope will improve the overall market’s success.
