Market
“It’s a mini version of Pike’s Place in Seattle, but with a brighter and cleaner interior and more places to eat. At the restaurant ‘South’, order the sweet potato fries with garlic aioli dip. At Wenatchee Valley Brewing try a dry cider from Archibald James (Cashmere, WA) if it’s on rotation. The outdoor “bigger” farmers market usually runs on Saturdays and starts in May through the end of October each year.”

Restaurant
“The Lodge is packed between 11AM -1PM. On weekends, consider eating lunch early or late to avoid the congestion and get back on the slopes quicker. We really like to drive up and snowshoe the trail up to Clara and Marion Lakes (3.2 miles round trip), then head into the lodge for Icicle Brewery’s Dirty Face Amber or Bootjack IPA (Leavenworth).   ”

“It’s a local favorite and can be busy. Happy Hour is between 2:30-5:30 PM on weekdays bringing some $$ and congestion relief. Get an order of ‘beer bread’ and snap a selfie of you indulging/sipping in the cool atmosphere.”
