Have you been to the West Liberty Foods Market & Cafe lately? Regardless if your answer is yes or no, I’m going to give you 5 reasons why you need to stop what you are doing, and head over today.

1. They open at 6am Monday-Saturday

By the time many of you rise and shine they’ve already got coffee on and breakfast ready. Many times I’ve hit the road bright and early before my family is up; it’s the easiest way to get a cup of coffee in my hand. No matter what, I assure you a friendly face waiting for you that early- every time. If you are not an early riser stop in for lunch, they also have great options for you to try every day of the week.

2. They will cater your next event

The Market has a convenient catering menu and are ready to help with your next meeting or event. They offer both breakfast items and lunch items that are truly delicious!

3. They support local

Supporting locally is one of the Market’s main priorities. They set out to support businesses and the local economy the same way they were helped to get up and running. The Market believes in taking care of the small business network, and this is why you will see products such as Galassi Foods, Coffee King, Edgewood Locker, Bud’s Meats, and Yoder Bakery among many others.

4. They want you to come in and hang out

Yes, it is true! The Market is set up in such a way that you can do more than just shop, you can have a seat and enjoy some coffee, stay for lunch, and then an afternoon snack. Shoot, you could really be there all day and I’m sure the staff won’t mind! What is truly unique is that when you have a seat and look around you are surrounded by history. The Market understands how important it is to maintain the original details and keep those historic components intact. All you have to do is look up and see the beautiful pressed tin on the ceiling, peruse the black and white photos they have hanging, or go have a seat at the soda fountain. Speaking of the soda fountain……

5. The soda fountain will be headed out this spring to be refurbished

Have a seat up on the stools and order some ice cream and while you are there admire one of West Liberty’s most historic icons. If that soda fountain could speak it would share stories, many of which I’ve heard over time from folks who like to reminisce. During this transition period, please bear with them but when the finished product comes back it will be truly amazing and fully operational. They also have big plans for the back section behind the counter so stay tuned!
