Merchants is owned and operated by locals Chef TK and Emily Peterson, who have a passion for supporting their local community. 

It all starts with the menu – they work with their neighbors to bring the best of what's locally available to the table for a great meal.

The menu is full of familiar dishes, reimagined through the Merchants lens of seasonal + local + flexible + fun. The bar program is anchored by 30 craft beers on tap, and supported by a solid wine list and seasonal, hand-crafted cocktails.
