GET LOST IN THE LARGEST SELECTION OF MISSOURI WINES

Guests will feel right at home when they step inside the

quaint shop and bistro that is Willow Spring Mercantile.

The Mercantile, owned by Jim and Daphne Bowman, has

been a staple of the downtown for over a decade. Walking

in the brick storefront, you’re transported into a world

of wine and food, smiles and great conversation. On any

given day you might be treated to the wonderful aromas

of fresh cooking and newly ground coffee while perusing

over 300 Missouri wines from around the state. Besides

wine, other items for sale include craft beer and spirits,

coffees, teas, packaged gourmet food items, apparel and

other local novelty items.

Through the shop and down the stairs is Willow Spring’s

Bistro, open daily for lunch and twice a month for dinner.

Dishes are made with real, fresh and locally sourced ingredients,

with substitutions available for those with food

sensitivities. Menu items include appetizers such as the

seasonal fruit and cheese plate or red pepper hummus,

salads like the almond Caesar, flatbread pizzas, specialty

sandwiches and wraps, and decadent homemade desserts.

Second Weekends in downtown Excelsior Springs

brings extended hours to The Mercantile on Friday night

and live music into the evening. Second Weekends is a

downtown event that takes place the second weekend of

each month where businesses stay open later and often

include special guests and promotions. You can check out

Another popular monthly Willow Spring occurrence

is the coveted Four-Course Wine Dinner. This ticketed

event features a Missouri Winery joining Jim, Daphne and

guests for a gourmet four-course meal accompanied by

four select Missouri wines to compliment each course.

Dates, menus and tickets can be found on their website,

Willow Spring Mercantile can be found at 249 E. Broadway

in the historic Downtown district.
