The Mercantile

A Place with Many Purposes

The Mercantile is a quaint shopping and dining space located in a historic bank building in the heart of Dousman, Wi - home of the frog jumping contest!

The Mercantile is open Wednesday through Saturday, and the cooler, pantry, and bakery case are stocked weekly with a small batch of seasonal goodness for you to enjoy. You can also shop our online retail store and choose a quick and convenient pick-up in the Mercantile. 

With limited exception, all products are handmade onsite in the Artisan Kitchen - our creative kitchen space neatly tucked into the back of the Mercantile. We work with local farms and orchards to source the best possible organic ingredients across the seasons -  we are committed to exceptional quality and service - we wouldn't have it any other way.


The Artisan Kitchen offers a Chef's Choice seasonal bistro menu that changes weekly and a savory breakfast feature every Saturday. Grab it and go or enjoy it in the Mercantile.

In the Mercantile, you can shop our preserved products, enjoy a muffin and a cup of coffee, grab a sweet or savory treat from the cooler, have lunch and a beer, sip wine and dine, or host your own event.

Artisan Dinners 

A Chef Curated Seasonal Menu

Held multiple times monthly, these intimate dinners around the Mercantile farmhouse table offer an exquisite multi-course chef-curated 2-hour interactive dining experience often referred to as a cross between fine dining and attending a great dinner party! The event is limited to 12 guests that will share a bond over food - "we will break bread and be friends" at our community table. You can buy one ticket or twelve, but when they are gone - they are gone until the next time - and each dinner is a unique experience.

  • The Chef curated seasonal menu is prix fixe - and the "set price" varies by menu. Two paired beverages (wine, beer, or NA cocktails), coffee, tea, and Port are included.

  • We use organic seasonal produce from regional farms and orchards - as available - and couple it with culinary creativity and artistic flare - bringing you a beautiful and delicious experience that you will soon not forget. You will get to interact with Chef Bahr and the entire Artisan Kitchen team as we share our love for good food, conversation, and community!
