Locally sourced Whitefish from Thill’s Fish in Marquette
(These carrots grew up to be BODEGA bolognese!)
We wouldn’t be anywhere without our farm families that grow and produce the food we are so proud to serve. Here’s to celebrating farmers and everything they do! Up before the crack of dawn with a morning ritual that includes a strong cup of joe and a glance at the unpredictable Michigan weather. Responsible for the beauty of the earth and freshly tilled soil. Watching and waiting for thousands of little seeds to start sprouting through the ground. Caring for the earth as the storms blow in and when rain is sparse. Farming is a partnership with the earth. An agreement to provide guidance through every season from planting to harvest. Through the snow storms and droughts, the highs and the lows- thank you farmers for your diligence, your patience and your passion. You keep our stomachs full, our bodies healthy and our hearts happy. Thank you farmers, brewers, and purveyors!
Thank you Partridge Creek Farms for helping us compost everything before the plate
Our eggs come from the free range laying hens and poultry at BSB Farms in the heart of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in Skandia. With Vollwerth bacon from the Keweenaw, BODEGA-seasonsed sausage from Case Country Farms in Chatham and maple syrup straight from trees in the UP, local never tasted so good! Enjoy Breakfast All Day so you don’t miss out on your local favorites.
Buns, breads & biscuits made from scratch at BODEGA
LOCAL GRASS FED
BODEGA Burgers are made with all natural local beef from Superior Home Farms in Rapid River, Michigan and served on a freshly made bun. All BODEGA buns, breads, and biscuits are made from scratch for the exception of our gluten free bread options. Superior Home Farms’ generations of farmers raise beef sustainably on local UP pastures, finishing with locally sourced Michigan grains for the best burger around. The clean water and sweet grass on their UP farm produce a burger like no other. Thank you Superior Home Farms!
On this site in 1884 stood The Third Street School
In 1884 BODEGA was a school filled with teachers, now it’s a restaurant and bar owned by a local teacher! BODEGA is located at 517 N Third Street in the historic downtown of Marquette Michigan. In 1884, on this same site stood The Third Street School; accommodating 180 pupils. Our drink the ‘Mary McKinnon’ is a tribute to the principal in 1888 and the many teachers who have served and helped to build our community. Today, BODEGA is owned by an art teacher who works locally teaching art to middle schoolers, and her partner who is the artist behind Because Marquette.
