(Ed note: Maytal is a Downtown Denver Realtor who knows what’s happening in the City! This video blog series will highlight places to see and be seen. In this premier episode, Maytal discovers the new Denver Central Market in the Rino Neighborhood.)
I am a Denver Realtor. But, I also like to eat and drink. Talk about a unique food experience! The Denver Central Market will knock your socks off.
The Denver Central Market sits on Larimer Street in the RiNo neighborhood between 26th and 27th. A beautifully restored older building is home to some of the best food in River North. The rehab celebrates its history and the finishes add a contemporary flare. This gourmet food emporium has brought even more excitement to the growing River North neighborhood.
Madal Knows Denver
Ken Wolf and restaurateur Jeff Osaka didn’t miss a detail with this one stop culinary adventure. They brought an incredible list of top notch purveyors with endless specialty products sure to make you drool. Start with a cup of coffee to get revved up for grocery shopping.
Pat yourself on the back with a cocktail for all the quality dinners you are now prepped to make. Then enjoy a fantastic meal because who wants to cook after hitting the store?! Don’t forget an ice cream cone on the way out. Now this is a shopping trip I can get on board with!
Denver Central Market Vendors
Crema Bodega – Full espresso bar, cold brew coffee and kombucha. And yes the “bodega” is exactly that. Not many convenience stores in the River North. This was important to include.
Culture Meat & Cheese – Hmmm, I wonder? This display of artisan cheese and cured meat from around the world doesn’t disappoint. Don’t even think about passing up a grab and go sandwich loaded with their shaved meat.
Curio – Because no shopping trip is complete without a beverage if you a Denver Realtor. Whatever you need to wash the anxiety of the day away, take your pick from a rotating list of wine, craft beer or a signature cocktail.
Green Seed – Fruits and veggies. Their salad bar showcases their produce with meal ideas to aid you in being healthy at home. The struggle is real.
High Point Creamery – Ice Cream!! Flavors like basil with blackberry swirl, coconut creme brulee, earl grey with shortbread cookies will have your taste buds dancing. I guarantee you have never seen an ice cream sandwich like this with freshly baked Kouign-Amanns from Izzio’s bakery. OMG!!!
