DENVER'S HOT & EVOLVING FOOD SCENE

It is great to see the renaissance of development in formerly industrial areas of Denver. Ancient buildings in RINO (River North), and Upper & Lower Highlands, are being redeveloped into hip & new looking commercial enterprises. Marla and I recently checked out The Denver Central Market at 27th and Larimer Street. When I moved to Denver this area was run down and even a bit on the dangerous side. The developers did a great job turning the old 1928 H.H.Tammen building into a fun and vibrant food hall.

Let's check it out.


The food hall has over 11 companies providing food and dining. The scene at lunch was bustling with people seeing what all the hype was about.

I love the marriage of steel and raw-edge wood slabs!


 Grab a milkshake at "High Point Creamery."


 Izzio Artisan Bakery (The same family as Udi's breads.) drew me in to check out their huge selction of breads.


An ice cream sounds perfect right now!


 "Temper Hand-Crafted Chocolates" offered a large and very temping array of sweets!


 "Silva's Fish Market" had some nice seafood offerings.


 I saw a great loaf of artisan bread I had to have.


The neighborhood around Denver Central Market is definitely in transition. Marla loved the fact that Wesco Fabrics had their beginning over 70 years ago only three blocks north!
