With its opening this September, Denver Central Market brings a gourmet food emporium and community meeting place to the heart of Colorado’s capital city. It’s housed in an industrial 1920s building in the city’s River North Art District, where chef Jeff Osaka, owner of Denver-based Osaka Ramen and Sushi-Rama, curated the all-local selection of vendors. Upend the traditional dining order with dessert first at High Point Creamery. Take your pick from a selection of ice cream flights, sorbets, and custom sodas. And save room for the Ice Kouign sandwich, a thick slab of ice cream tucked between a delectable pastry from Izzo Artisan Bakery. Try a classic meat and cheese charcuterie board at Culture Meat & Cheese Shop or opt for the best meatball sandwich at The Local Butcher. Get your caffeine fix at Crema Bodega. All coffee blends are sourced from the finest small-batch roasters in the country, and each latte comes equipped with photogenic coffee art design. Make your last stop the market’s central meeting point, Curio, which serves effervescent cocktails like the Fancypants, a blend of vodka, lime juice, and bubbly poured atop passion fruit pearls.
