The Source and Slow Food Denver have debuted a weekly indoor farmers market, showcasing a collection of Colorado’s top growers and producers. Slow Food Farmers Market features interactive and educational programming, culinary and cocktail-making demonstrations, rotating guest vendors and in-store special events within the Source’s retailers.
The Slow Food Farmers Market takes place at The Source every Sunday through October 2016 from 10am to 2pm. Weekly vendors include Leffler Family Farms and Five Points Fermentation, with Thistle Whistle Farm and the Sun Horse Gardeners Co-Op joining the regular roster later in the season. Source vendors, including Mondo Market and RiNo Yacht Club, also will participate weekly, featuring rotating Colorado producers and a seasonal cocktail. Slow Food Denver will offer “Little Locavores” activities for kids each week, plus educational demonstrations for adults.
“Slow Food Markets help build a community around food, celebrate local food production and engage people in the conversation about food culture,” said Krista Roberts, director of Slow Food Denver. “We’re looking forward to giving farmers and producers an opportunity to connect with the community on a more personal level.”
This Sunday, June 5th, 2016, City Pretzel, the newest concept from Rosenberg’s Bagels & Delicatessen owner, Joshua Pollack, will make its debut at Slow Food Denver. The mobile shop will offer soft pretzels with a variety of mustards and cheese sauces, as well as pretzel dogs featuring kosher beef links from New York City’s renowned Old World Provisions.
“I’m excited to bring more East Coast delights to Denver,” said Pollack. “Freshness is key and by baking our pretzels and dogs daily, we’ll be upping the pretzel game for everyone in town.”
The Chef-driven cutlery purveyor, Coutelier, will also pop-up at Slow Food Denver’s market this Sunday. Hailing from New Orleans with a curated selection of hand-forged Japanese, French, and American knives, the pop-up shop will be a not-to-miss retail destination for the professional culinary community and serious home cooks (with a knife fetish) alike. Coutelier’s pop-up shop will also be available at The Source on Friday, June 3rd, from 5pm – 9pm, as well as on Saturday, June 4th, from 10am – 3pm.
Kyle Zeppelin, owner of The Source, said, “our Sunday markets will be slower paced and more intimate than a traditional farmers market. The goal is to bring families together to spend quality time, while offering a more curated culinary experience, aligned with the vision behind the Source.”
