Get your local food/ingredients for Thanksgiving!
The Source, located in RiNo, is an indoor artisan and local food market. It's an absolute genius idea, and something every Locavore needs to experience. This indoor market houses a local brewery, distillery, bakery, coffee roaster, butcher, etc etc. See list all the way below.
We'll meet at Caprock Farm Bar (pictured above) for a beverage (or two) and then branch off on our own to explore this wonderful mall of food. Caprock is awesome- they serve fresh, handmade orchard juices and crafted cocktails, including peach and pear eau de vie, CapRock gin (apple-based), vodka, and grappa - all distilled with Colorado fruit and cut with untreated natural spring water. They use local ingredients from Jack Rabbit Hill Farm in Hotchkiss.
This meetup is just in time to see what The Source has for your Thanksgiving dinner! I'll be checking our Mondo Market for sure to pick up some of their prized quality spices, among many other things I'm sure.
Maybe we'll meet for dinner at Comida Cantina or Acorn if everyone's up for it after exploring the Source.
