The Source- an artisan food market

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.

-Comida Cantina (originally a food truck that grew into a restaurant)
-Acorn (the sister restaurant to Boulder’s Oak at Fourteenth)
-Mondo Market (worldly cheeses, spices, oils, salami, etc.)
-Americanum Provisions (a locally-focused produce shop–check out this impressivemission statement)
-Babette’s (Bakery from artisan Steve Scott, who takes bread seriously, appears to be amazing at baking it, and plans to get customers very close to the baking process–literally and figuratively.)
-CapRock Farm Bar (hand-crafted spirits from a farm distillery)
-Proper Pour (a boutique wine and spirits store)
-Crooked Stave (a microbrewery that is already very widely revered for its craft brews)
-Boxcar Roasters (a roastery and coffee shop with locations already in Denver and Boulder)
-Super Ordinary (a RiNo art gallery)
-Meathead (a butcher)
-Beet and Yarrow (a high-end custom floral design company)
-Collegiate Peaks Bank (a local bank)

    I'm glad I had the opportunity to see The Source. Found some items I've been wondering if they could be found in Denver! Sorry to leave early and miss Rose.

    This is a great spot and evidence that the Brighton Corridor is really a growing area.

    This sounds like a fabulous place, but there is no way I can get there by 5pm thru rush hour traffic. However, I will definitely google the business hours for this place and check it out!
