Why locals love it
A brick foundry from the 1880's houses this epicurean market boasting Denver's densest concentration of artisan food, beer, liquor and designer goods. Standout occupants include Crooked Stave, a cultish brewery specialzing in funky and sour beers, Comida, a modern taqueria with buenisimas margaritas and Babette's cloud-like baguettes.
Why you should visit it
The Source epitomizes the soul of the surrounding RiNo district. Recently wrought by industrial blight, entrepreneurs have ingeniously repurposed abandoned buildings and scrap materials to ressurect the neighborhood as the city's new artistic hub. Not only a one-stop shop for all things gourmet, the Source is also a captivating architectural space.
The location isn't within walking distance of most urban areas, so it's best to assign a designated driver.
