The resurgence of urban food markets
Urban food markets are having a moment. Following the August 2013 opening of The Source in River North, this year will see the opening of two new urban food markets – The Central Market at 2669 Larimer St., and Stanley Marketplace at 2501 Dallas St., in Aurora. Additionally, The Source’s marketplace is adding 20,000 square feet of space along with a 7,000-sf roof-deck beer garden and pool, as well as a 100-key connected hotel.
