Businesses are thriving in the Source, the RiNo urban artisan market. Babette's Artisan Breads, butcher shop MEATHEAD, produce purveyor Americanum Provisions, florist Beet & Yarrow, and sour beer maker Crooked Stave Artisans are officially open for business. Comida and Mondo Market, two of The Source's first openings, are getting into the groove, and Acorn continues to receive recognition for its noteworthy chefs and bartenders while gearing up to soon open for lunch. The CapRock Farm Bar's is open daily starting at 4 p.m. and new cocktails have already been added to the mix, some that include a new CapRock spirit— a white whiskey.
A week ago, Boxcar Coffee Roasters started brewing at the Source, and specialty coffee drinks are available along whole beans to-go. In coming weeks, Boxcar will build its new boilermaker from scratch and implement its cowboy coffee roasting system that's become popular at its Boulder and at its other Denver location just across the river on the Taxi campus. Boxcar will also move all of its production equipment, including its refurbished 1930's German coffee roaster, into its very open space at the Source, allowing guests of the market to experience the process of roasting more closely.
Mondo Market begins selling the Congress Park neighborhood favorite Glaze Baum Cakes today.
Still in progress at the Source is Proper Pour, a highly curated wine and spirits shop that will offer wine cellar locker storage space for rent.
