Best Farmers' Market Denver 2013 - Mo' Betta Green MarketPlace
More than anything, Mo' Betta's Beverly Grant and her greens-loving son, Reese, want to make fresh foods available in the food desert of Five Points. But they realize that it doesn't hurt to throw in a helping of fun and community spirit alongside the local produce bins and healthy-foods resource tables. Live music and DJs are standard at the twice-monthly market, as are cooking demos and free tastes. This year, in the interest of spreading food justice, Mo' Betta, which partners with the GrowHaus, will be adding a second location, on alternating weeks, in the hospital zone at 20th Avenue and Ogden Street. The Welton market opens on June 15 and the Ogden addition on June 22; both will continue through October.
