Reader: Union Station Is a Jewel for the City of Denver
A fountain...and now a farmers' market.
Union Station Alliance
Union Station unveiled its renovation in the summer of 2014, and now it's making a good thing better, with some tweaking of the eating options: Acme Burger has become Acme Delicatessen, for example, and that front patio is turning into a beer garden. And this morning, the Union Station Farmers' Market will be dedicated at 9 a.m., then return every Saturday from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. through October 22. The project is a partnership with the award-winning Boulder Farmers' Market, and the lineup includes dozens of vendors, as well as chef demonstrations (Peter Varkonyi of Beast + Bottle is on tap today).
But no matter how good that market looks, don't forget to stop in the station itself. Says Carole:
Union Station is a jewel for the city of Denver. It is a destination. The restaurants are great, the cocktails better and the people watching the best. For those that don't think it's anything; please just stay away. The rest of us will continue to enjoy it. You'll never know what you're missing.
It's a destination for myself and friends. We go for the selection and convenience of quality options. Not to travel. The renovation to me has been a great success.
