The Mi Pueblo Market in Thornton might be the best grocery store in the entire world. On any given day, the clean and brightly decorated market is warmly bumping a reggaeton Rihanna remix as shoppers peruse cascading bins of fresh avocados, bananas and tomatillos. Horchata sells by the jug, queso comes in just one variety (awesomely melty), and the butcher's counter has a delicious array of marbled, unbleached meat that looks nothing like what's on display at your average chain supermarket. But the bakery is the crown jewel of this one-stop food emporium. Fresh and delicious sheet cakes appear in the glass cases daily, adorned with semi-sweet frosting and lots of flair perfect for birthdays, national holidays, religious holidays, soccer matches and sexy-whatever days. In short, if you're looking for a cake wearing a Ken doll sitting comfortably in a stream of sugar champagne, this is probably the only place in town to get it.
