Denver International Airport, which just won accolades for the healthiest airport food in the country, will have a new place to refuel next spring, when Modmarket opens on Concourse B.
"We are excited to join other local Denver-area companies at DIA, such as Root Down and Udi's, to promote the fact that part of Colorado's healthy lifestyle is a commitment to sustainable dining, even when traveling," said Anthony Pigliacampo, Modmarket co-founder, in a release announcing the new spot -- the seventh for Modmarket.
When DIA won the award for the healthiest airport food, airport spokesman Heath Montgomery said that over 75 percent of the current restaurant leases at DIA will expire over the next year, and there will be a conscious effort to add more healthy eating options. Modmarket definitely qualifies.
