Photos: Colorado's first Fresh Fare by King Soopers opens at Kent Place in Englewood

It's the first King Soopers of its kind in Colorado, and it's aimed at luring discriminating, savvy shoppers searching for fresh, organic produce, all-natural foods, upscale pastries, cheeses from around the globe, salumi, prime-grade beef, fresh seafood and fish and just about anything else you'd expect from a high-end grocer. Fresh Fare by King Soopers, which opened yesterday at Kent Place, a new mixed-use retail and loft dwelling community at University Boulevard and Hampden, is, some would insist, the grocer's own version of Whole Foods Market, although Russ Dispense, CEO of King Soopers, dismisses that notion.
