Over the past decade, Larimer Square has become the go-to dining destination for locals and visitors alike. And now it will also be the perfect spot to pick up ingredients for cooking your own warm-weather meal, with the addition of Le Jardin Secret to its summer lineup. At this French-inspired, chef-curated, artisanal food market, you'll be able to shop for dairy, meat, bread, produce and other goods from such vendors as Grateful Bread Company, Western Daughters Butcher Shoppe, the Truffle Cheese Shop, Sugarmill and Blooming Fool - all with a mimosa in hand.
The market, which is the brainchild of Jorel Pierce, Top Chef contestant and Euclid Hall chef de cuisine, will makes its debut on Saturday, May 31, and continue on Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. through August 23 in the courtyard of Bistro Vendome. (The restaurant -- a sibling of Euclid Hall and Rioja, has a liquor license extends to the area, which is why you can enjoy Bloody Marys and mimosas while you shop.) Photographer Brandon Marshall got a sneak peak yesterday; keep reading for a taste of Le Jardin Secret.
