Readers Recommend Two Hot Food Spots — at Civic Center and the DTC — for a Hot Summer Day

A beautiful summer day is the perfect time to visit one of this town's hot outdoor food spots. Foodies is a new farmers' market that debuted this year at Belleview Station by the Denver Tech Center; it runs every Thursday from 3:30 to 7 p.m., and returns on Sunday. The market quickly earned grateful fans in the south suburbs, including Linda, who says: 
Great place to bring your family or meet with friends. Variety means everyone can enjoy what they want to eat or take home — there's something for everyone. It's like a local festival. I loved it! 
In the heart of the city, Civic Center Eats, now in its eleventh year, is still going strong, with food trucks rolling in every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 11 a.m. By now, Civic Center Eats is a civic institution, one with plenty of regulars. Says Alex:
Will probably be going weekly, if not multiple times a week. Really great event.
Plan your day right, and you can hit both. What's your favorite outdoor food spot? See our photos of Foodies here.
