The debut of The Source at 3350 Brighton Boulevard was touted as one of the big events of the summer by Visit Denver -- and it looks like the European-style artisan food market/retail complex will just squeak in under the wire. The new opening date for the Zeppelin Development project which has completely transformed a circa 1880s ironworks building that most recently held plumbing supplies is August 29. That's when at least four of the twelve specialty shops under those sixty-foot ceilings should be ready to open.

"We anticipate Comida, the CapRock Farm Bar, Babette's Bakery, and Mondo Market to be those initial tenants," says Zeppelin's Justin Croft. Acorn, an offshoot of Boulder's Oak at Fourteenth, will follow soon after; the restaurant already has its liquor license.
Other tenants going into The Source include The Proper Pour, a liquor store and bartender's supply depot; Crooked Stave, a craft brewery and tap room; and a roastery and coffee shop from Boxcar Coffee Roasters.
