TheBigWonderful, a culinary, no-waste food market with fifty vendors, will launch in July

In the next three months, nearly 150 new restaurants will open in Denver, which translates to a lot of food in our mouths. Some have insisted that we're biting off more than we can chew -- that the Denver restaurant landscape is becoming too saturated and that we can't sustain the onslaught. I don't agree with that, and neither does Josh Sampson, a Denver entrepreneur who's paving the way for continued culinary gentrification in the form of a sustainable, urban, outdoor market that gives amateur cooks, aspiring chefs, veteran kitchen magicians, brewers and just about anyone else interested in Denver's culinary climate the opportunity to grow, grow, grow. And prosper.
