A photo tour of the Cherry Creek Fresh Market
I spent Saturday morning meandering around the Cherry Creek Fresh Market -- a market, frankly, that I've never been terribly fond of, mainly because much of the produce is unseasonal and trucked in from outside state lines, plus I was tired of seeing vendors pimping acres of dried pasta, soaps and candles and other overpriced fillers. I'm still not enamored with the market -- my favorites are the Boulder Farmers' Market, Denver Urban Homesteading and the Vail Farmers' Market -- but it wasn't a waste of an hour, either. And I definitely didn't leave hungry. Herewith, the best local food finds.
Waffle Cakes, which started in Longmont, just recently tapped into the Denver market, and the scratch-made waffles -- there are dozens of them -- come crowned with everything from fresh fruit to ham and bacon.
