Reader: They sell baguettes at King Soopers!

This weekend will see the first edition of Le Jardin Secret, a chef's market set for Saturdays in Larimer Square, in the walkway/patio by Bistro Vendome. Since that restaurant's liquor-license extends over the area, you'll be able to drink a Bloody Mary or mimosa as you shop. But that doesn't satisfy some readers...

Says Rob Jennings:

Hipsters are gullible and stupid. They sell baguettes and fresh vegetables at King Soopers.
Bread alert! What's the difference between shopping at a supermarket -- such as King Soopers -- and patronizing Le Jardin, a curated chef's market? Will you stop by Larimer Square this weekend?

Babette's, Denver Bread Company and Grateful Bread...

I live where there is no bakery or Safeway or King Supers. I go to Ft. Collins once a month to get my hair cut and I always stop by Whole Foods to stock up on good bread

Walmart's dropped their loaves of French or Italian bread down to $1, but I still think the Tuscan Pane bread at Trader Joe's is tough to beat !!!

I might be picky, but I have yet to find decent bread here... Especially the baguettes, nobody can get it right. The Source bakery is up there compared to others I've tried, but their bread way too done unfortunately. If someone knows of a place where the baguettes are good, I'd love to know.

Babette's has the best bread (and morning buns) in Denver by a long shot. Wooden Spoon is inconsistent and most of their baked goods aren't made in-house, at least Safeway makes their stuff on site.

The original post about Le Jardin is now gone, Westword.

there is a lot of stuff in those baskets pictured that can't be local....think mangos.  Much of the pictured stuff is out of season for Colordo unless it is greenhouse grown...turnips, potatoes, yellow summer squash, melons.  And I may be mistaken, but I don't think fiddle head ferns grow in Mountain states.

Is this stuff organic, is it local? I have a feeling they are just putting produce from Save a Lot in fancy baskets and selling it for a mint.

Hipsters are rich and upscale. Have you seen the price of skinny jeans lately?

these are from small local companies. some people like that...kinda like what the source has going on. I would say its less hipstery and pointed more to the upscale/rich crowd.

Judging from the photos......this is really just a fancy, smaller Sprouts. A true farmers

market should a least bring seasonal fresh produce. Mangos, oranges,limes, tomatoes

with stickers, fiddle heads do not qualify

@becca oh, it's lurking in our archives, but some weird override duplicated this post instead. We're trying to figure out how to resurrect it -- but in the meantime, why not just go Le Jardin Secret tomorrow, and see the place for yourself?

Anyone who thinks the baguettes at King Soopers are even marginally similar to fresh bread made with only flour, water, yeast and salt has bought into a much bigger lie than any gullible hipster. That said, a fresh baguette is neither difficult nor expensive to make. Baguettes should not be high-priced luxury items.
