Slow Food Denver in the News

Slow Food was recognized in 5280 for the arrival of Slow Food Nations this coming July, 2017 in Denver, Colorado. Faison notes, “The hope is that, through a dedicated web or farmers, artisans, chefs, and citizens, the world will begin to see the United States as a country with an eye toward fixing and reclaiming our food system.” The article also adds, “This is not a preachy, sterile event held inside a bubble of sterile conference rooms, rather Slow Food Nations will be as much a conversation about real food as it will be a celebration of Denver.” To check out the full article, click on the image below.

Last, but not least, the Denver Eater mentioned the market in their June article about the new Farmers Markets popping up in Denver. The Eater added the Slow Food Farmers market at the Source to the diversity of markets showing up in the area. The article stated, “A growing variety in Denver’s farmers markets is a fantastic new fixture, both for the local vendors, and for the consumers – bringing the best produce and local goods that Colorado has to offer straight to market and to our kitchens.” To check out the full article, click on the image below.
