Stanley Marketplace is Awesome!

If you love The Source, Avanti, and The Central Market, hurry to Denver’s newest addition in the market hall trend: Stanley Marketplace. Stanley Marketplace is a new food hall and open market concept on the eastern edge of the Stapleton neighborhood (technically in Aurora).  It features over 50 independently owned Colorado businesses, ranging from restaurants, to fitness studios, to shops selling locally made goods. Prior to the renovation, the historic building was the former Stanley Aviation manufacturing plant. Their mission, or “Stanifesto” as they call it, is to create community based around the beliefs of sustainability, creativity and business for the greater good. “Stanley Marketplace is where people go to live: to eat, drink, work, play, learn grow, gather, and explore, to see friends and to make new ones.”

Most of the businesses in Stanley Marketplace are existing Colorado businesses that have opened a second (or third, or fourth!) location at Stanley. Some of our favorite Colorado businesses, including Rosenberg’s Bagels, Sweet Cow Ice Cream, Endorphin, Kindness Yoga, and Denver Biscuit Company have hubs at Stanley, making it a destination for both neighborhood locals and for those from other neighborhoods looking for a change of scenery. There are also several new or first-time brick-and-mortar shops. Foodies mustn’t miss a brunch, happy hour or dinner at Annette, a fine-dining restaurant by Caroline Glover (formerly a sous chef at Acorn). Annette was recently named one of 5280’s 25 Best Restaurants and 5280’s Best New Restaurant in their July 2017 Top of the Town feature.

Stanley Marketplace now serves as a hub for the neighborhood, but the planning and construction took years—and an approximately $30 million. Remediation, construction and renovation for Stanley Marketplace began in August of 2014, and while the original plan was for all of the shops to open simultaneously, construction hiccups and other delays forced the openings to span several months. Today, much of the space in the former aviation plant is occupied, and lively metro Denver residents fill the open halls, eating, drinking, working and shopping the day away.
