The Art Deco building is the newest planned spot for the Colorado Springs Public Market.
Miracles happen. The long-gestating Colorado Springs Public Market
— now to be called the Pikes Peak Market apparently — has announced plans to soft-open in the Art Deco building at the corner of Pikes Peak and Weber on August 31, according to the Rocky Mountain Food Report
. We've been following the rocky development of this effort for around five years now
. In 2014, it was set to occupy the former Gazette building
. That fell through. Then, in 2015, the Carter-Payne
became the spot of choice — organizers even noted a tentative opening weekend
for the spot. That also fell through
, and Local Relic took the spot over. Over the year since we last reported on the market, things have been quiet until now. So, needless to say, we're pretty excited to see where this goes. Look for more information in the near future.
