A restaurant and market that was “hip before LoDo was called LoDo” is closing.
The Market at Larimer Square closed March 17, exactly 37 years after owner Mark Greenberg opened it.
He “had been working through this decision for some time, but the pandemic certainly sped the decision along,” said a Market spokesperson.
“It’s been fun to own The Market for 37 years,” Greenberg said. “I have very long-term employees. I have about 50 employees. I would say 30 of them have worked between 20 and 25 years. Brothers, sisters, kids, people’s children (work there) in the summer work for me.”
Greenberg said the job was like his hobby. “I was just a glorified busboy.”
The coffee bar, deli and market will say good bye via a social media campaign “since we can’t come together as a community to grab one last coffee or order our Spring Fling cake to celebrate the season. We’re asking that people share they’re favorite memory of The Market and I suspect after 37 years you have covered The Market in some way.”
