Local Gifts, Take & Bake, and Cocoa Bombs!

Zesty Moose & Shiras Winery

Stop by the Zesty Moose where you can find fabulous foodie gifts while sipping local wine. This is how holiday shopping should be! The Marketplace has the largest downtown selection of specialty foods, handmade gifts, and accessories, featuring local artists and Colorado wines.  Support local makers and shop for unique handcrafted items in a comfortable and historical space with exposed brick walls and original wood beams.  Zesty Moose owner, Diana Tap, would love to tell you about the building’s history, so stop by and meet her! Be sure to also ask Diana about their olive oil selection. It is harvested from an estate with over 500 acres of olive trees in Northern California. This olive oil estate is the most awarded extra virgin olive oil in the United States. Stop by to try unlimited samples – you’ll taste the difference!
