Food halls/markets are a familiar sight in metro Denver these days, with the SourceAvanti Food & BeverageDenver Central Market, and Stanley Marketplace all opening over the past few years; Zeppelin Station is also set to enter the scene in December. But when Denver Milk Market debuts in LoDo’s Dairy Block development next summer, it will feature one major difference: Every food concept in the approximately 15,000-square-foot venue will be the brainchild of one chef: Frank Bonanno.
