Platt Park has become one of Denver’s most sought after neighborhoods to live in, with it’s charming mix of housing styles, (Bungalow’s, Victorian’s, Denver Squares and newer construction) close proximity to Washington Park, Old South Pearl Street Shopping District, and easy access to light rail.
Once a sleepy street with a few restaurants and retail boutiques, Old South Pearl Street has become a bustling street with the newly constructed Izakaya Den and popular Sushi Den, soon to be built Tavern, Session Kitchen, Stella’s Coffee Haus and an eclectic mix of retail boutiques such as Gracie’s, 5 Green Boxes, Common Threads and The Whole Cat. With more people and families moving into the neighborhood, more local events have been created to serve the growing community. Some of the most popular are:
The Pearl Street Farmer’s Market – Sundays 9am – 1pm.
In 2001, the Pearl Street Farmer’s Market started on the 1500 block of South Pearl St. with 10 vendors. Now, twelve seasons later the market has grown to 60 vendors and attracts thousands of shoppers each season. The Pearl Street Farmer’s Market is held every Sunday from mid-May til the end of October. Aside from fresh local produce, baked goods, and organic farm raised meats, the Market provides fun for all. There is live music each week, face painting, a balloon artist and lots of food trucks. Each week is a different theme, and a Flea Market is added the last Sunday of every month. For more information on the Market please visit: http://southpearlstreet.com/events/
