Denver City Guide: Horseshoe Flea Market

IMG_4833

 

There aren’t many quality outdoor markets in America that aren’t farmers markets, after the Rose Bowl and the Brooklyn Flea Market I can’t really think of any. Horseshoe Craft & Flea Market though fills our local void, I don’t usually like flea markets, sure they have funnel cake and knock off t-shirts, but after that what are can you really get other than cooties? At Horseshoe you’ll find vintage furniture, stationary, cool signs that look like they were on Colfax 50 years ago and children’s booties and leggings so tiny and adorable you’ll want to bring your friends kid to Horseshoe and dress them up, or maybe bringing your own child to play child model.

¬†As with everything in Denver you can expect a bevy of food trucks to fill you up for the haul you’re going to carry home, you’ll want to put the extra big basket on your bike the day you go. They rotate all of the time as food trucks come and go, but, trust me, they will be there so skip breakfast or lunch on market day and partake in some deliciousness. Before you eat make sure you take a photo in the photo booth!
Horseshoe is great and not just a wonderful compliment to our constantly improving shopping scene, but something unique and ours and a much better way to spend your money than at a big box store buying stuff for home all day on a weekend.
