Fetch Market, formerly known as Denver Flea, returns this weekend with 180 local vendors ready to sell you their crafts. While we will see the return of many Colorado favorites, like Wooly Wax Candles and Bjorn’s Colorado Honey, a handful of new vendors will make their flea debut. From handmade shoes to sustainable cleaning products, here are five fresh vendors to look for.
This Denver-based coffee roaster is everything but selfish when it comes to their coffee. The two-man operation roasts organic, fair trade beans from Central and South America in small batches—and with hilarious names like Brunch Drunk and Get Off My Lawn. Operating since September 2018, these coffee connoisseurs encourage their customers to be selfish and drink up.
This Denverite specializes in vibrant and cheerful textiles. With 17 years of printmaking experience, artisan Julie Malone uses hand-carved block prints to make her one-of-a-kind linen-printed table runners, pillows, napkins, and produce bags. While it’s her first time showcasing her craft at Fetch Market, Julie has been selling her goods on Etsy for more than 10 years.
This online children’s boutique is owned and operated by a mother who had a hard time finding modern, quality clothes for her own tiny human. Mountain Cub specializes in infant and toddler clothing in addition to kid’s accessories. While the shop is only available online, Fetch Market offers the opportunity to see the Mountain Cub’s unique collection in person before you start making orders.
While it’s not a Colorado brand, this traveling small business is sure to bring some one-of-a-kind style to Fetch Market. Founded by a married couple who met while traveling, Nida Lu sells handmade leather shoes that are crafted by a family in Gaziantep, Turkey. Made with five different types of leather and organic dyes, the shoes are a modern take on footwear from ancient Turkey.
Frustrated by the amount of harmful chemicals found in cleaning products, this mom set out to make her own. Based in Evergreen, Humble Suds produces handmade, natural, and sustainable household cleaning supplies that are just as powerful as what you would find in the store. Humble Suds uses germ-fighting essentials oils that are safe for children and small children, while leaving your home smelling fresh.
