You might be surprised to find a small cafe inside Fooducopia’s Corner Store. But get to know the Washington Park spot and you’ll come to understand the synergy between the two entities. The market’s meticulously sourced items on the shelves and in the produce bins are the same ingredients that make up the cafe’s dishes. Those gorgeous, wild mushrooms? They’re sautéed and folded, along with goat cheese, into a fluffy omelet. That jar of locally made blueberry-rhubarb preserves? The heavenly blend is what fills the jam pot that comes with your 10-grain toast. Oh, and should you want to buy a loaf of that bread or a dozen of those farm-fresh eggs—they’re all right there in the next room. 1939 E. Kentucky Ave., 303-772-7838, cornerstorefood.com
