Blackbelly Market – Boulder, CO
Hosea Rosenberg began with a catering company, later adding a food truck, and now has opened Blackbelly Market, which serves as his home base and has a kitchen that can handle all of his projects.
The idea for Blackbelly Market, Rosenberg’s first restaurant, was to produce food from the source to the plate without the middlemen. He began by raising his own livestock, then added a greenhouse where his team can grow their own supply of organic vegetables. The restaurant is coupled with a retail market, curing room and space to focus on whole-animal butchery.
