Liks has two locations in Denver: Capitol Hill and down south.
In Denver's peripheral Highlands neighborhood for the past 2 years, the Red Trolley is a worthy stop for sweet lovers and those who like to frequent cute neighborhood establishments. The gelato was incredible, with flavors that are both creative and full of high-quality product. My favorite on a recent visit was caramel topped with a chocolate ganache and sea salt. Red Trolley also serves up delicious and natural ice creams and hot dogs for those looking for more sustenance.
A Central Colorado Foodshed Alliance hosts a farmers market in the Salida Alpine Park.
The market is open from late June to October on Saturdays from 8:30 to noon. Vendors are broad including local produce, lunch/snack foods, handmade goods, and various other services enjoyed by the modern mountain hippy. Entertainment can include banjo and other live music and occasionally wolves. Yay wolves.
The Alpine Park is in the middle of the historic area of Salida. Located near the library and just a few blocks from the riverfront and the main downtown with restaurants, bars, and outdoor gear shops.

Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream Shop (website) is a University of Denver staple, located next door to Pete's University Park Cafe. Located near the busy intersection of Evans and University, seating is inside.
The D Bar joins the plentiful bars and restaurants along 17th street to provide purely desserts to visitors and residents of Uptown and North Capitol Hill.
A relatively newcomer to the collection of great businesses along Broadway, Sweet Action has become a walkable favorite to residents of Baker, West Wash Park and a new stop-off for sweet tooths cruising down Broadway. The location is distinguished by an adorable garage door bar, that's impossible to pass by without hankering for a sweet treat.
