The Market at The Kitchen warrants guarded praise for paleo eats

The Market hosts different vendors, including Progressive Paleo, Clean-N-Jerky snacks and Juanitas Pepitas. Progressive Paleo runs the self-serve hot and cold bars as well as the bakery, so we wind up primarily patronizing them for lunch. We pack a 16-ounce container with chicken and green chili stew for a steep $11.40. While the price smarts, it’s our favorite, bearing big, tender pieces of chicken, with a strong flavor and pleasant heat level from Pueblo chilies. Cubes of turnip chew sweet and tender. Price aside, it’s damn good.

We offer more guarded praise for a chorizo and “cheddar” pot pie ($6.99). The crust’s fine, but the filling mixes real meat chorizo with “vegan cheesy sauce” that gives everything a certain fruitiness. We’d skip the chocolate espresso cookie ($2), baked from a recipe by retired tenant Paisley Pantry, for dessert — the texture goes from a hard crunch to a downright tacky interior, reading rich and dark, but indistinct.
