ReKaivery shipping container farmers market opens at Odell Brewing

Odell Brewing Co. will welcome its newest food truck this weekend. Well, kind of.

ReKaivery – a shipping container “food hub” – will softly open between Odell’s Lincoln Avenue brewery and its OBC Wine Project taproom Sunday, according to ReKaivery Marketing Director Austin Lammers.

“It’s like a mini grocery store dedicated to local food,” Lammers said, explaining that the 300-square-foot shop will soon be stocked with goods from Northern Colorado vendors – everything from lettuce grown on area farms to locally made kombucha and certified- organic beef and bison meat.

While the food hub was once eyeing a space in Old Town, the project hit a snag with the city’s zoning requirements.

A 300-square-foot repurposed shipping container has popped up at Odell Brewing Co., where it will be stationed as Fort Collins' first all-season local food hub.

“Things just weren’t built for our model,” Lammers said, adding that the small crew behind ReKaivery found it easier to pivot and get licensed as a mobile retail food establishment operator.

“Basically, we’re a food truck,” Lammers said.

ReKaivery will be parked at Odell Brewing Co. through September, with the option to extend its lease into the winter if the setup works out for both parties, Lammers said. The food hub is in talks to possibly move to a more semi-permanent location at New Belgium Brewing, he added.
