LOCAL FOOD AND URBAN BEES

With its urban locale, Union Station might seem like an unlikely spot to find fresh, local produce, but you can do just that every Saturday from June 4 to October 22, 2016. Between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m., farmers and food producers set up shop on Denver Union Station Plaza for the new Union Station Farmers' Market, offering Denverites access to the freshest local fare, from fruits and veggies to cheese and fresh-baked bread. Union Station is also the site of Denver's latest urban beekeeping program, with four hives located on the roof of the building. The station and its restaurants partnered on the project, meaning that at some point, patrons may be able to order pastries, drinks and other treats made with honey produced on-site.

GREEN BUILDING

The use of recycled materials, increased ventilation, natural light, and a green cleaning policy helped earn Union Station's Bus Concourse a Gold LEED certification for green building. It is only the ninth transit building in the country to earn LEED designation. LEED, which stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a green building certification program that recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices.
