New butcher & deli offers burger pop-up this weekend ahead of their November 1st opening

The North Market is getting an external face lift right now, with a new parking lot, but also they’re undergoing an internal one, too, with the addition of some exciting new vendors.  And the reviews are in: their newest addition serves “about the best thing I’ve ever had,” according to Instagram comments.

COLO Butcher & Deli is opening their newest eatery November 1st (or that following weekend) according to owner, Ian Holmes. In the meantime, you can be some of the first to try their Wagyu beef smash burgers and loaded french fries Thursdays-Saturday, 11- 4pm.

“This pop-up is a way for us to dip our feet in, fire up the fryers, and make sure everything goes smoothly before we open,” Holmes explained.

Now that Preston’s Burgers left North Market, COLO Butcher & Deli is filling the burger void.

Holmes didn’t want just an average wholesale, grab&go, type butchery and deli. He’s focused on having hot menu offerings as well. At COLO Butcher & Deli, patrons can enjoy high quality, Wagyu beef smash burgers sourced from a local farmers, as well as Cuban sandwiches, bratwursts, and of course, their already iconic Mississippi pot roast fries, loaded with a horseradish aioli and pepperoncinis. And they can also grab fresh-cut meat to take home. 


This will be COLO’s second location inside North Market, with their first being COLO Market & Oyster Bar located right across from their new butcher and deli shop. Their seafood stand is a wildly popular destination for fresh seafood to-go, but also made-to-order fried fish and oyster sandwiches, crab sliders, and shucked oysters you can devour on the spot.

Holmes recognizes that opening a butcher & deli right after opening a seafood restaurant and wholesale stand could be difficult, but he’s up for the challenge. “I’ve been working in the seafood industry for the past 12 years. I’m stepping way out of my comfort zone with a butcher and deli, but it’s all for the greater good of the North Market,” he said.

“North Market has always been a magical place to me. It doesn’t feel right to have a market without a butcher shop or burgers, and it’s become a glaring need that people need to have a place where they can buy wholesale salmon and their meat,” Holmes added.

North Market is located at 59 Spruce St. Don’t let the ongoing parking lot construction scare you away from some incredible food!
