Mountain Avenue Market makes it easy to load up on everything local, organic and natural. With over 2,000 local items throughout the store, if they make it in Colorado we probably have it. What’s more, there’s a good chance the person standing next to you in the aisle made something we sell in the store! We offer over 200 items in our Bulk department, including hard to find bulk goods.
Pit Liquor deodorant and Distilled Bath and Body. We made Pit Liquor because we were tired of how pervasively we found noxious chemicals in our environment and on/in our bodies. So, obviously, we turned to whiskey to solve our quandary. We did research, trials, and found a perfect formula using only ingredients that are safe enough to eat. We took Pit Liquor from a self-made thing we do at home to something we can sell to others. We’re so thankful for each of you!
