Big Jim Denio Beer is HERE!

Denio’s Farmers Market and The Monk’s Cellar is proud to unveil our BIG Jim Denio American Lager! This collaboration between Denio’s and Monk’s has been months in the making and celebrates Denio’s Farmers Market’s 75th Anniversary this year!

“The inspiration behind creating this American Lager comes from what beer would have tasted like back in 1947,” says Monk’s Owner Andy Klein. The label on the can features an image of Denio’s founder Jim Denio, known in the community as “Big Jim Denio.” Jim’s grandson Eric Denio is so excited about this collaboration with another local business, “We were one of the first businesses in the Roseville area 75 years ago and I am hoping that I can keep it going for 150 years!” says Eric.

Monk owners Paul Gould and Andy Klein are both born and raised in Roseville and grew up going to Denio’s as children because their mothers used to be vendors at the popular farmers market and swap meet.

The Big Jim Denio is now on draft at Monk’s Cellar and on sale at Denio’s Farmers Market, your purchase at the market includes the limited edition commemorative Denio’s can!  Pick yours up today!!

There’s Always Something Unique at Denio’s

 

 


Denio’s – a 70 Acre Treasure Chest

Denio’s – a 70 Acre Treasure Chest

In an era of Amazon and one-click purchasing, it may be strange to think that people would ever choose to leave the comfort of their homes to make a purchase. Yet each weekend, thousands set down their laptops and tablets, however temporarily, to take a pass or two through the 70-acre treasure chest that is Denio’s Farmers Market & Swap Meet.

What is it about Denio’s that drives these people out of their air-conditioned homes and into Northern California’s largest outdoor swap meet? That’s simple; corn dogs the likes of which you have never tasted anywhere else. Golden beauties so good that numerous contestants gather each year for the Corn Dog Eating Contest to sacrifice their next six months-worth of cheat days to the corn dogs’ deliciousness. Of course, there’s also the fresh produce that has been a staple at Denio’s since Jim Denio founded the establishment in 1947. But what started as a single individual’s produce stand has expanded to include a vegetarian’s dreamland, 2-acres worth of different produce stands that consistently cut grocery store prices by more than half.

But great food is not all that Denio’s has to offer these days. New entertainment options are constantly being thrown into the mix; anything from pony rides to zip lines to classic car shows and live music can be found at Denio’s, giving every member of the family a reason to get outside and enjoy their weekend away from the computer screen.

And as a family owned and operated business since the very beginning, Denio’s always puts families first. There are currently five generations of Denio’s today, three of which can be found working in the market on any given weekend. From offering entertainment like petting zoos to wiener dog races and regulating the products that can be sold at the market, Denio’s maintains a warm, family-friendly atmosphere that sets the market apart from other weekend destinations.
