Coors Field Insider: Vendors Provide Everything You Might Need

So you've gotten your tickets to sit in the Purple Row, you've made the journey to Coors Field, you've parked your car, and you're on your way into the park. But wait, you don't have any snacks! What is a hungry baseball fan to do?

The good thing is that you're covered from like a million different angles. If you decided to light rail in or park somewhere in downtown south of the field, and you're walking in on Wynkoop, there's a particular hot dog vender right at the beginning of the baseball plaza next to Sing Sing's and Fado's. His prices aren't much different than any other street meat vendor around Denver, but the difference in quality is certainly noticeable. He's a friendly vendor and he's been doing it for quite awhile now. Best place to get a hot dog.

If you parked somewhere in LoDo and are walking in, you're slightly out of luck as far as hot dogs go. I think I saw a vendor on 21st between Larimer and Lawrence on the way in on Saturday.

But your quest for finding something to eat outside of the park isn't in vain. If you're not early enough to just hit up a restaurant down on the 16th St. Mall or something of similar ilk, the next option is to grab a burrito directly outside of Coors Field. The names of the vendors have changed over the years we've been going, but one name that seems to linger is "Nancy's Fancy Burritos". They're all somewhere between 3 and 5 bucks for a burrito filled with local cookin' goodness. My personal favorite is the Steak and Green Chile. 

Past that, if you forgot your peanuts, kettle corn, soda pop, gatorade, bottled water, Spitz sunflower seeds, pistachios, or even Rockies merchandise such as hats, buttons, tshirts, whatever, it's all being sold by somebody outside of the park. I've seen Doc Popcorn venders north of the park, as well as a guy roasting his own peanuts in a parking lot.

Here's the best part:

Permitted Items:

 

  • Plastic beverage containers
  • Soft-sided bags or containers 16"x 16"x 8" or smaller
  • Insulated cups or thermoses 22 ounces or smaller
  • Food items

 

So there you go. Bring yourself a full meal from home if you please, or if not, buy it right outside of the park and bring it in with you. One of my fonder Coors Field memories involved Chipotle, a bag of Dill Pickle Spitz, and sitting in the Rockpile.

But in the event that you're not a gourmet cook and want something more substantial than peanuts and soda pop, Coors Field has options for you.

Next Week: The Helton Burger.

What other interesting food/drink options have you found outside of the park?
