About Stanley Marketplace

Stanley is no ordinary marketplace. Located in northwest Aurora on the border of Denver’s Stapleton, Stanley Marketplace is a community of like-minded businesses and people who believe in doing things differently: sustainably, creatively, with more than the bottom line in mind. The more than 22-acre, 140,000 sq. ft. indoor/outdoor space was once Stanley Aviation, where airplane ejector seats were engineered and manufactured; now it is an adaptive reuse community hub, home to 54 independently owned Colorado businesses, including twenty places to eat and drink, ten boutiques, a yoga studio, a co-working space, an events venue, and more. Today, the same innovative spirit that once filled this building has been harnessed to offer community members an urban marketplace featuring goods and services from local, independent businesses, as well as a robust community outreach program.
