Ecclesia Market is an assembly of revelry in the heart of Downtown Castle Rock.

The Castle Rock Downtown Alliance had the opportunity to sit down with David Schutte, a co-owner of Ecclesia. Here are some of our favorite questions that we got to discuss with him.
Why did you choose Downtown/what attracted you to owning a business in Castle Rock?
Because it is the best town in Colorado. We love the Historic Downtown Castle Rock. We live in town and we wanted to build something here we would go to. We wanted to keep it local too, which is why we brought in Local businesses with local business owners such as Sudden Fiction Books, Garlic & Spice Kitchen, Brit Stop Cafe, Fish & Company, Romo’s Street Taco’s, and Sinners & Saints!
Tell us the story/background of your business. How did you end up running a business in your industry?
It was by accident really. It was a group of friends who got together and were talking about things that Castle Rock was missing or places we like to go. Then we decided to build it so you can enjoy it too!
Favorite thing about owning a small business?
The people who come in. Especially for the first time. The look on their faces does not get old. Or, maybe it’s the next time they come in and bring someone who has never been before and the cycle continues.
What’s something unique that people may not know about you or your business?
Some people think the building is haunted. I personally have not experienced this, but I have talked with people who insist they have had terrestrial experiences.
What’s the easiest way customers can support your small business right now?
I think its simply to remember you live in a small town and to shop local. All of our vendors have pick-up/carry out options (yup….even The bar), and most the food vendors use the online delivery services. There is nothing wrong with going to the “big box places,” but there is something really unique about our locally owned/operated places downtown. And I don’t limit that to our offerings. We have something very special in this town and you as a consumer can get just as much out of it as we do serving you in your own back yard. Just come see us!
