About Explorado Market (How did it come to be?) Fort Collins, CO


Our life (in a store) – Hi, we’re Kendra and Rob Benson and we’re behind the website Our Paleo Life, we decided to build a commercial kitchen and open a store offering healthy snacks & unique and local Colorado gifts. This is our story.

In 2013 we started the website ourpaleolife.com – since that time the site has grown in popularity. We’ve created meal plans, recipes, and tips on living healthier and longer through diet and “biohacking”.

Early in 2018 we created a product called Fat Fit Go – this is a different look at nut butters / energy gels. We had massive problems initially using a third party manufacturer so we decided to build out a commercial kitchen to have complete control.

This brings us to our location at 5748 S. College (not the most ideal place for a store) – we built out a kitchen and decided we should take everything we know and create what we’ve always wanted, a paleo / keto grocery, we had the space. We got to work.

Let’s rewind to 2015 for a minute. We started Horsetooth’d and it caught on pretty quickly.


We took the two things we know a lot about and Explorado Market was born. We’re here to be your local resource for everything keto / paleo related. Come share with us your experience and let’s grow in health, together.
