8 Eateries to Check Out at Longmont’s New Parkway Food Hall




Longmont officially has its first food hall.


Parkway Food Hall opened its doors last week at the corner of Ken Pratt Boulevard and Main Street—or “Main and Main,” as Chris Nehls likes to call it.

Nehls is vice president of Actis, the company that has owned Longmont’s Parkway Promenade for more than 30 years. He was instrumental in bringing the food hall to life, along with Pat Garza of National Food Hall Solutions, which is the operating partner on the project.


The 16,000-square-foot space has eight food stalls, plus a full-service bar serving beer, wine and cocktails. Parkways also has event space for up to 40 people, a spacious patio and an arcade. A coffee shop is slated to open soon.

“As we got to know more about the food hall business, we really fell in love with what it is—and, specifically, the breadth you can achieve at a food hall,” says Nehls. “Because you really can be something for everyone. It’s unlike a normal restaurant, where you have to pick your lane and stay in it.”


Boulder has two official food halls, Avanti Food and Beverage and Rosetta Hall, plus a third unofficial food hall if you count Rayback Collective. But Parkway is the first to open in Longmont.

Meridian 105 Architecture designed the space—which once housed Lucky’s Market and Alfalfa’s Market—and Longmont’s Faurot Construction led the build-out.


“We’re excited to bring this new destination to Longmont residents and visitors,” says Garza. “We’re thrilled to help eight local chefs and restaurateurs achieve success, whether it’s through testing a new concept, creating their first brick-and-mortar following food truck success, or setting up a second, third or fourth location. Things are tough for restaurateurs these days, but we’re living in a new era where the more expensive traditional brick-and-mortar restaurants aren’t the only route to success for chefs.”
