Opening to the public this Monday, May 20, Longmont’s first food hall, Parkway Food Hall (700 Ken Pratt Blvd, Ste. 200) has announced its eighth and final booth, HipPOPs handcrafted gelato bars.

HipPOPs rounds out the 16,000-square-foot all-day food hall’s family- and foodie-friendly offerings that include Japanese street food, a beloved pizzeria, whole hog barbecue, an Indian-Thai fusion concept, as well as a top-notch expansive bar with a full wine and beer list, and excellent cocktail program. 

Parkway’s arcade will add to the fun with interactive and traditional arcade games.  Parkway will add two more retail offerings soon after opening.

Parkway will open in Longmont’s Parkway Promenade, one of the city’s most historic shopping centers, with a huge indoor/outdoor bar, indoor/outdoor seating, an expansive patio and event space for up to 40. The principal architect, Meridian 105, is the design mastermind behind Avanti Food & Beverage and Edgewater Public Market. Seasoned food hall veterans National Food Hall Solutions, the operating partner, opened Denver’s Junction Food & Drink in 2020, which went on to win the NAIOP’s 2020 Retail Development of the Year Award. Faurot Construction leads construction.

Parkway will celebrate its grand opening Memorial Day weekend, with live music by Sarah Banker with PJ Moon on Sunday, May 26, 3-6 p.m.

“We couldn’t be more excited to welcome folks into Parkway Food Hall,” said Chris Nehls, vice president of Blackfox Parkway Associates, the company that has owned the building for more than 30 years. “Every detail was chosen to make a space that is inclusive and fun for the entire community. From dawn to dusk, this is the place for a morning meeting, a business lunch, a happy hour exploring the cocktail program with friends, a date night for parents, weeknight dinners for families, and a weekend spot to watch the game.” 

Parkway Food Hall’s highly anticipated (food) vendors include:

  • Baa Hachi is a new Japanese street food concept from the award-winning Farow husband and wife team. The concept will be led by Chef Adam Chan, who grew up in Hong Kong and has worked at Michelin-starred restaurants including Tate Dining Room in Hong Kong and Ever Restaurant in Chicago. Dishes will include Tonkatsu Ramen, Okonomyaki, Pork Belly Bao Buns, Miso Glazed Salmon Bowl, and more. 
  • H3ersh3r has become a cult favorite whole hog mobile barbecue catering service and food truck. Their Parkway stall will be their first brick-and-mortar location, serving up their smoked meats, barbecue sandwiches, and notable sides like white cheddar mac-and-cheese. 
  • Farow will also be moving its pop-up Pie Dog into Parkway. Pie Dog opened in Farow in January 2023 and is known for its thin-crust Neapolitan-style pizzas with locally sourced organic flour.
  • Spice Fusion, under Chef Ram Kumar Shrestha, is an innovative blend of Indian and Thai cuisine from the owners of Boulder’s Gurkhas on the Hill.
  • Cleaver & Co. will open its third location following its success in South Denver’s Junction Food & Drink Food Hall and Cherry Creek Food Hall (formerly Grange Food Hall.) Cleaver & Co. has perfected juicy grilled burgers and chicken sandwiches, crispy fries, and luscious shakes.
  • Shawarma Shack  – This will be the second location for Shawarma Shack, a Mediterranean concept offering traditional shawarma wraps, fresh salads and bowls with a variety of meats, accompanied by pickled vegetables and creamy tahini sauce.  There will also be hummus, falafel, and tabbouleh for additional healthier options. 
  • Previously announced, Chile con Quesadilla from Denver (Top Taco Denver winner in 2021 and 2022) was the first concept to sign on.
  • HipPOPs handcrafted gelato combines old-world Italian gelateria traditions with modern technology, and is the eighth and final concept to complete the Hall’s offerings.
