A Showcase of our Pioneering Spirit
Our marketplace supports a new generation of food purveyors – people who produce goods with respect for human, animal, and environmental well being. Our handpicked collection of the farmers, ranchers, chefs, vintners, makers, and producers are committed to the values and practices of sustainable food and supply systems. Their everyday presence in the neighborhood makes those systems available to the patrons who want to know where their food comes from and how it was made.
Preserving the Architectural Legacy
Built in 1890 by John Van Wormer– one of the first elected trustees of the newly incorporated city– the Victorian home at 1803 Spring Street is Paso Robles’ best example of the “Carpenter Gothic” architectural style. From 1980-2008 it was known as the community nursery where its lush grounds grew year-round. Now vacant and decaying, we intend on restoring the home’s original elegance and welcoming spirit to preserve its legacy for the neighborhood.
Paso Market Walk will feature the restored, architecturally significant Victorian home re-envisioned as a restaurant, short-stay one and two bedroom suites, and a series of sophisticated marketplace buildings with local purveyors. The market will also give the neighborhood a welcoming and gracious community gathering place, family-friendly outdoor commons, and water-wise gardens to enjoy. It’s a place where community can be woven, strengthened, and inspired.
