The new Broadway Market features nine food options and a central bar in the Golden Triangle
| Jonathan Phillips/Eater

Hard to believe as it may be, it’s really been only six years since The Source first brought together restaurants, bars, a butcher shop, and several boutique stores inside an old foundry on a then-desolate stretch of Brighton Boulevard.

But in the relatively short time since The Source came on the scene, food and market halls have gone from being cutting-edge to (gasp) rather commonplace. And yet, such halls remain the Denver area’s hottest culinary trend, with new entrants continuing to set up shop in locales ranging from an old airplane hangar in Aurora to a former specialty grocery store on Broadway.

It’s a frenzy that shows no sign of stopping as the Front Range is now home to 12 food and market halls, with the newest set to open on Friday, October 11, in Boulder. And still many more are also in the works, including a soon-to-be-completed marketplace in Edgewater and two other halls planned for Golden and Boulder. In fact, just this week, a developer announced plans for a new 10-stall hall near I-25 and Colorado Boulevard.

So with the Front Range’s food hall fever seeming far from over, here is a look at the area’s current food hall landscape and the currently open (and just-about-to-open) halls that currently occupy it. This guide will be regularly updated as new halls open.

This behemoth LoDo food hall from restaurateur Frank Bonanno’s houses 13 restaurants, three bars, and an artisan food market — and Bonanno is behind them all. Most are a combination of a restaurant and market counter, offering some goods and prepared dishes. Albina by the Sea is a seafood counter that also serves prepared dishes like fish and chips and calamari along with fish sandwiches. Among the other stations are Lou’s Hot and Naked (fried chicken), Cornicello (gelato), and Fem (French crepes).

This food hall opened earlier this summer in a 3,000-square-foot space just off of Golden’s main drag. Highly compact by the standards of most of the metro area’s other halls, Tributary boasts features six restaurant stalls along with a bar, a coffee stall, and a gelato stand. Morning visitors can grab oat, smoothie, or chia bowls from Kona Bowl Superfoods or one of Woodgrain Bagel’s Montreal-style bagels (sweeter and denser than their New York counterparts and cooked in wood-fired oven). Lunch and dinner options include oysters and shrimp from the Working Kitchen raw bar and the Canadian pizza topped with smoked pork and charred pineapple at Fringe, a Neapolitan pizzeria that also has a location in Boulder. There is also a small patio.

The food hall frenzy arrived in Douglas County earlier this summer with the opening of Ecclesia Hall in Castle Rock. The hall’s setting inside an old church makes it a unique spot for noshing on street tacos from Romo’s and Spanish and German cuisine from Lante Brau Casa. The hall also includes a cocktail bar, a coffee bar and a bookstore, as well as a specialty foods shop called Farmgirl Foods.
