Parkville Market is the first food hall in Connecticut, home to 20 unique restaurants, three bars, indoor and outdoor dining, a specialty grocery shop and more.

Tell us a bit about your recent accomplishments.

Parkville Market opened in May 2020, in the height of the pandemic, and over the last year we have supported 20 restaurants in opening a new business or expanding to another location at our food hall — all Connecticut small businesses that are owner-operated.

The market and these businesses have created over 125 jobs in Hartford and persevered through a challenging winter without a single restaurant closing.

We’re also thrilled to have welcomed over 75,000 guests at the Market in the month of April, bringing new visitors from all over the state to Parkville and Hartford.

Where do you see your business in the next five years?

Parkville Market has plans to expand into the three remaining buildings on the property to create a total of 60,000 square feet of food, beverage, entertainment and events space.

It will be an indoor/outdoor experience that doubles down on our mission to celebrate Connecticut and Hartford businesses. Plans include a local brewery and distillery, as well as more restaurant kiosks, a large event space and a rooftop bar.
