Paso Market Walk project progresses 

Editor’s note: This story has been updated to reflect a new target opening date of October and includes Deborah Longo’s role in building Justin Winery.

–Rain interrupted work on the Paso Market Walk on Spring Street, but between showers, JW Design is making good progress.

The Paso Market Walk is a 16,000-square-foot development located at the site of the old Hometown Nursery at 18th and Spring Street. Deborah Longo is developing the Paso Market Walk. She is the former wife of Justin Baldwin. Together, the couple built Justin Winery near Paso Robles. She is currently married to Dr. James Longo.

The plan calls for a cluster of buildings with two restaurants, six vacation rentals and several retail stores. One of the restaurants will be located in the old J.H. Van Wormer house. Van Wormer grew almonds in the Paso Robles area, when the region was the Almond Capital of the World. He built the two-story, yellow house on the property back in 1890. The old house is currently up on blocks, waiting for a foundation and renovation.

The vacation rentals include two units which are studios; two one-bedroom units, and two two-bedroom units.

Several retailers have committed to lease space at Paso Market Walk including Hog Canyon Brewing, Stafford’s Chocolates, Just Baked SLO, Momotaro Ramen, The Vreamery, and Montello, which sells olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

The developers are still looking for new vendors to add to their line up at the project.

The Paso Market Walk is currently scheduled to open for business in October.
