Carlsbad Windmill Building Becoming New Food Hall


We’ve all seen it from the freeway – that iconic windmill building mark- ing our passage into Carlsbad. It used to be the Pea Soup Andersen Restau- rant for many years, and more recently, converted to a TGI Fridays.

Starting this summer, the building will open as the Windmill Food Hall – a 12-thousand foot space just steps from Carlsbad Premium Outlets. Developed by local restaurateur James Markham, who founded Pieology and Project Pie chains, the Windmill Food Hall will feature multiple food vendors in an indoor and outdoor venue.

Right now, Markham operates a wood- fired pizzeria called Doughballs and Crackheads, a breakfast eatery within the Liberty Public Market at Liberty Station in Point Loma.

The Windmill Food Hall will have 11 vendors along with a full bar, along with seating for more than 300 guests throughout the space — ranging from an outdoor area with games for kids to a cozy “library” with a replace.

Bill Shrader, David Maxwell, and Serena Patterson of Colliers International San Diego Region’s Urban Property Team represented both Markham and the landlord, Carlsbad Properties, Inc.
