A foodie's paradise? The awesome food halls of Atlanta


At the heart of Ponce City Market, the Central Food Hall is becoming the most vibrant food hall and market in the Southeast. James Beard Award-winning chefs the likes of Anne Quatrano, Linton Hopkins, and Sean Brock join Atlanta’s most exciting young purveyors and restauranteurs to offer everything from Georgia and Carolinas-caught seafood, to classic burgers, cold-pressed juice, and locally-made kimchee and Korean steamed buns.

Similar to the legendary food hall at Chelsea Market in Manhattan—also owned by the developers of Ponce City Market—the Central Food Hall is a culinary gathering place within a revamped historic space, but with the distinct character and ?avors of Atlanta.

Krog Street Market is a destination for Atlanta’s intown culture – those who are always searching for unique, specialty creations. It’s designed to be as authentic as the 1920’s Atlanta Stove Works warehouse it’s built into. Opening its doors in 2014, with market stalls to sell produce, goods, and prepared food, along with a few southern-grown restaurants and retailers, the market offers residents a gathering place of sorts – a locale for taking in an extraordinary meal or picking up a few inspiring ingredients – a west coast-style market, right in the heart of Inman Park.

The Sweet Auburn Curb Market is located inside the original Municipal Market building, which opened its doors in 1924. Referred to as “The Curb Market” by locals, the building houses 24 individual businesses, including produce, seafood and meat merchants, a full service bakery, a bookstore, pharmacy and eleven of the most popular eateries in the city.

Currently under development by The General Muir Team, the Canteen will be a micro-food hall located in Midtown Atlanta’s Tech Square. Proposed tenants include Fred’s Meat & Bread, Yalla, TGM Bagel and the Square Bar. According to a recent atlanta.eater.com article, the “idea behind The Canteen is to create a casual, comfortable community hub that can be used by different folks in the neighborhood in different ways: a bagel sandwich on the way to class, a smoothie and pastry while studying, a quick falafel lunch on the plaza with coworkers, a business meeting over coffee, a cheesesteak and a beer at dinner, a round of drinks with friends after work.”

Expected to be open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner by early 2017 and with a variety of foods and a variety of price points, The Canteen should have wide appeal to the neighborhood.
