When in the Atlanta area, a visit to Ponce City Market is an absolute must to satisfy your need for food, inspiration and, of course, fashion. Formally the Sears, Roebuck & Company building filled with warehouses and showrooms, the building was transformed into a place to celebrate community. The newly restored landmark can be found in the Historic Fourth Ward neighborhood with easy access to the city’s ever evolving BeltLine. The also newly developed BeltLine connects multiple neighborhoods in Atlanta metro, making it easier for residents to access new areas on foot or bike.

The foodie in me was skipping from restaurant to food counter to growler fill station with excitement, all located within the Central Food Hall. Modeled after NYC’s Chelsea Market, it’s a perfect spot for a fun date night, casual hang with friends or a quick stop for a bite and stroll through the rest of the market with a drink in hand.

Connected to the food hall you’ll find a unique presentation from West Elm with a new market vibe, complete with a coffee bar, living wall, and an emphasis on dining entertainment. And, yes, I now need a living wall in my home. Also, an ideal location for homegoods retailer Williams Sonoma shoppers can explore all the best culinary tools and must haves to help them embrace their inner chef.

As you stroll through the multi-level space, be prepared to spend some time here to really explore all that Ponce City has to offer. From local flower shops to big name brands like Anthropologie, Lululemon, J.Crew and Sephora, retail shops are located all throughout the market. The outdoor courtyard connects multiple shopping destinations and the roof is home to a Skyline Park with fun activities for all ages.


Community development is a big part of what makes Ponce City Market such a success. With community green space and events, residents, and even tourists, have a place to relax and have fun with friends.
