Atlanta, Georgia is one of the best cities in the United States for food lovers. The city’s vibrant blend of local and international cuisine has made it a top stop for foodies who come to discover the United States with their taste buds. Atlanta’s food markets are an especially strong point of the city and its gastronomic scene. Here are three that you must make time to visit.
Ponce City Market
The Ponce City Market is a sort of epicenter for foodie culture in the Big Peach. Located in an early 20th century building which one housed a Sears catalogue store, you’ll now find a dizzying array of local vendors selling fresh products as well as some of the city’s best restaurants, such as Botiwalla.
Krog Street Market
Described by Travel and Leisure as “one of the world’s best food halls,” Krog Street Market is located in the Inman Park neighborhood and features a unique and eclectic collection of independent food vendors. From bao to small batch chocolate, you’ll find almost everything here.
Buford Highway Farmers Market
The Buford Highway area in the north Atlanta suburbs has quickly transformed into one of the most diverse places in the United States. Populated with immigrant groups from everywhere from Vietnam to El Salvador, these cultures come together at this market, where you’ll find fresh, authentic treats and ingredients from all around the world.
