The Ponce City Market offers a porch next to the Atlanta Beltline that is ready to host all types of great events. There will be several excellent choices to enjoy all summer long and the events have already started. The porch is called “The Shed” and it’s ready to become a hot spot at the market. Here’s a look at what’s coming up.
Ponce City Farmers Market
Every Tuesday from 4pm to 8pm, this market is filled with artisan culinary experts, urban farmers and other local food providers and preparers. The market will also be adding a monthly pop-up to include workout classes, such as “Turntable DJ Yoga” and pet adoptions. It’s curated by the Community Farmers Market and provides an open-air event that will run into October.
The Helpful Hot Dog
A unique event hosted by The Mercury, The Helpful Hot Dog is a porch-side event with unique hot dogs. The event is organized to help Metro Atlanta’s restaurant workers struggling with issues, such as addiction, mental health issues and substance abuse. The last Saturday of each month will include a guest chef.
WonderFoot Artists Market
If you love local art and you want to enjoy an outdoor shopping experience, the first Sunday of every month is your time to head to Ponce City Market. This porch-side event will run from 12pm to 6pm and will include plenty of great works of art on sale for those looking to purchase.
The vendor fee collected from this event will help to support the WonderRoot’s creative youth development programs. Free tables are given away to two makers to help provide an opportunity for the most underrepresented artists in the city.
