Exploring

Ponce City Market

This past weekend while in Atlanta, we decided to stop by the Ponce City Market since we were already in the area.  We had heard about it, but having never been we weren’t quite sure what it was all about!  The building is big not only in size, but also in history.  Originally opened in 1926 as a Sears, it is one of the largest buildings in the Southeast United States, and the history of the building is everywhere you look.  Having been refurbished as a multi-use building in 2014, it now is home to retail stores, restaurants, offices, and residential units, as well as offering access to the Atlanta Beltline.  This massive building is a treat to explore, with an amazing blend of old and new.  My favorite part of Ponce (obviously, I got a little distracted taking photos of it!) is the fun artwork they have painted everywhere!

      I haven’t! Where is Krog Street Market? I haven’t heard of it, but it sounds like a place I need to try!
