“Featuring these independent producers – who work in small batches – fulfills the market’s role as an incubator for small businesses,” notes market manager Pam Joiner. “The homemade products they sell are reminiscent of the wholesome food that was sold at the market when it first began.”
This Saturday from noon – 4pm, market shoppers will be among the first in Atlanta to try Keira’s Biscuits and gourmet food from Artichoke Bliss, two of Atlanta’s up-and-coming street food artisans. Georgia State University students will be demonstrating how to prepare a healthy vegetable soup meal-in-a-bag using produce from the market’s tables. Additional artisans on hand include Miss D’s Pralines and Fairywood Thicket. The market’s favorite DJ will be providing Mardi Gras entertainment, and the first 400 shoppers (after noon) receive free Mardi Gras beads.
