The owners of Candler Park Market will open a new outpost, Grant Park Market, at Larkin on Memorial in early 2017.

The 5,556 square foot market is the first lease signed for the 63,000 square foot mixed-use, re-development at 519 Memorial Drive from Paces Properties, the developers of Krog Street Market.

“After 13 years of success with Candler Park Market, we knew the time was right to open a second location in Grant Park,” says Greg Hutchins, Partner, Candler/Grant Park Market. “We believe in the strength of the Eastside neighborhoods and the back-to-the-future concept that Paces has for the Larkin on Memorial project. We share a common vision of an Intown Atlanta populated by local merchants that support and share in the success of a community.”

Grant Park Market will feature a large selection of all natural and organic groceries, local produce, select meats, beer, wine and a deli. Once open, Grant Park Market will also host in-store wine and beer tastings. There will also be a take-out window, hot bar and a more expansive lunch counter.

“This announcement should set the tone for what is ahead for our Larkin on Memorial Project,” said Merritt Lancaster, Principal Paces Properties, in a media statement. “We are combining the convenience of a practical shopping center with the warmth and hospitality of a familiar, family-friendly neighborhood establishment. We are reintroducing a gorgeous building, curating an incredible tenant mix and look forward to announcing more tenants soon.”
