Popular Peachtree Center Green Market returned for the season on Thursday, April 7th.
The Peachtree Center Green Market has opened for the season and will continue each Thursday through October from 11:00am – 2:00pm, offering a unique lunchtime experience for those who work in and visit downtown.
This mid-day market in Peachtree Center’s Courtyard features over a dozen vendors selling local goods from produce to breads to juice. Cosmos Organic Farm, Pearson Farms and Sweet Auburn Bread are returning for 2016, and exciting new vendors this year include Banjo Cold Brew Coffee and The Allergy Friendly Vegetarian. In addition to the all-star vendor list, the Green Market will present live music from local musicians each week.
“The Peachtree Center Green Market is a unique way to bring the downtown community together over lunch,” said Marti Blackstock, with Banyan Street Capital, owner and operator of Peachtree Center. “People come to the market each week from all over downtown to grab fresh peaches, delicious pastries and other locally grown and prepared fresh foods to enjoy at lunch or take home. Peachtree Center is truly the heart and soul of downtown Atlanta, and events such as the Green Market contribute to the town square-like feel of the courtyard.”
This local market is unique because it occurs on a weekday during lunch time, allowing tens of thousands of downtown workers to have access to fresh, healthy food and experience a welcome mid-day break in an urban oasis, all without getting in a vehicle. For those outside of downtown, the market is easily accessible by MARTA, bike or car.
“The Peachtree Center Green Market is like a breath of fresh air on Peachtree Street,” said Lynn Williamson, marketing and creative director at Central Atlanta Progress. “From fresh produce, house-made jams, bakery items to live music, it evokes images of a bustling town square. The market is a weekly delight that downtown workers and residents look forward to each Thursday.”
