Fodor's Expert Review Sweet Auburn Curb Market

Sweet Auburn, the Old Fourth Ward, and East Atlanta Market/Bazaar

The market, an institution on Edgewood Avenue since 1924, sells flowers, fruits, and vegetables, and a variety of meat—everything from fresh catfish to foot-long oxtails. Vendors also include a tasty popcorn stand, an organic coffee shop, and local favorites Bell Street Burritos, Grindhouse Killer Burgers, and Arepa Mia, all of which have opened secondary locations after being incubated here first. Individual stalls are run by a diverse set of owners, making this a true public market—especially significant now, considering that Atlanta's black residents were forced to sell their wares on the curb in the market's early days.
