The other day, Lindsay posted the first part of our Atlanta recap by putting the spotlight on one of our favorite stops in the city – Ponce City Market. Today I’ll be continuing with our recap, and taking a look at another great food area in Atlanta, Krog Street Market.
Krog Street Market
Krog Street Market is a real treat and a fun place to uncover great finds. The marketplace has a lot of options and although we went in the evening there was still plenty to do and see. The building itself was a smaller than I was expecting, but they were able to pack a lot in to the small area!
If you are looking for a bunch of nice bespoke shops you have come to the right place. XOCOLATL Chocolate Shop specialized in small batch chocolates and had flavors and types I didn’t even know existed! Did I mention they let us taste test?! You can pick some up for yourself via their online shop.
We explored the market and visited a few shops including Hop City Beer & Wine and Krog Street Pet Works. But it has to be mentioned, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream is a must. This stuff is SO GOOD! Even at 10pm there was still a line at this place.
I mean c’mon! Look at this thing!
Our travel buddy Jess told us that Jeni’s used to hand-write the flavors on every single pint before recently adopting their own font design. Apparently they take their print design very seriously.
And of course, you gotta grab a pint. We stopped at The Luminary – a snazzy craft beer and cocktail bar in the back of the market. The bar was very cool, even though we watched as a customer complained about his gin order. Bar Patron Brock did NOT get the correct gin in his martini…he can tell!
Damnit Brock! You have such a sensitive palette!
Even if it’s only for drinks or dessert, make time for Krog Street Market next time you’re in Atlanta!
PIN THIS FOR LATER!
