Atlanta Underground Market

On Saturday night, I had the pleasure of attending the Atlanta Underground Market with three lovely bloggers – Laura, Carol and Heather (and Carol’s boyfriend Jesse and Heather’s husband Kirk.)

The market is a once a month in a different location each month. The location is revealed the day before in an email. There are 30-40 vendors selling food for anywhere from $1-$5 and it’s $5 to get in. According to their website: The vendors are a mix of home cooks, caterers, private chefs and maybe a few existing restaurants.

Laura, Carol and Heather went last month, but this was my first time. It was held at the Atlanta History Center, which I’d also never been to. The market was open from 6-9 and we decided to meet at 5:30 in the lobby. Good thing we got there early because it was CROWDED.

Despite the sheer number of people (they stopped letting people in after a while), I managed to try a lot of food including some sort of veggie dish:

Ethiopian food:

Sorrel juice (this is not wine):

and then a bunch of unpictured things such as: kale, a coconut cookie, a veggie tamale and lots of bites of whatever Laura was eating!

It was a fun experience but the crowds made it a little difficult to navigate the room. I hope that it’s in a bigger location next month and I just looked at the website and it appears that they’re going to be doing it for brunch! I’m in.
