I just discovered Ponce City Market. It’s a 9-story building built in the 4th ward in 1926 by Sears Roebuck on the location of the former Atlanta Crackers/Atlanta Black Crackers baseball stadium.

This is a wonderful building with high ceilings, spiral staircases, and old wooden floors. There is underground parking and the first two floors are retail; the rest of the building is offices, apartments, educational facilities, and a rooftop amusement park.

The food hall is similar to the famous Chelsea Market in NYC also owned by Jamestown. James Beard-awarded chefs with presence in the food hall include Anne Quatrano of Star Provisions, Linton Hopkins of Restaurant Eugene, and Sean Brock of Charleston, of S.C.'s Husk restaurant.

There are a couple of anchor stores but otherwise there are very few typical mall stores. A couple of eye-catchers are Biltong (South African beef Jerky and booze) and Botiwalla (Indian street food).
