During this festive season of holiday spirit, two markets featuring local Black-owned businesses provide a wonderful opportunity to find that special gift while enjoying the Atlanta BeltLine.
On the Eastside Trail, the Village Market at PCM offers an assortment of products from some 25 Black local entrepreneurs specialized in conscious apparel/merchandise, all-natural products, and foods. Located on the second floor of Ponce City Market’s Central Food Hall, the newly opened retail space rotates brands every 4 months and serves as a brick-and-mortar shop for Village Market founder Dr. Lakeysha Hallmon to showcase and empower Black entrepreneurs 365 days a year.
Sleigh for the Holidays is a Weekend Holiday Market at The Ke’nekt near the Atlanta BeltLine Westside Trail. Opened Saturdays and Sundays through December 26 from 12:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m., shoppers can find fun gifts for their loved ones as they support their favorite local Black-owned business.
