“We’re excited to bring the Atlanta BeltLine Indie Market to our BeltLine MarketPlace locations,” said Kara Lively, Atlanta BeltLine Director of Economic Development. “This initiative not only supports our local artists and musicians but also creates a lively and engaging community activity for residents and visitors. We encourage everyone to join us on the Second Saturdays and experience the vibrant culture of Atlanta’s creative community.”
