Full description
Ponce City Market has been named one of the best food halls in the country. Housed in a former Sears and Roebuck distribution center, the market has been created by the same developers who developed New York’s Chelsea Market. This air-conditioned indoor Market is now filled with locally owned award-winning restaurants offering you a taste of the best of Atlanta Street food, without the humidity or the streets! You'll sample the best Atlanta has to offer. Enjoy tastings from multiple eateries including, for example, a cheeseburger where all the ingredients are made from scratch – including the mustard and the ketchup – by the James Beard Award Winning Chef, Linton Hopkins. Bite into a Cuban sandwich and yuca fries from the James Beard Award Nominee, Chef Hector Santiago. Taste Chicken Tikka Masala grilled on Naan and topped with gourmet slaw. See why Oprah considers this Brown Butter Toffee gelato one of her favorites. Adults over 21 also get the chance to refresh themselves with a Boozy Slushy. All the tastings add up to a complete and satisfying lunchtime meal. Explore the secrets of the market from when it was covered in sulfuric springs to present day. Located in the Old Fourth Ward neighborhood, just northeast of Atlanta’s Downtown, this is still the largest brick structure in the whole of the southeast of the United States. You will also get to venture outside for a short 20-minute guided walk along the Atlanta Beltline Eastside Trail to explore and photograph the colorful murals that dot its path.

As first time visitors to Atlanta we were thrilled to stumble upon this Food Tour of the Ponce Market. It covers the history, some great and very filling food stops and a tour down the trail to work off some of the calories. We were fascinated by the baseball connection as well as the history of the surrounding area. Our guide David was personable, answered all our questions and pointed out so many interesting features we would not have noticed. The variety of food was a big plus. Do not eat breakfast before you go on this tour!!!

We really enjoyed the variety of food and the pace of the tour. The walk on the Beltway to see art was a great addition to the food. David was very knowledgeable and accommodating. I would highly recommend this tour.
