Ponce City Market Atlanta

Situated within the Old Fourth Ward and conveniently situated on the Atlanta BeltLine is the fully renovated 1860’s era Sears & Roebuck building, now known as Ponce City Market. With first-class restaurants, plus shopping, amusement, mini-golf and plenty of kid-friendly activities, Ponce City Market is a staple for Atlanta families. Keep reading for the best spots to hit while going to the market!

In the late 1860s, the land was sowed and nurtured as the Ponce de Leon Springs before it became a shopping and dining destination. By the twentieth century, the area had grown into a popular amusement park. Throughout the century, the development served as a backdrop for Atlanta’s baseball teams, the Atlanta Crackers and the Black Crackers, as well as the South’s train-stop headquarters for Sears, Roebuck & Co.

Skyline Park

Skyline Park, located on the Ponce City Market’s rooftop, is an amusement park that opened in summer 2016 atop the popular mixed use development. The carnival-style attraction pays tribute to the historical site’s former reputation as Ponce de Leon Amusement Park, also known as the “Coney Island of the South.” The park includes $1 to $3 games, a beer garden, and a massive slide behind the popular “Ponce City Market” sign. Throw a huge hammer over your shoulder and see if you can ring the bell, or test your hoop skills with a basketball game while on the roof. Admission is $10 for adults and children over the age of 12, and $7 for children under the age of three.

Ponce City Farmers Market

The Ponce City Farmers Market, located beneath “The Shed” along the Beltline East Side trail, sells only Georgia-grown produce. It is a producers-only market, which means that all of the vendors only sell their own products. It will reopen on Tuesdays from 4 to 8 p.m. on April 14, 2020.

Hello and welcome! My name is Rebecca Puig and I’m the artist behind Sugarboo & Co. In case you were wondering, “Sugarboo” came from a couple of nicknames I have for my children, Jake and Sophie.
