Ah Cabbagetown, I have yet to write my love poem to you but soon, I promise! If you are ever in the Atlanta area near Cabbage Town, you have to go to Krog Street Market and grab some lunch at one of the many great eateries. Perhaps you have been wandering around on your #ATLMuralMarch and worked up a hunger (THIS insane wall is literally right now the street!)? Or maybe you are driving all the way across town for the food. Whatever the reason, the Market is a hidden adventure in it of itself.
I have only driven by the Market and I knew that there was a Mex-Tex restaurant that had an outdoor seating area, but I had no idea that inside the old warehouse, there are at least 5-10 other places to grab some amazing food. They have a varied menu selection and I kinda wish I could have gotten something from each stall but alas, my moma and I decided to try Richard’s Southern Fried.
Y’all – it was insanely delicious! We split the loaded potato wedges and I so wish I had some in front of me right now! Healthy they are not but sometimes you have to splurge. And when it has potatoes, chicken, AND cheese- Well who could resist! And if it is not too crazy busy, you can sit at their little counter (like we did!) and watch them make some of the items!
While waiting on our meal to be freshly prepared, I walked across the aisle to the cutest little essential oil bath goodies that smelled heavenly. Soaps, roller blends for whatever ails you (headaches, tension, congestion, etc), and scrubs galore. I found myself drawn to the grapefruit and citrus scents because they are my jam. I loved that there was a tester station for the scrubs and that is definitely what sold me on them! If you are looking for a wonderful gift idea for a friend, coworker, or maybe you want a “treat yo-self” gift, check out Mama Bath + Body essential oil sugar scrub. The smells are divine, it leaves you feeling smooth because of the shea butter, and it’s under $20. Oh and it’s made locally in Georgia. I plan on buying all the things because she sells her products on her website. This grapefruit tangerine scrub is life.
Last up at the Krog Street Market is the The Merchant & Co. They have all kinds of neat antique vintage finds, stationary and other various paper goods, and just the cutest give ideas! Since I am always trying to save money for future adventures, all that I purchased was the Atlanta postcard above. but you should definitely stop if you are looking for something unique for yourself or someone else! Plus take a selfie for “good luck.”
