Additions to Ponce City Market include in-store eatery and eco-friendly fashion
STORY: Claire Ruhlin
Since Ponce City Market opened its doors in 2014, the historic mixed-use project has become a Midtown fixture, drawing visitors from Atlanta and beyond, and adding new retail and restaurant destinations to its already impressive directory.
In January, artisan marketplace Citizen Supply added Likewise, an eatery and bar, to its 12,000-square-foot, second-floor retail space boasting handmade and vintage wares. Likewise offers shoppers a 25-seat lounge and 20-seat bar, where the cocktail program, led by beverage director Ben Richardson, includes creative cocktails such as the Eastwood, made with bourbon, vermouth, sherry and amaro. Chef Jason Jimenez, previously of Kitchen Six and Homespun, oversees a food menu built around seasonal snacks and shared plates. Also new at Citizen Supply is a weekend pop-up market. Stop by on Saturday and Sunday from noon to 7 p.m. to shop handcrafted items from a rotating roster of brands.
Downstairs, PCM has welcomed the first location of the Amour Vert boutique outside its California home. The lofty space carries ecofriendly, ethically made women’s and children’s clothing, as well as home products, cookbooks and curated accessories. While shoppers minimize waste here, they’ll also be contributing to environmental growth, as the label partners with the nonprofit conservation organization American Forests to plant a tree for every T-shirt sold.
