Spring has sprung in Atlanta, and it’s brought sunny Beltline walks, floral friends and a charming coat of yellow pollen along with it. But something else is popping up this week, and that’s Root City Market. A quarterly pop-up makers market founded in 2013, Root City will open its doors at our neighbor StoveWorks this Saturday, April 18 from 10am to 4pm.
Featuring 40+ vendors ranging from apparel and accessories to bath products and art, Root City is showcasing our buds The Bitter Southerner, Xocolatl, Modern Giant and Plywood Made, among so many others. But Root City doesn’t stop there. In addition to the vendors, graphic designer and community virtuoso Sarah Lawrence will present interactive installations celebrating our community like a giant coloring book titled “Exquisite City,” local recording studio The Cottage will provide some tunes in the form of singer-songwriter Sydney Eloise and, of course, Earth Day-inspired activities will be available for the kiddos.
A family affair and community celebration, Root City is bringing it all to the table this year, and we can’t wait. Check out specifics (including information on the $500 Makers Giveaway) here, and be sure to say hello. We’ll be walking around, taking it all in and eating goodies from local favorites including Doggy Dogg, Homespun and Wanderlust. Did we mention it’s free? See you there!
