The Sweet Smell of Success

Congratulations to our very own Sweet Auburn BBQ. According to a recent poll by the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Sweet Auburn BBQ is the “Best place to get barbeque in Atlanta.”

People were pretty fired up about their barbecue. And Owner, Howard Hsu and his staff showed them what it’s all about.

Here are the rankings:

House Band 



The group “evolution,” which consists of middle and high school performers, entertained the Market customers on Saturdays this summer with some wonderful jazz tunes.

The concept of evolution was born in the spring of 2016.  The band actually evolved from an earlier band called INJA (Inman Jazz All-Stars). INJA was conceived by Jay Hammond, the saxophone player, as a way to bring together some of his middle school band mates for the purpose of recording an album.  Proceeds from the sale of the album were to be used to support the Inman Middle School band program and a non-profit (Citizen Advocacy) located in the Candler Park (Atlanta, Ga) neighborhood.

 In the wake of his positive experience with INJA, Jay continued his successful collaboration with Arneesa Woods, music director at Inman Middle School.  The two of them, along with Max Seldes, drummer from INJA, invited three other talented young musicians to join their current adventure; which has become evolution.









Manager’s Message 

Every Day is a New Day

 One of my favorite things about the market is its ever-changing vibe. There’s always something new and fresh happening, a new featured variety from one of the eateries, or a “Pop-Up” vendor offering their wares from a table set near the entrance.

This month, we will officially welcome our newest restaurant, Three Cities Pizza. Owner and chef, Tony Accurso, brought his management and marketing skills to us less than a year ago when he took over the original Grindhouse Killer Burgers.

Under his leadership the popular lunch spot has boomed. Tony is always looking for new ideas and ways to make his business better. Having met the challenge of improving on an almost perfect spot, he decided to move on to pizza.

During his youth, he worked steadily in a pizza restaurant in Detroit. Once he entered the corporate world, he brought his love of the art home and treated family and friends to fresh pizzas, including the theatrical toss of the dough.

His concept, three cities, refers to three styles; New York, Chicago, and Detroit. Each one is unique and delectable. His menu includes a meatball sandwich, an out of this world veggie Panini, and fresh salads. There’s something for every appetite.

Not in the mood to cook tonight, stop in and grab a “Take and Bake” on your way home.

Look for an opening in late August or early September.
