Atlanta Weekend

With just one school year left in the ATL, I’ve been spending my weekends at some of my favorite spots in the city. That’s why a recent Sunday consisted of a visit to Krog Street Market for shopping and eating with friends.

First things first, a look at some of the things that I wanted to buy (but didn’t) from crazybeautifulwonderful home store, The Merchant :

Post-Merchant perusing, friends and I walked over to a pop-up craft market down the street, where there was no shortage of silk-screened T’s and samples of uber-artisanal (I’m talking pumpkin chai-flavored) chocolate, so that was sort of ideal.

At the entrance to the market was a bicycle cart topped with vases filled with flowers. Some of the vases were actually just old jugs of cold brew coffee, and I decided that nothing more perfect has ever existed:

As it turns out, window shopping works up an appetite, so we made our way back to our favorite food stall, Yalla, (remember it from here?) for a bit of a Middle Eastern feast. I chose to make my own bowl, which I got lined with hummus and topped with Israeli salad, beets, coleslaw, olives, pickles, a hardboiled egg, and a drizzle of tahini. Not nearly as photogenic as it was delicious, I promise.

As they say, a Sunday well spent brings a week of content. What do your Sundays look like?
