Much-Awaited Marietta Square Market Opens Its Doors
First announced in 2017, the grand opening of Marietta Square Market has been pushed back a couple of times. Originally scheduled to open its doors in summer 2018, issues with easements and utilities in the converted warehouse caused a few delays. But when Marietta Square Market celebrated its grand opening on Thursday, March 28, it proved that good things come to those who wait.
Something New and Delicious
Inspired by the success of the adaptive-reuse food halls of Atlanta, developers have been hard at work renovating an old warehouse in Marietta’s historic town square. Eighteen different shops and food vendors are now nestled within the Market, offering everything from ice cream and ramen to crepes and Cajun dishes. Marietta Square Market is just a few blocks away from our office, and it goes without saying that we’re really excited for the new lunch options.
Though Marietta Square Market is modeled after the Krog Street and Ponce City markets of Atlanta, developers worked hard to incorporate a distinctly Marietta feel in the area. The first thing visitors see when they approach the Market is a red and cream-colored electricity trolley perched at the top of the steps. This isn’t a replica. This iconic streetcar is the same type that ran between Marietta and Atlanta from 1905 to 1944. Only one of only four cars of this type still in existence, the trolley has found new purpose serving smoothies and drinks to help Market visitors quench their thirst.
Marietta Square Market is one of the many new additions revitalize our old city. We’re excited to see how this fantastic environment will help shape our community. Read also: To Serve the Community
