The Essential Guide to Atlanta Food Halls (Updated June 2023)

The appeal of a food hall is pretty clear for customers – you can choose from a full array of options, usually including a wide variety of cuisines, all in one place. It’s great for expansive palettes and group dining. For chefs and restaurateurs, food halls have plenty of appeal, too – you can do small scale versions of your concepts to test with audiences at much lower cost than opening a full sized brick and mortar restaurant. It’s no surprise that with a talented city like Atlanta, there are hundreds of chefs and restaurateurs ready to show you what they’ve got. And with Food Halls springing up like wildfire around Atlanta, there’s plenty of talent to fill their stalls. We’re highlighting a few of our favorites around metro Atlanta, along with a handful that will be coming soon to our city.

@atlantaeatstv Atlanta you’ve got to check out this alcohol themed food hall at Pratt Pullman Yards! Play darts or ride the mechanical bull, this place is perfect for a group hang or first date. Be sure to get the ube colada at the Don Papas rum station 🍹 #atlantageorgia #atlantafoodies ♬ Lovely Day Austin Millz Remix – Austin Millz


1. Alcohall 

NEIGHBORHOOD – Pullman Yards, Kirkwood
225 Rogers St NE, Atlanta, GA 30317

Pick your poison, literally, at Alcohall, one of the city’s most unique food halls. Each stall features different drinks and spirits, and after a few you’ll definitely want to hop on the mechanical bull they’ve got set up in the middle. Be sure to stop by the Filipino-owned rum station and try the ube colada. There’s also pickleball outdoors, rotating food trucks, and two permanent restaurants right outside if you need to sober up. It’s great for a group hang or day drinking situation. 

Diners at the Chattahoochee Food Works Dining Hall.

2. Chattahoochee Food Works

NEIGHBORHOOD – Upper Westside
1235 Chattahoochee Ave NW, Atlanta, GA 30318

This first food hall has a special place in our heart here at Atlanta Eats – that’s because it’s right next door to our office! This t is one of Atlanta’s biggest food halls, with dozens of vendors from around the world. Our favorites so far have to include Cubanos ATL for their great Cuban sandwiches and Taqueria La Luz for excellent tacos and a dangerously good frozen margarita

3. Citizens Market

3500 Peachtree Rd NE, Atlanta, GA 30326
The newest food halls to enter the space, Citizens Market at Phipps Plaza matches the mall’s elevated nature – the food stall menus have been designed by renowned celebrity chefs, including Iron Chef and Food Network’s Masaharu Morimoto, Dani Garcia and Italian chef Dario Cecchini. With indoor and outdoor spaces to enjoy, along with a fully stocked bar, you can enjoy an afternoon in the sun after a full day of shopping or catching a movie. Look out for stalls that serve umami burgers, chicken shawarma wraps, krispy rice, Italian deli sandwiches and much more.

4. Collective Food Hall at the Coda

756 W Peachtree St NW, Atlanta, GA 30308

The Collective Food Hall at the Coda is where Georgia Tech students and white collar midtown workers can get a taste from unique vendors with innovative takes on classics, like the Smoq’n Hot Grill, which serves a mix of Southern smokehouse and NY deli style sandwiches on one menu, and Humble Mumble, a sandwich shop operated by notable Atlanta chef Justin Dixon. Watch to see our own Joey Weiss try some of Justin’s most delicious, ATL influenced sandwiches.

Diners from the sidewalk at Superica at Krog Street Market

5. Krog Street Market

99 Krog St NE, Atlanta, GA 30307

It’s been nearly a decade since Krog Street Market opened its doors in 2014, and Inman Park, Old Fourth Ward, and Cabbagetown haven’t been the same since. But for all of the development that has sprung up around Krog (and the Atlanta beltline, for that matter) during this time, the quality has never diminished. You can still get incredible cheesesteaks and sandwiches from Fred’s Meat and Bread, Dumplings and Noodles from Gu’s, clever cocktails from Ticonderoga Club and incredibly tasty healthy bowls from Recess that are as delicious as ever!

A birds eye view of the Halcyon Forsyth in Alpharetta

6. Halcyon Forsyth

6365 Halcyon Way, Alpharetta, GA 30005

Folks north of the city have wanted to enjoy food hall fare near them since seeing their in-town counterparts enjoy it for the last 10 years. Thanks to developments like Halcyon, they don’t have to travel ITP at all. And the restaurants aren’t just duplicates of what you see from in town food halls – restaurants at The Halcyon are worth making the trip from ITP to OTP. Stop by Ocean and Acre for a fine dining approach to smoked meats and seafood, or head to Cattle Shed for premium cut steaks and world class pinot. We were also into the pizza from Holmes Slice, a spinoff of acclaimed downtown Alpharetta restaurant, Restaurant Holmes.

The exterior of the Marietta Square Market.

7. Marietta Square Market

NEIGHBORHOOD – Downtown Marietta
68 North Marietta Pkwy NW, Marietta, GA 30060

Heading to downtown Marietta alone, you’ll find great restaurants like the Beard nominated Spring. But if you’re feeling indecisive or looking for a little bit of everything, Marietta Square Market will have you covered. You can find honey marinated Ponko Chicken, great tacos and tequila cocktails from Siete, great bulgogi bowls from Bullgogi, and much more.

The inside of the Atlanta Municipal Market, aka the Sweet Auburn Curb Market

8. The Municipal Market AKA Sweet Auburn Curb Market

NEIGHBORHOOD – Downtown Atlanta
209 Edgewood Ave SE, Atlanta, GA 30303

The food hall in Atlanta with the most history, The Municipal market in Downtown Atlanta’s Sweet Auburn neighborhood, has experienced a renaissance over the last decade plus, serving as the origination of beloved Atlanta brands like Grindhouse Killer Burgers and Bell Street Burritos. Today the continue to foster new food based businesses like Panbury’s Double Crust Pies (get the Southern Breakfast Pie, you won’t regret it) and Rawesome Juicery (where they also have great veggie wraps and smoothies)

Plaza Fiesta in Atlanta, GA.

9. Plaza Fiesta

NEIGHBORHOOD – Buford Highway
4166 Buford Hwy NE, Atlanta, GA 30345

Because Spanish is the main language spoken throughout Latin America, there’s an assumption that it’s a monoculture. But one visit to Plaza Fiesta will dispel you of that notion, where you can see, smell and taste the differences between Peruvian, Mexican, Salvadorian, and more. Make sure to bring your sweet tooth, too, since there’s multiple storefronts with decadent desserts. Plaza Fiesta was recently purchased by Asana Partners, the owners of Krog Street Market, who are known for investing in landmark community spaces. We should see a cosmetic upgrade for Plaza Fiesta soon while it hopefully holds on to its characteristic charm.

Interiors at Politan Row dining hall.

10. Politan Row

NEIGHBORHOOD – Midtown Atlanta
1197 Peachtree St NE Ste 150, Atlanta, GA 30361

Food Halls are great for a delicious lunch or a casual dinner. But when you’re feeling fancy? While beautifully decorated and charming in their own way, there are few food halls in Atlanta with interiors that would match a five star dinner. Except for Politan Row, of course. Come at night for Tandoori Pizza and Wings, then head to the speakeasy in the back, JoJo’s Beloved, for cocktails.

11. Ponce City Market

NEIGHBORHOOD – Midtown Atlanta
675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30308

The big boss of all food halls in Metro Atlanta is Ponce City Market. It’s become a sort of tourist attraction/place to be on the weekend, thanks to multiple places to eat, drink and play. The food hall has a number of favorites that have never left, including Linton Hopkins’ famous H&F Burger, Chef Hector Santiago’s El Super Pan, and Tal Baum’s Bellina Alimentari. There have been some great new additions, however, including Bibi from the owners of Iranian restaurant DelBar, and Pizza Jeans, which is run by Nina + Rafi’s Billy Streck. You’ll always see an outpost from some of Atlanta’s best chefs and restaurateurs at Ponce City Market and that isn’t likely to change any time soon.

Waffles from Waffle Bar at Southern Feed Store in East Atlanta Village.

12. Southern Feed Store

NEIGHBORHOOD – East Atlanta Village
1245 Glenwood Ave SE SUITE 6, Atlanta, GA 30316

One of the more modest food halls on our list, that doesn’t mean you should sleep on Southern Feed Store. They have four excellent options for eating. It starts with Waffle Bar, which makes incredible, Instagram worthy waffle and fried chicken dishes with toppings like S’mores, Banana Pudding, and Jalapeño Cheddar. Other great options there include Woody’s Cheesesteaks and new Korean pop up TKO – The Korean One. They also have an outpost of Grant Park’s Buteo, with Brazilian coffee and caipirinha’s, and a great stage for live performances, DJ’s, and dancing late night. Check out our full East Atlanta Village dining guide here.

13. Qommunity Restaurant Incubator (formerly We Suki Suki)

NEIGHBORHOOD – East Atlanta Village
479-b Flat Shoals Ave SE, Atlanta, GA 30316

This food hall is less focused on creating a five star dine-in experience and more about cultivating great businesses in small stalls inside a modest space. Formerly known as We Suki Suki, the space incubated the widely beloved Poke Burri, which still operates out of the space today. The focus is more global now, with stalls that include Vietnamese favorites from Qafe, Ethiopian bites from Ruki’s Kitchen, and an outpost of Cabbagetown’s beloved Jen Chan’s, Mike Chan’s, with favorites from the menu.

Food and drink from Ph'East at The Battery.

14. Ph’East

925 Battery Ave SE Ste. 1100, Atlanta, GA 30339

Dumplings before dingers? Thanks to Ph’east, you can get Asian favorites before seeing your favorite baseball team, the Atlanta Braves. Ph’east is essentially an outpost of some of Atlanta’s best Asian restaurants, including Poke Burri, 26 Thai and Sushi, Lifting Noodles Ramen and Fan T’Asia. There’s a big bar on-site in an easily navigable space – get one thing from each stall and a beer before first pitch. Don’t save space for the hot dog.
