Having launched in October in the heart of downtown Atlanta, just outside of bustling Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Night Market offers expansive greenspace, enticing guests to come shop, drink, eat, and stay a while. Here visitors have the chance to engage and converse with incredible culinary talent including chefs from The Federal, The Spotted Trotter, Sweet Auburn BBQ, Shake Shack, American Cut, Honeysuckle Gelato, Wheelies Tiny Donuts and Hattie B’s to name a few. Guests will also be able to shop an impressive selection of goods at the artisan market, curated by Atlanta favorite, Indie Craft Experience, to a soundtrack of live music provided by the Sundogs.

“At Night Market, we want our guests to feel as if they’re attending a backyard party with close family and friends,” says Latonda Henderson, Director of Community Activation for Mercedes-Benz Stadium. “Our goal was to create this personal experience where you can walk up to renowned chefs and beverage experts and swap recipes, pick their brains and just chat as if you were at a friend’s house. The culinary talent we have selected for each Night Market are all part of the movement to elevate Atlanta’s reputation as a top foodie destination, and to be able to have this interactive experience with them is really special.”
