Honor Earth Day at this environmentally conscious pop-up market at Ponce City Market
Atlanta Green Market Fair announced plans to host over 40 local “green” brands in a pop-up style market, complete with live music and a full-day’s schedule of educational environmental programming, including speakers, panels, workshops and more!
The one-day event will double as a fundraiser for local environmental non-profits and feature early-stage environmental entrepreneurs, sustainability-focused academic programs and green jobs.
Businesses at the market include Fresh Harvest, a subscription-based organic grocery delivery service, and The Jack Ellis Company, a maker of custom reclaimed-wood furniture, and many more.
Atlanta Green Market’s lead organizer Tyler Thompson said, “Everything needed to actually solve the environmental problem already exists. Those who are able just have to start adopting better alternatives to polluting goods and services. It goes far beyond the reduce, reuse, recycle mantra.”
“The Atlanta Green Market Fair is a start on how to do that. Come and discover a better way of packaging, building furniture, managing waste, consuming electricity, commuting, eating, and so much more. All of it right here in Atlanta, Georgia.”
Activities will kick off on Saturday, April 23rd at 9:00 AM with ‘Yoga in The Yard’. The market is set to open at 10:00 AM and close at 6:00 PM on the same day. Following Earth Day weekend, Atlanta Green Market will host ongoing, weekly pop-up markets featuring many of the same brands slated to attend the fair.
