Everything you need to know about Krog Street MarketOne of Atlanta’s vibrant dining and shopping destinations, Krog Street Market has been making a name for itself ever since it opened. Paces Properties developed the former hybrid warehouse and factory, transforming it into a lively space filled with shops, restaurants and food stalls where goods, food and produce are sold.
In August and September of 2014, The Collective, The Luminary and Cafe Izakaya were the first three tenants to open at Krog. Only two months later in November, Krog Street Market officially opened to the public.
Krog Street Market history
The space currently known as KSM to Atlantans wasn’t always a stomping ground for eateries, cocktails and shopping. In the 1880s, Atlanta Stove Works built an enterprise selling the Barrett Range, a stove made of cast iron. In the years to follow, the abandoned factory space was used to house offices and restaurants, until Tyler Perry purchased it as the site of his studio in 2008.
And only eight years later, KSM opened in the Inman Park neighborhood as a mecca for experiencing a taste of what the city of Atlanta has to offer.
