Interior Built Environment Description Sweet Auburn Market

The Sweet Auburn Curb Market, on Edgewood Avenue in Atlanta, Georgia, strikes people in many different ways. It can be visualized as a piece of Atlanta’s history, a gathering place of community, or a convenient place to stop for lunch. Walking through the maze of booths, there is so much to see and to smell. As soon as you enter the market, the smells of grilled hamburgers and sweet popcorn fill your nose.   The environment symbolizes a warehouse with the visible, rustic piping and concrete flooring. The neatly decorated booths clearly advertise what they sell and are more professional looking than a typical market. The authentic decor at each station makes it unique from the rest and makes some stations more attractive than others depending on the shopper’s preference.   Throughout the building there are vendors that sell fresh fruits and vegetables, fresh meat, and they even have a walk up pharmacy for convenience. As a visitor of Atlanta, the market is a must-see landmark, and it can easily be enjoyed from being surrounded by the smiling faces and freshly cooked food. On the other hand, booths like the pharmacy are more commonly visited by the community members as opposed to the Atlanta explorers. Families of Atlanta have relied on the market for decades in the case that they do not have the transportation to go to a grocery store. For some, the market is the only place where access to fresh food is available. “Sweet Auburn Curb Market Photos.” Yelp. N.p., n.d.
