Fall is here in Atlanta, the leaves are beginning to change and the evenings are cool and crisp. As if on que, every Saturday morning through December, Piedmont Park plays host to the Green Market, a great place to buy organic vegetables, fresh flowers, homemade bread, honey, soap and special doggie biscuits. Just browsing by each vendor booth reveals neat treats and goodies which you’ll be tempted to purchase and bring back home.
Speaking of treats, Halloween is just around the corner and apparantly face painting by local “witches” is in vogue. The child in the photo seems unphased about the applicators’ appearance. Must be the calming influence of the hat!?! Oh well, best to just continue on and wander around sampling the cooked and prepared specialties available throughout the market.
Piedmont Park is only four blocks north of the Inn and is Atlanta’s largest and most popular park. Recent and ongoing rennovations have made it an exceptional asset to the City and it is heavily used for recreation by Midtown residents in particular. Our visiting guests love it!
