This European-style market and bakery has an old world traditional ambiance that will make you feel like you’ve slipped away to a place in a story book. Freshly baked bread, gourmet pantry foods, and eloquent dining are available from morning until late Monday-Saturday. The only thing that may be more captivating than the market is Alon’s story. To paraphrase, he grew up in Israel, worked in bakeries throughout Europe, immigrated to the United States in the 1980s and settled in Georgia where he met the love of his life, started a family, and never looked back. He used his skills as a baker and experience in European markets to recreate the experience in Atlanta. It’s a lovely little gem of a place to visit!
