CIRCA is an auxiliary educational group of APC that offers monthly behind-the-scenes tours of select historic sites in Atlanta and nearby areas.

Most of the original Krog Street Market structure was completed in the 1920’s as part of the much larger Stove Works complex which opened in 1889.  Stove production ceased during the 1960’s and most of the building remained vacant until it was sold in the 1980’s.  The entire factory was spread out along Krog Street from Edgewood to Irwin.  The Krog Street Market building was used for awhile by Atlanta Stage Works and later by Tyler Perry Studios. 

 

The current building was renovated and expanded in 2014 by Paces Properties (also the owner and developer of Vinings Village in Smyrna).    The entire complex is about 30,000 square feet, with about 10,000 square feet dedicated to the common food court and small retail shops.  In addition to the food court there are four sit down restaurants including:  Superica (Mexican),  Izakaya (Japanese), The Luminary (French-American Seafood), and The Cockentrice (Southern-American).  Average rents range from $36-40 per square foot per year.  Total cost of the project was approximately $18,000,000.

 Meet near the open air plaza and picnic tables adjacent to the beer and wine shop (north side of building).  Krog Street Market is all about food….arrive hungry!
