We are so excited Carver Neighborhood Market is coming to South Atlanta. It wasn’t too long ago that almost the entire City of Atlanta was a food desert and people had to travel to DeKalb's Farmers Market to get their produce. But not anymore, the Carver Neighborhood Market will be opening a 2,000-square-foot grocery store in the middle of an area lacking healthy food options. Carver Neighborhood Market believes that food can unite people and communities together across lines that too often divide us. The market will be located at 1297 Jonesboro Rd Atlanta GA 30315.
