Sunday Sneak Peek: Best Picnic Spot in Atlanta

June 20, 2010

Atlanta, lovingly known as “a city among the trees”, has proven itself to be abundant in luscious green spots to lay a blanket and enjoy a fine dining experience with Mother Nature.  With so many popular spots (read: Stone Mountain, Piedmont Park) abounding and well-known, we went to the experts at Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International and were pleasantly surprised to discover a breezy spot you will be delighted to picnic.

Peggy Hibbert, once again chimed in with her favorite:  Lullwater Park.   The entrance to the park on Clifton Road in Druid Hills, was originally the driveway to the President of Emory’s  home.   The park includes the wooded entry road, an open field for play and picnics, and a path around the lake which is home to wildlife, including ducks on the island in the lake.  There is also an old wheel house with a waterfall.    It’s like a trip to the Georgia mountains in the heart of Druid Hills.

Great picnics and a little something for the whole family

Chastain Park might be a well-known place but did you know that Jay Memory, founding member of Memory Dean, comes to the playground area every Tuesday between 4-7pm (May-October) ?  Known as the “Chastain Chill” Jay leads sing alongs for both the kids and the adults.  Carson Matthews, Buckhead’s Green Agent, loves to take his two kids: “It’s a very interactive musical experience and they have so much fun.  It’s a great chance to relax after work during the spring, summer and fall”.

As a sidenote, Jay Memory also performs at the East Cobb Park in “The Ultimate Playdate” Wednesday nights through the fall.  For more information click here.

Sunday Sneak Peek: Best neighborhood farmer’s market

June 14, 2010

Welcome to our new weekly blog feature: Sunday Sneak Peek!   Each Sunday we will feature a “Best of Atlanta”-where will explore some well-known and lesser known gems that make our home in Atlanta such a fine city to live in!

When surveying the Atlanta Fine Homes team on the best neighborhood farmer’s market,   Margaret Rodbell, Mike Bugg, Sandra Carey and Jenny Pruitt all raved about the:

Peachtree Road Farmers Market at Cathedral of St. Phillips
2744 Peachtree Road, NW
Atlanta, Georgia 30305
April 10, 2010- December 18, 2010
April – August: 8:30 am to 12:30 pm
Sept. – December: 9 am to 12:30 pm

With a vendor list eight pages long, you are sure to find something sweet, something organic, something fresh and something even for your furry friend here!  Plenty of parking!

Peggy Hibbert , a native Atlantean and agent in the Buckhead office,  had no problem identifying her favorite: “The farmer’s market in Virginia Highland/Morningside is FABULOUS!  It’s been going for a long time, so there are a lot of participants with great quality and diversity of choice.  Of course, the produce is amazing; there is also organic meat, flowers, handmade items, i.e., soap and bath salts, cooking classes, etc.  The restaurant adjacent to the market, Rosebud uses the produce in their menu and when you’re finished browsing the market, you can cross the street to Alon’s, the best French bakery in town and get a cinnamon twist and great coffee.   Just one more reason why people love living in VaHighland/Morningside.”

Adrian Smith loves to shop locally and enjoys the many options that Atlanta offers to buy organically.    She  highly recommends The Piedmont Park Green Market. “They always have live music playing, a wide variety of veggies, cheeses, meats, some dairy products and even doggie treats! There are tons of dogs around (all on leashes of course). They also have handmade jewelry and other custom crafts, all being local! There are even live cooking demonstrations, as well as coffee and delicious morning treats like danishes and such to munch on while you’re shopping. The farmer’s have mostly been the same ones selling there for years. It’s nice to feel like you have a relationship with the people who are growing your food. Then, you can take a walk through Piedmont Park once you’re done shopping. Who doesn’t love that? I don’t think you have to be certified organic to sell food at this market, which is nice because there are so many wonderful farmers that don’t have the money to go through the certification process, but practice growing everything naturally and most of them would be glad for you to come out to the farm and see for yourself.”
