The Sweet Auburn Market was a wonderful place to visit, especially all of the delicious praline and popcorn at Miss Dee's. This is now a "must" stop every time I am in Atlanta.
The Sweet Auburn neighborhood is one of the most important communities in Atlanta history. Recent and planned improvements (murals of civil rights leaders, the planned streetcar route, etc.) are giving this neighborhood much needed beautification and accessibility. The Sweet Auburn Market is not to be missed - there are a wide variety of delicious eateries.
For anyone who is old enough to have been there (or too young to remember) this walk through the childhood neighborhood of Martin Luther King, Jr. is an opportunity to experience the setting he grew up in and the influences in his life.
