BELTLINE MARKETPLACE

BeltLine MarketPlace is a pilot program that provides new, affordable commercial space for local, Black-owned businesses. From May through November, participating businesses lease commercially affordable BeltLine-facing storefronts with direct access to the Atlanta BeltLine’s roughly two million annual visitors while also receiving business service support and coaching.   Read More…

BeltLine MarketPlace aims to uplift Black-owned businesses and ensure more equitable access to opportunity. A joint initiative of Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. & Village Market, it is organized in alliance with Atlanta BeltLine Partnership and Atelier 7 Architects and made possible with the generous support of the Kendeda Fund.

Architecturally-designed, artistic shipping containers will pop-up in two locations along the Westside and Eastside Trails, giving entrepreneurs direct access to the well-traveled BeltLine corridor.

Coming in May 2022, the Beltline MarketPlace will launch as a seasonal approach to stabilize, preserve, and create affordable space on the south and west sides of the BeltLine. Applications for the BeltLine MarketPlace are now open to all local, small business owners. If you, or someone you know, is interested in featuring their business on the Atlanta BeltLine.

“This collaboration ensures economic mobility, accessibility, local investment and a way forward as the Beltline begins to nurture relationship with local, independent owned Black owned businesses that have been displaced due to the surge in commercial rents.”
