Without local markets, shoppers would buy gifts exclusively from in-flight catalogs, forcing fathers to sneak into airplane wheel wells on Black Friday to order spy-camera blenders for their children. Enjoy earthbound browsing with today's Groupon to Atlanta Indie Market in Decatur, which opens on Saturday, June 4, and continues on Saturdays through October. Choose between two options:
- For $5, you get $10 worth of fresh market fare, gifts, and goods.
- For $35, you get a general vendor booth (a $75 value).
Atlanta Indie Market's inviting indoor-outdoor location bursts with fresh eats, distinctive jewelry, and a miscellany of market goodies from local businesses. Peruse a multitude of merchandise, from kids' clothes and handmade art to vintage books that contain even older books inside them. Gents can lather up with natural soap from Beard Bars ($9), and interior decorators can peruse original art and prints from Maggie Grace Design ($20+). Brain Freeze Snowballs' shaved ice cools overheated shoppers ($2–$4), and Azalees Bakery's organic dog treats keep pooches healthy enough to be ridden to work, saving money on gas ($7–$12).
Greenhorn vendors can opt to lock down one of the market's 10'x10' booths to hawk their wares to the roaming crowds. Marketing, promotion, and basic signage are provided, but vendors must supply their own chairs, table coverings, fixtures, and fast-talking apothecary.
