Celebrate International Women's Day at these events and women-owned restaurants

March 8 marks International Women's Day, an annual recognition of women's achievements.

Here, we list events and some of the women-owned restaurants, culinary and beverage businesses throughout metro Atlanta, in honor of International Women’s Day.


Lady Locavaores. Community Farmers Markets is hosting this event that celebrates the women of Atlanta's local food movement. A team of all-women chefs and bartenders -- including Yohana Solomon from Kushina Catering, Holly Chute from Georgia Grown and The Drinking Coach Tiffanie Barriere and Rosie Blair from Empire State South -- will create the food and drink for the evening, with ingredients sourced from local farmers and artisans. In addition, CFM will present awards to four women who have helped other women in the food industry. Funds from the event will be directed towards CFM's culinary education program, which helps increase food and nutritional literacy through at-market and in-neighborhood educational cooking demonstrations for the community.

6-8 p.m. March 8. $50. The Trolley Barn, 963 Edgewood Ave. NE, Atlanta. eventbrite.com/e/lady-locavores-2018-tickets-42638209031?aff=personal
