Ponce City Market plans expansion to main dining hall

Ponce City Market’s food hall is already home to a myriad of dining options ⁠— from fried chicken to ramen, tacos and breakfast grub served all day.

Shortly after opening, the food hall even got a nod from Vogue magazine as one of the best in the country.

Now, the giant mixed-use development is planning to make room for additional restaurant space, the Atlanta Business Chronicle reports.

The plan is to convert current offices into space for a new eatery and kiosk, according to the outlet.

However, it’s currently unclear what is expected to fill the space.

There is also a vacant space on the market’s second floor, which housed the bar and restaurant Mercury, before it closed earlier this year.
