In the midst of chilly season, this Canadian retailer known for cozy basics has landed two locations in town. (The first opened at Ponce City Market in November; the second is set to arrive in Buckhead this March.) Three reasons we love their comfy styles:
Starting this Friday, the West End MARTA station will be home to a pop-up farmstand, showcasing produce from urban farms in Southwest Atlanta. The stand, which will operate every Friday from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. until early October, is a pilot program that MARTA hopes to duplicate across its other 37 stations in Atlanta. The market will also double the value of SNAP EBT dollars for shoppers with food stamps.
Lyn Deardorff didn’t start canning until she got engaged and met her future, canning-obsessed, mother-in-law. Flash forward 40 years, and today she’s one of the South’s resident canning experts, teaching classes as Preserving Now at Piedmont Park, Serenbe, and the Nashville Farmers Market.
Doug Peterson sells the last thing anybody would expect from a college professor working in rural Georgia: caviar. But just outside Chattanooga—three hours northwest of the University of Georgia, where he works as a professor of fisheries and aquatic sciences—Peterson produces the state’s only sustainable caviar at a 5,000-square-foot facility in the town of Cohutta.
A new Thai restaurant called Bangkok Station (550 Pharr Road, Atlanta 30305) will open in Buckhead this April. Owner Ratinthon Nithithanawut and chef Nathaphak (Paul) Maphu will use their restaurant experience in Thailand to forge an authentic dining experience inspired by the rail system there—hence the name Bangkok Station.
If you’ve ever used Instacart for its convenience and bought a CSA share for its local quality, Local Roots is for you.

Chef Steven Satterfield of Miller Union will celebrate the launch of his first cookbook, Root to Leaf: A Southern Chef Cooks Through the Seasons, at the Atlanta Botanical Garden this Sunday. The event begins at 2 p.m. Tickets start at $50, but pony up $75 and you'll also get a signed copy of the book, which retails for $45. Proceeds from ticket sales benefit Slow Food Atlanta.
Brazilian steakhouse Chama Gaucha will open for lunch and dinner this March in Buckhead in the same plaza as Farm Burger on Piedmont Road. In true churrascaria style, the restaurant will revolve around an antipasti bar that will showcase charcuterie, cheese, and salads. Slow-roasted, high quality cuts of meat cooked over an open fire will be paraded around the restaurant on spits. Picanha, the prime cut of the sirloin, will be the house specialty.
On the heels of The El Felix, Ford Fry’s first Mexican restaurant in Alpharetta, Superica opens today for lunch and dinner at Krog Street Market. Here’s a first look at the menu and the interior of the restaurant, which chef Sheldon Wolfe will run after the opening. Live music and breakfast service are coming soon.
