Origin Market is really close to opening in its forever home.
Pending approvals from City Hall and the Fulton County Health Department, the restaurant and market could reopen downtown the first week of September, or sooner.
Origin Market’s new home is the now-shuttered Copperblue space, at 117 M.L.K. Jr Dr. SW, Luke Reid, the company’s co-owner, confirmed in a telephone interview with What Now Atlanta Tuesday.
In its new home, Origin Market will be two levels.
On the ground floor will be a sit-down restaurant for breakfast and lunch. The second level will house a “full-scale” market with local milk, eggs, jams, jellies, fruit, and much more.
“The space has an old nostalgic look and all the numbers were really good,” Reid said.
On the menu will be everything from house made pastries and cakes to pizzas to smoothies to hot breakfast items.
Origin Market has been displaced since April when Reid and his wife Leti were unable to reach terms with the newish owners of 2 Peachtree Street, the company’s original home since 1993.
In April, the company had a short stint sharing a space with co-working concept Post Office in Underground Atlanta.
That relationship ended in June and the Reids announced they would move to the Healey Building.
But they pulled out of that deal because the space didn’t have the amenities necessary to operate their business, Reid said.
