Ponce City Market, Atlanta’s iconic mixed-use community hub, announces that Souk Bō’hēmian – a Black-, women- and queer-owned retail shop offering ready-to-wear fashion, home goods and handmade accessories – will open on the second floor of the Central Food Hall on Friday, May 6.
Founded as an online shop in 2016 by Atlanta-based best friends and business partners Morgan-Ashley Bryant and Vanessa Coore Vernon, Souk Bō’hēmian’s first brick-and-mortar location aims to introduce new and different cultures to the Atlanta community. In celebration of the shop’s grand opening day, guests can shop while listening to sounds by DJ Duhcotoe from Bae WorldWide, receive giveaways with any purchase and more.
Souk Bō’hēmian is an extension of the bō’hēmian brands, a hospitality and lifestyle company that encapsulates the ethos, spirit and soul of nomads worldwide. The Ponce City Market shop will offer apparel collections that are approachable for everyone with styles ranging from sweatshirts, tees and joggers to luxurious double-cotton jumpsuits and linen kimonos and tops. It will also offer home goods and decor ranging from decorative paper mache bowls and marble candle holders to handwoven rugs and vintage, handmade furniture. By partnering with local and global artisans, the shop will bring minimal palettes and global aesthetics to Ponce City Market’s roster of locally-owned retail brands.
“We invite guests to stroll through Souk Bō’hēmian as they would a bazaar in North Africa or their favorite local market,” says Morgan-Ashley in a statement. “We believe in nurturing immersive, genuine connections with people who believe in the beauty of experiences, and we want our Ponce City Market shop to be an experience for anyone who comes through our doors.”
