Candler Park resident Anandi Salinas still remembers how excited she was when the residential/retail hub Ponce City Market opened its doors in 2015.
“I was like, ‘Oh! Let’s go check out Ponce City Market!’ And we walked over there, and I needed to buy a yoga mat," she says.
The mat she ended up buying cost $80—which is pricey for a grad student like her.
“And I was like, ‘This is the most expensive thing I’ve ever bought,’ and I quickly felt really out of place, and I just bought it and left.”
