Formerly located along the Experiential Path between the Exhibition Hall and Smithgall (Flag) Student Services Building during the John Lewis Student Center construction, the Community Market is back at Tech Walkway. The Market is held every Wednesday between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on the south end of Tech Green.  

The Community Market focuses on featuring Atlanta businesses and farmers and creating educational and awareness opportunities around sustainability and healthy living. Students, faculty, and staff can expect a consistent experience each week when they visit the market, where they can grab lunch, browse local and student vendors, and learn more about the robust community at Georgia Tech centered on sustainability and wellbeing.  

Expect a diverse offering of local food vendors, student organizations, campus departments, produce vendors, co-op groceries, and even a mobile bike repair shop.  

Hot Food Vendors 

The market supports a variety of local, independent food vendors who serve exciting dishes such as crepes, Mediterranean cuisine, Cuban sandwiches, and Jamaican food. 

Student Artists 

Several Tech students table at the market to sell the art that they have created, such as jewelry, paintings, and stickers. 

Campus Departments and Organizations 

Various campus organizations are present at the market, sharing information about their sustainability-related work, such as the student garden, health and well-being, and the Students’ Temporary Assistance and Resources (STAR) initiative. 

Rise ‘n Shine offers another opportunity for food from local vendors through their Local Farm Box program. Box pick-up takes place on Tuesdays at the Kendeda Building. 

Campus departments or student organizations with sustainability-related work that are interested in getting involved can reach out to Malte Weiland at malte.weiland@aux.gatech.edu.
