Products made in Atlanta aren’t few and far between. A mixture of products made in Atlanta can be found at a Farmers Market, The Beehive Atlanta, Atlanta MADE, Root City Market, and Made Again to name a few shops. Original items range from indie, gourmet foods to sustainable furniture, but my favorites are the craftsman, plant-based skincare and then comes the Southern sweets. The numerous homemade products consist of varying trademarks such as locally sourced ingredients even aged to perfection or handpicked and handmade. The creations originate from various backgrounds and skills. If you’re a city native or lover of the Gate City of the South looking to experience some unique goods our good folks offer, I give you some of the very best products from small and emerging businesses made in the (Empire State of the) South.

Stay Gold Candles the most delicious and nostalgic scents you’ll ever encounter. If you grew up in a Southern kitchen and the boonies a few scents will take you back in time. Like sugar cookies, forest zephyrs, apples. I adore these candles due to the natural soy element and wood wick; hand poured with dainty tea cup option and the lovely owner’s charitable donations.
