Founded in 2015, Elk Head Clothing aims to bring timeless fabric and menswear staples to PCM. Located on the second floor of Ponce City Market near Citizen Supply, you’ll find the perfect pieces to take you from work week to weekend. Keep reading to learn more about Elk Head Clothing from co-founder Garrett Hilgendorf.

What is the most exciting thing about opening in Ponce City Market?

Ponce City Market has a life of its own. I really appreciate the history of the building and at the same time PCM is a part of the progressive retail landscape. The BeltLine adds a unique element to the PCM experience that I’m not sure you can find anywhere else.

Describe the Elk Head Clothing shopping experience at PCM. 

When someone walks into Elk Head Clothing we want them to feel a down-to-earth vibe. Sometimes shopping experiences can be a bit contrived, so we hope that we’ve curated a leisurely shopping experience and a collection of goods that you can feel confident about. At Elk Head we talk to our customers and listen to their feedback about our products.  We produce small batch goods so we get the chance to incorporate customers’ ideas and experiences into our design process.  We want them to feel they can be apart of what we are creating- a rugged, refined look composed of the best fabrics and materials.

What is the most popular item at Elk Head Clothing?

Our signature elbow patch shirt design. I think the elbow patches add a different element to our shirts. They are functional and help shirts stand up to everyday wear while also adding subtle character.

What is the best part of being a part of the Atlanta retail community?

Within the retail community in particular it feels like we’re at the beginning of a new scene that values thoughtful craftsmanship in small batches rather than mass production. People want to know about the design, where things are being sourced from and made. This curiosity in the community makes us proud to be an Atlanta-based brand.

What inspires you?

I’m from Michigan and the landscape there definitely influenced my clothing design but Atlanta and its metropolitan feel helped me think about more smart and sophisticated elements that I wanted to add to it. So really, the city culture of Atlanta has inspired me.

What is your can’t-live-without-it clothing staple?

The Oxford shirt.  It is a really versatile piece that can be casual or even formal depending on how you wear it and what you pair it with. Also, Oxford cloth is really durable and naturally resistant to wrinkles, which makes for a great staple.

What is one interesting fact about Elk Head Clothing that people might not know?

When you come into the store you might notice a European mount of an elk on the wall. I shot that Elk in Michigan and that experience and the aesthetics of the elk, its masculine/rugged connotation with modern sophisticated features, inspired the brand.

DISCOVER THE HIDDEN TREASURES OF THE DEEP SEA.

Full of magic and color, the seabed is a place of endless exploration. Like life, we cannot be sure what we will find, but it is not always the outcome that counts – it’s the journey. Expect the unexpected – wonder awaits.

As one of the newest vendors to Citizen Supply located on the 2nd Floor of Ponce City Market, Mattie Tiegreen, the founder of Green Tie Studio, has always had a creative spirit. In the curated lifestyle shop you’ll find painted notebooks from Moglea, hand-poured candles from Simply Curated, and prints from Georgia-photographer Kaitie Bryant. But before you make your way upstairs, here are five things you need to know:

  1. The name Green Tie Studio comes from Mattie’s own last name, Tiegreen. After endlessly explaining that it’s not “Tee-green” but “Tye-green,” like a green tie, the name stuck.

Kaitie Bryant

  1. Mattie started her career making wedding invitations. Her first company, Puddleduck Paper Co., carried only paper products, and her love for paper and paint is apparent in the number of stationary items in the Green Tie shop.
  2. At Green Tie Studio, everything is in the details. Mattie says she would happily spend days wrestling over the perfect font style for a project.

What started as a delicious gelato food truck in 2011 will now open its first brick and mortar location at the Ponce City Market Central Food Hall this fall. Honeysuckle Gelato, a southern take on a favorite frozen treat, will be serving up customer favorites in addition to new flavors inspired by local ingredients.

We caught up with Wes Jones, co-founder of Honeysuckle Gelato, to talk about opening their store at Ponce City Market, where they draw inspiration for new flavors, and what we can expect from this Southern-inspired gelato.

What is the most exciting part about going from a food truck to a space at PCM?

Well, we had no air conditioning on the truck so that’s a major plus right off the bat. But in all seriousness, being part of Ponce City Market has given Honeysuckle Gelato a level of credibility that we’ve worked very hard to achieve. We’re in awe of the amazing chefs and businesses also in Ponce City Market; being in their company is humbling and scary and surreal all at once. To have our names share space with the likes of Sean Brock, Linton Hopkins, Hugh Acheson and Annie Quatrano… it’s hard to comprehend. When we look back at the food truck, we look back with pride and fond memories, but it also reminds us how far we’ve come.

What is the most popular Honeysuckle Gelato flavor?

Sea-Salted Caramel is far and away our most popular flavor.

What made PCM a good fit for Honeysuckle Gelato?

We always wanted a brick-and-mortar location, but we were very patient and selective when looking for the right space. It had to be the right fit for the Honeysuckle brand. Ponce City Market was our dream spot from day one because it combined all of the things we hoped for. I’m particularly excited because I live just down the BeltLine in Reynoldstown!

What is your favorite part of the PCM Central Food Hall?

The quality and diversity of food options at Ponce City Market is unmatched. I’m also excited about how open the space is. There will be plenty of room to relax both inside and outside; I love that visitors can sit at tables or just wander through the building, enjoying its many amenities.

What is the best part of being an Atlanta-based business?

I think Atlanta has really embraced small and local businesses of all types, so it’s a very exciting time to own a business in Atlanta. It’s also an exciting time for food all across the country, but especially in Atlanta, so we feel like we’re getting the best of both worlds. Atlantans take pride in their food and do a great job supporting those who make it. We’re certainly grateful.

What inspires you or inspire flavors for Honeysuckle Gelato?

We look for inspiration everywhere. We started the business with the idea of “combining the rich and smooth texture of gelato with the decadent flavors and desserts of the South.” I mean, our tagline is “Southern-inspired gelato,” so our initial inspiration came from our friends and families and the food we grew up making and enjoying with them. Now we constantly have customers and chefs asking us to make something different and unique for them. Some of those suggestions have led to a few of our favorite flavors. For example, a friend suggested we make a Biscoff-flavored gelato, which then morphed into a Biscoff gelato with peanuts and pretzels – and then we added caramel because we can’t resist adding caramel when given the opportunity – and “Snacks on a Plane” was born. So our friend and Delta Air Lines get credit for that one.

Will there be any flavors making their debut at the Central Food Hall?

Absolutely! And the best part is most of them will come from our customers because of how we’re going to offer everything. Our philosophy at Honeysuckle Gelato is that no matter how delicious a particular flavor of gelato, it’s merely a single component of a dessert. For that reason, each serving you order from us at our retail location will offer at least three elements in it. We’ll provide a great selection of gelato, baked goods, and toppings that will give customers the opportunity to create some truly memorable desserts by choosing any combination of those three elements. We will of course list some of our favorite combinations, but we’re more excited about what people will come up with!

What is one thing that Honeysuckle Gelato fans might not know about their favorite treat?

We’re very excited to roll out a new give-back program at Ponce City Market. We’ll donate five percent of all of our proceeds to the Atlanta Community Food Bank. We want people to know that when they enjoy our gelato at Ponce City Market, they’re helping feed someone in need. Additionally, we work with the 180 Kitchen Culinary Arts Program at City of Refuge. We’ve already hired one amazing graduate of the program, and our second hire from the program starts soon! We know gelato is a treat and should be enjoyed as such, but we also want to make a difference in the city that has given us so much. Calories don’t count if they’re part of contributing to a good cause, right?

There’s still work to be done, but Ponce City Market is moving right along and we’re proud to announce our diverse array of food and retail set to open in 2015. This curated mix of retailers, Central Food Hall purveyors, local innovators and office tenants are coming together to serve the Atlanta community.

We’re building a place that Atlantans can be proud of, where we can reflect on our past and where we can grow together to help shape the future of our city. Take a look at what we’ve got in the works – we can’t wait to share it with you:

 

Central Food Hall

07 16 2015 | Posted in Tenants

We have been anxiously waiting for this day – when we can finally start sharing concepts in the Central Food Hall! Atlanta Magazine posted a great article yesterday with more details, but here are the high points:

  • Dub’s Fish Camp by James Beard Award winning chef Anne Quatrano.  You may know her from several restaurants at our sister property, Westside Provisions District.   The casual-style fish shack opening in spring 2015 will feature a raw shell counter, housemade sandwiches and steamed fish bowls.
  • H&F Burger by Linton Hopkins – another James Beard award winning chef.  Visitors to Ponce City Market will have access to the famous H&F burger and fries 7 days a week!  The central food hall will also boast an outpost of the acclaimed H&F Bakery.
  • Jia, a Szechuan restaurant by Dahe Yang and chef Jiguo Jiang.  This duo knows what they’re doing – they are the operators of Tasty China and Peter Cheng’s Tasty China 2.
  • Honeysuckle Gelato from Wes Jones.  This kiosk will not only carry the product we have come to know and love, but also will introduce new products including gelato popsicles, floats, sandwiches, and more.
  • Simply Seoul Kitchen from co-owners Hannah Chung and Grace Lee.  You may have met them selling artisanal kimchee, sauces, and steamed buns at a local farmer’s market of Food Cart Sundays last year.
