Bonner, Jeanne. “Sweet Auburn Curb Market Viewed as Business Incubator”. Atlanta Journal Constitution. Accessed February 18, 2016. http://www.ajc.com/news/business/sweet-auburn-curb-market-viewed-as-business-incuba/nQnzB/.
In this article from the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Bonner includes the personal stories of people that have been affected by the Sweet Auburn Market in Atlanta, Georgia. Bonner argues that the Sweet Auburn Market provides entrepreneurial opportunity for members of the Atlanta community. The market strikes people in many different ways. It can be looked at as a place of history, a joining of community, or a convenient place to stop for lunch. However, in this article, the market is a place of reliance for people like Matt Hinton and Brounstein. For entrepreneurs like these men, the market has been offering a place where a new or small business can have the chance to be successful since it opened in 1924. The market provides an opportunity to vendors to have a stall as opposed to having to dedicate much more time and money to open a storefront.
I may use this article in my writing to show the effect the market has on those who have taken advantage of the vendor stalls and to explain how the market can be effective for those who do not have the money to invest in a storefront. I will explore how markets like these can affect the lives of those who seek a better life by becoming a vendor, and how this opportunity for low income vendors can improve the overall economy of Atlanta.
