The Municipal Market is a melting pot of all of the cultures across Atlanta. From poor to rich, old to young, and just about any race, there is something for just about everyone in this market. Take, for example, these two markets. On the surface, they sell very similar things, Burritos and various South American foods. A deeper look, however, reveals the differences in presentation between these two stores. The one on the right has a more contemporary feel to it, with modern culinary instruments and menus on paper. Customers have no place to sit in for this store, which encourages customers to get their food while on the go. The store on the left, in comparison, has an older feel to it. The menu is written on a chalkboard on the right side of the store, and because the store is shaped like a corner, there is a designated sitting area for this restaurant. Another difference between these two is the prices. The more modern store has higher prices and provides less food for the price, while the older store has lower prices and provides more food for the price.


Another symbol for the diversity in culture is on the outside of the market. There is a large painting of various different people on the side of the building, all with different genders, races, and ages. This painting is a good symbol of showing how the Market incorporates various different cultures within it. Essentially, through the incorporation of stores of varying goods, prices, and locations, Sweet Auburn Curb Market appeals to people of all ages, race, and genders.
