One of the best kept secrets in Atlanta has gotten out!  Le Petit Marché opened in Kirkwood in 2008 as just that–a little market–offering unique pantry items, fresh breads and cheeses, and other locally sourced and home made fare.  Since then they’ve become popular for serving up some of the most delicious breakfasts and lunches in the city.  So popular, in fact, that we hear they’re planning to move into a larger space across the street.  It’s pretty safe bet they’ll be just as successful in the new location.  Click here or on the image above to learn more about Le Petit Marché.
