Lil Tamale Boi at The Green Market at Piedmont Park on Saturday - Midtown - ITP
Central American influenced tamales paired with perfectly pickled veggies and homemade habanero hot sauce are a great way to start your farmers market experience this Saturday in Midtown. @chef_aldo_garcia recently did a large cook for @flavorforward.atl and helped us feed 100 hungry bellies for a good cause. His tamales are next level and won’t disappoint. Also catch him popping up at EAV’s Farmers Market on Thursdays and Grant Park Farmers Market every other Sunday.
Hapa Kitchen (Hawaiian) at Steady Hand Beer Co. on Saturday - Blandtown - ITP
You have 3 different events and vibes to try @hapa.atl’s delicious Hawaiian style baos, musubi, and more at @97estoria on Tuesday, @truckandtapduluth on Wednesday, and @steadhandbeerco this Saturday.

New School Georgia BBQ meets Filipino baos when @secretpintbbq and @baolicious.atl combine forces for Secret Pint’s last pop up of 2023 serving his full menu. Catch his brisket, ribs, and legendary Spanish manchego sausage plates for the last time this year under the Secret Pint moniker. Beef brisket baos are not to be missed. Pre-orders are open until Thursday. Lunch service runs from noon to 4pm.
Baolicious (Filipino) and Chef Baens (Filipino) at Chow a la Carte on Sunday - Lindbergh - ITP

Truist Night Market with Lots of Chefs at The Home Depot Backyard on Thursday - Downtown - ITP
Savor, Sip, and Shop as @thdbackyard’s signature event returns this Thursday to Mercedes Benz Stadium.

You will also see @ganji.atl and Jimmie’s Jerk Chicken (@atljerkking) at @punkfoodieatponce this October.
