January 22nd, 2014 -

The Battle of the Sexes seems to be a never-ending quest to determine which gender reigns supreme. However, wouldn’t it be better just to squash the argument all together and agree that men and women can both do things within and outside their sex well? Here’s hoping that the latest news to come out of Krog Street Market can widen the gap, on a local front at least. Of all the new tenants recently taking up shop at Krog, this batch is heavily dominated by women, which is a welcomed change from the more male-heavy businesses that find themselves regularly taking up retail space along Atlanta streets. If this trend continues, 2014 may very well be considered the “Year of the Woman,” in Atlanta at least. Read on to find out who these amazing women are and what they are bringing to Krog Street Market!
