HERITAGE SANDY SPRINGS FARMERS MARKET OPENS FOR THE SEASON
Gather up the family for your new favorite weekend activity: farmers market shopping. Even pets are welcome at Sandy Springs’ seasonal market, now open every Saturday until Oct. 28 from 8:30 a.m. to noon. Each week, more than 45 vendors sell local produce, prepared foods, pasture-raised meats and fresh dairy, all with live music in the background. The producer-only market, which was established in 2010, is sponsored by local businesses and organized by Heritage Sandy Springs, a nonprofit organization that coordinates community events. “It is a highlight of every week,” says Gail Fore, a Sandy Springs resident and frequent patron. “I see my favorite, nearby farmers who know my name and offer plenty of beautiful, fresh produce. Some of them humanely raise livestock and fish for consumption.” So, grab your morning jolt from Rev Coffee, a pastry from Breadwinner, your week’s fruit and veggie essentials from Bray Family Farms and a hostess gift from Indigo Bath and Body in one stop! This market makes it easy to buy local.

BEAUTY MOTHERSHIP LANDS SECOND LOCATION
You now have another destination for getting your makeup fix. Beauty megastore Sephora just opened its second Buckhead location last month. Setting up shop at the former Luna in The Exchange, a newly renovated shopping center at Peachtree Road and Grandview Avenue, the 4,800-square-foot space is larger than its other Atlanta outposts at Lenox Square and Ponce City Market. Both of those sites will remain open.

MOVING ON UP
Buckhead beauty specialist ReeDawn Rose Beauty is on the move … farther down the street. It is now open in a newer, grander space three times the previous size on West Wieuca Road, less than a mile from its former location in the heart of Chastain Park. The appointment-only operation specializes in eyelash extensions, hair extensions, skin care and nails. “It’s more space, more luxury, new services and new products!” says owner ReeDawn Rose, a licensed cosmetologist with more than 15 years of experience. Guests can enjoy lash lifts, Deva Curl certified treatments for curly hair and brow shaping as well as purchase products, such as brow pencils, anti-aging BB cream and ReeDawn Rose liquid velvet lipstick.
