The second location of Grant Park-based Bennett’s Market and Deli, owned by Victoria Bennett and Claire Pearson, opened over the weekend at SPX Alley along the Eastside Beltline in the Old Fourth Ward (O4W).

SPX Alley is part of the Studioplex complex on Auburn Avenue.

Like the original Bennett’s, located at the corner of Boulevard and Rosalie avenues in Grant Park, the deli counter at the O4W market serves soups, salads, and sandwiches, including an all-day bacon, egg and cheese, New York-style pastrami, a reuben, and a tuna melt.

The market sells locally-made snacks and provisions as well as grocery staples like bread and milk. Bennett tells Eater Atlanta they hope to begin selling beer and wine in the market once the liquor license is approved in the next two weeks.

“We are so excited to be open on the Beltline in O4W. My business partner, Claire Pearson, and I have worked really hard to open this second location,” Bennett says. “We are offering pantry staples like local fresh bread, all-natural deli meats, organic milk and eggs as well as prepared meals to-go, sandwiches made-to-order, craft beer and unique wines.”
