Pam grew up in New Orleans and moved to Atlanta by way of Hilton Head, SC. She is another proud downtown Atlanta resident. Here she speaks with Alan Urech about one of the things that makes downtown so special: the historic Sweet Auburn Curb Market. Pamela was initially a financial consultant to the Municipal Market Company. After working through audits and getting the business back on track she was asked to stay on and manage the market herself…and she has been there ever since.
The Municipal Market (also known as Sweet Auburn Curb Market) is owned by the city of Atlanta and has been on Edgewood Avenue since 1924. Pamela discusses the market’s origins at the geographic center of the city, other markets around the country that inspire her work, and the challenges of advertising the market among other topics. This is a great interview for anyone with an interest in Atlanta history.
