Default What are Atlanta's "granola" enclaves?

Ok, when I lived in Atlanta, I remember a lot of yuppies and a lot of regular folks with ordinary jobs. I don't remember much of a "granola" factor. Maybe only Little Five Points and possibly a little around "Virginia Highland," though I would consider the latter more eclectic. So, where are the "granola" neighborhoods today?

Decatur, Cabbagetown, Grant Park, East Atlanta Village, Castleberry Hill, Old Fourth Ward, Candler Park--we've got more than our fair share of granola, trust me. But nowhere moreso than Decatur. Spend ten minutes on Decatur Metro to get a feeling for the place:

Decatur Metro

VaHi is barely on the radar in terms of granola anymore. Way more yuppie.

Holy smokes. That many? I thought Decatur was full of nicer, newer townhomes. That's what I saw a few years ago.

I went from North Druid Hills to Dunwoody, so I missed all that "earthy crunchy" action.

Decatur, Decatur, Decatur.

Maybe Pine Lake? Lake Claire?

That's where you're going to find the crunch crunch granolas.

However, I can tell you that in western Gwinnett and North Fulton, you will find the requisite Trader Joe's, enormous Whole Foods, Fresh Market, and even my local Kroger has a huge organic section probably about 1/3 the size of a full Publix.

Really you can find granolas in a lot of metro neighborhoods these days. Concentrations are definitely higher in Decatur and places like that, though.

I think a lot are out Roswell and Alpharetta way. Some were out in Buckhead until they shut the Brandyhouse down.

Wait, you are talking about Deadheads aren't you?

Definitely Lake Claire. Check out the Lake Claire Community Land Trust ( Lake Claire Community Land Trust ) and their cohousing community ( Cohousing Directory - Community View | The Cohousing Association of the United States ).

Also the Mountain Park community adjacent to Roswell. Very quirky.
