Your Dekalb Farmer's Market

I was in Atlanta recently, and we decided to stop at Your Dekalb Farmer's Market. It was a fun spot to visit. If you are looking for an extensive selection of very fresh fruit, produce, meat, poultry, and seafood items, this is the place for you. Aisle upon aisle, table upon table is piled high with all sorts of fresh vegetables and fruits. It's a huge place, and all refrigerated, and everything is very, very fresh. Lots of people were milling about, filling their carts with all manner of food, mostly fresh food. 

There is a smal section of cans and jars and prepackages foods, but Your Dekalb Farmer's Market specializes in fresh food--and they do it well. 

One of the features I really like here is that you can pick out your fresh seafood and have them dress it for you. Head on, guts out, head off, fileted, steaks, you name it, they'll do it for yoy--while you wait. It's impressive to watch them as they skillfully dress your fresh fish.

Ice packed bin upon ice packed bin is filled with most every fresh fish you can imagine, all well labeled, all awaiting your purchase. And not just fish. Various varieties of shrimp, octopus, calamari/squid--all are here. There are even some tanks full of live catfish, dungeness crabs, lobsters, and tilapia. Can't get much more fresh than that. And of course, they'll dress it for you right on the spot, however you want it.

For their seafood selection, this place rocks. It's a great place and I wish we had one like this--or better yet, like Buford Highway Farmer's Market--in the Orlando area.

  1. The Atlanta area really does have awesome food stores. I do agree that Orlando needs more places like this!
