    It has an Eastern European bakery& Russian Ice Cream. A true international grocery store, with a cheap and delicious food court, featuring Mexican, Indian, and Korean food, plus in-house baked goods.

    Nice organic produce section as soon as you walk in. Then, if time permits, browse the rest of the market, sectioned by country of origin. We spent most of our visit in the Jamaican aisle.

    It is the only one place where I was able to find Kaymak which is Turkish cured cream for Turkish breakfast. Sometimes they have, sometimes they don't so, ask the ladies working in the cheese section.

    Best place we've found so far to buy cheap produce and try new things :) you could spend a whole day in there and not see everything! Parking can be crazy but worth it!

    great selection of fruits and vegetables but very expensive... the best deal here will be on fresh meat and fish and a great deal on fresh herbs and spices

    Best time to go is in the A.M. It gets crowded and parking is awful past 12 P.M. Great fresh fruit and veggies, live seafood and great deal on meats.

    The produce section is great for some items that are harder to find on the Southside. Good prices on some of the meat but be cautious with other prices- they are sometimes very high!

    Great place for picking up produce, meats, and seafood. Also love the imported goods area. Don't come here to pick up everyday items, that gets super expensive.

    Find in-house prepared staples like fried rice, kimbap, wings behind the Asian food aisles. These items get discounted around 6:30pm if you happen to be shopping in the evening.

    I love it here! From meats and veggies to herbs and tea, they have all my non-local needs and then some. The pricing is excellent as well.

    not exactly a farmer's market, but a regular supermarket with fresh food stock items, and multiple ethnic foods incl chinese, kor, jap, viet, thai, mex, american etc.. and many samples to try from too
  • Creative Loafing Atlanta
    Don’t rest until you find the counter peddling fresh-baked pirozhki. The turnovers look a lot like the typical dinner roll, but these golden beauties are stuffed with savory meats and vegetables. Read more

    The Russian food is to die for, along with the fish. The quintessential Atlanta experience!

    Great selection of flavourful & exotic fruits, e.g. passion fruit & dragon fruit; equally unmatchable Mexican & Korean pastries (American pastries are waaay overrated & sickening in comparison).

    I cant say that I like it better than the Dekalb Farmer's Market. They are very different from one another. But Buford has an awesome Asian foods section.

    Alway check to see what price your wine rings up. A bottle rang up as $14.99 when the sale price was $10.99. Third time this has happened.

    They finally opened up a cafeteria! It's right by the exit. They don't let carts in though. After checkout, you can "park" your cart before you enter the cafeteria. Even better, eat before shopping!

    They have this French champagne on sale called Jacval for only $9.99 which was originally $15.99. Truly a steal!!! Stock up for the holiday season before it sells out.

    Be very careful where you park as break-ins are rampant. Make especially sure you don't park near the side of the building where it's darker and out of view.

    Think mega-store, not market. A must every time I make my Mecca to Atlanta. Food lover's paradise. The most accurate description I've heard is that if Buford FM doesn't have it, it doesn't exist.

    Great place for at-home sushi chefs to get everything they need. Try buying the mixed sashimi plate instead of whole fish or filets to save time.

    I never really noticed that my nose was sensitive to smells, it really isn't. But the stench of all the seafood is really overpowering and it made me nauseous. Be cautious when going to that section.

    Wasn't as expensive as I thought. however, tried to buy some deli meat, after asking them to slice it thinly I was told they didn't have time for that & they will slice it thick. Bad taste in my mouth
