    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    Omg! These comments do not do justice. This is an International Mega Store. From Asian , Eastern European , South American , European , American foods and etc. Fresh fruit & Veggies! Amazing!

    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

    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

    My husband and I love the place. Everything is extremely fresh and vibrant. We are able to pick up lots of fruits, vegetables, herbs and meat at very good prices.

    Great spice table and good prices too. Fresh organic and non-organic vegetables and fruits. International food available as well. Definitely a good place to shop

    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.

    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.

    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).

    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.

    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

    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.

    Produce section is very clean and they carry an unbelievable variety of produce. Wish it was busier to keep that farmer's market feel atmosphere.

    FYI - Need to open that bottle of Jarritos? Go to the food counter near the exit. It's at the cash register. Find your int'l vice here. They've got everything from arepas to char siu bao.

    Excellent selection of produce! Make your way to the center of the market and try freshly made tortilla samples!

    Expect crowds. No1 is gonna help U find what U want/need. Wear comfotable shoes. Best time to shop is EARLY in the morning.

    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!

    Very wide and extensive selection of European, Middle Eastern and Asian products. Also has a wide variety of seafoods.

    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.

    A truly magical place. So much produce, so many international foods, and most of it well priced.

    Get a dozen Deli Manjoo on your way out--they are right next to the exit up front, cheap, and cream-filled. Delightful! Read more

    For fresh Seafood, come early to avoid the crowds, long lines, & waiting. Seafood Dept opens at 8:00 AM.

    Be sure to check out the seafood selection. They sell live crawfish by the pound when in season.

    What happened to its dark chocolate selection? There is literally nothing in the Western Europe section and also South America section, and Africa ones.

    Th first time you are here it can be overwhelming. Take your time to discover the entire store.

    The Asian deli great. I wanted squid salad and they were out. So they called someone to make me some. Great service.

    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.

    It's my favorite store, in my opinion the prices and choices are far better than dekalb farmers market.

    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.

    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.
