    This is one of the BEST places to buy spices, grains, fresh fruits, veggies & fish! We luv the salmon & sea bass. Best time to shop is weekday mornings, small crowds & fresh food!

    Veggie galore! Seafood? Oh yes! Love the granola in the bag. It is a must-have! Don't forget to get your piece of cake or pie on your way out. Whew! What else is there to say? Love it all!

    One of my fav ATL spots. YES, it is better than Buford HFM. The quality and prices are unmatched. Why go to Kroger/Publix?? Produce, meats, dairy, bakery..I just wonder thy the cops have machine guns?

    Pro Tip: To maximize your ability to get around on crowded days (esp. in the produce), park your cart and walk around and collect things, then walk back and out put them in your cart. Saves bother!

    Great fish market. Come at the right time, beat the rush, & get your pick (still wriggling!) During busy hours they get sloppy; it's better to skip the pick-your-# line & clean the fish yourself.

    Do not go on the weekends, especially on a Saturday- beyond crowded & noisy. Wonderful selection of foods from all over the world, and produce that inspires me to cook fresh, healthy food.

    Tons of fresh produce at GREAT prices. Endless shelves of packaged goods from all corners of the world. Great array of spices. Absolutely loved this place. But DO bring a jacket. It's COLD.

    Great selection of fresh produce. If you've ever travelled & had a food item you love, chances are you can get it here. Make a day of it & enjoy a lunch of several ethnic dishes. Weekdays are slowest.

    Lots and lots of varieties of veggies, meat, seafood, spices, and other cool organic stuff. They only take cash, check, and debit card!! Definitely check out their hot bars! Yum!

    Reasonable prices so of course it's a popular place, busy even during the middle of the day on a weekday! Spices are very reasonable and fresh, find them on the outside edge of the vegetables near the

    There simply isn't one tip for the DeKalb. However grilled lamb is fab so pick some up of their lamb stew meat then slide down the counter and pick up some of thier very own brats. Yummy!

    Everything is fresh and my favorite selections are the seasonings. There seems to be nearly 100, if not more, different spices. This is our favorite market without question!

    The best place to get cheap and fresh groceries. But don't go on the weekend. AND DON'T LEAVE YOUR CART UNATTENDED! That thing will be unloaded and stolen on 2 seconds flat.

    As the first private farmers market of its kind in Georgia, its reputation in the industry is as a pioneer in fresh food distribution to the consumer. Try the pastries! Part of our gourmand itinerary: Read more

    I love this market. You can find anything and everything here. spices, organics, the freshest everything. It's like an international bazaar and is fascinating to explore.

    Last, they have the longest fresh fish counter I've ever seen: longer than the Ramlas in Barcelona, longer than the Fulton St. market (stalls, not one counter), longer than the wharf in SF!
  • Emwella G.
    Fresh secure distribution of goodies from exotic spices to delicacy meats. A buffet of people. Love it!! Jus smile be polite and make your way through the maze

    I shop at the Buford HWY farmer's market. They take credit cards and allow photography! No cult-like presences, and it's 1/2 hour closer to my house by car, 1 hour closer by MARTA.

    This is a great place to take the kids... during the week! Saturdays are PACKED! Great prices & wide variety of everything are the highlights of the DFM experience.

    A magical place. The produce, meat, fish, and bakery selections are incredible, and for the most part, quite well priced. Can be a madhouse though, be prepared.

    Go for organic. A lot of times the regular versus organic isn't marked for the checker, so you often get charged the price for regular. Plus their meats and seafood is really fresh!

    Leave your kids at home. I keep a jacket in the trunk. It's about 50 degrees inside. The cafeteria is by weight and CASH ONLY. Check your grocery sacks, can't take them in. Amazing coffee section.

    Bring a jacket and use the restroom elsewhere! Aside from those two pertinent things, the produce, grass fed meats, and gluten free baked goods are awesome!

    I love this place. This is a true international farmers market without being too authentic. The one on Buford is scary authentic but great as well.

    Where else can you enjoy organic coffee and a chocolate croissant, smell some fresh spices, grind your own cashew butter, and go home with a few pounds of Australian goat and live soft-shell crabs?

    Pretty good prices on the herbs. The bread goes bad fast but is good. The tea selection is better at the coffee bar then at the isle and tells you the benefits and how to brew them.

    Avoid going on Sundays... it's a mad house. Other than that this place rocks and caters to gluten free and dairy free people. Win.

    Always chilly, bring a light long sleeve shirt or jacket. Sunday afternoons are the busiest, but the best people watching. Weekday early afternoons and mornings are the slowest.

    Don't go in weekends. It's a zoo and really hard to get everything you need. Otherwise, excellent place to get fresh, organic food. Love it!

    Produce from all over the world, shoppers from everywhere, too. Sometimes cultures clash, be prepared to be shoved aside over a cucumber.

    It's nice but you have to be careful because lamb chops with round bones are goat not lamb so you have to know what you are buying they put extra ice on shrimp
