I really love this place. My first visit was back in July as both my girlfriend and I love to cook. She took me there just to see and I was thoroughly impressed. All the different foods, spices, veggies, fruits and especially the meat and seafood kept me in that store for hours. I stocked up on spices to take back to South Carolina and when I went back to see my girlfriend again, I just had to go back. Each time I've come to Atlanta since then I make it to the Farmers Market. And yes, I've been to the Buford Rd. market and it's okay, but not as massive. My girlfriend and I like Dekalb so much that I proposed to her in the parking lot. I know to you all that may not sound romantic, but because she likes places like that is what impressed me with her. By the way, she said 'yes.' I have no complaints about the place. The next time I go I'm going to take my boat cooler and stock up with fresh meats, fish and other seafood. You folk who are haters have no clue of real quality. I never found anyone who works there to be rude, but just the opposite . . . very nice folk and very helpful. The last time I was there I wanted live Dungeness Crab. I went to the tank to get my own and one of the employees nicely told me she would get someone to get them for me. She informed me that it maybe a little dangerous for me to try to get them and when I told her I could handle it she said, ""well if other customers who may not be able to handle it see you, then they may want to do it and perhaps get hurt."" She was very nice and went right away and got me some assistance. We brought 14 or 15 live large blue crab for less than $20. Oh yea, when I went to get the blue crab, I noticed a lot of the larger ones were dead. I simply asked one of the guys who just happened to be passing by if they had more, some fresher crabs. He said, ""I'll check!"" He went back and came back almost immediately and told me someone would bring some out shortly. They did and the wait was not long. I was well pleased. Every time I go, I get something new, something I've never tried before. Sometimes I like it, sometimes I don't, but the experiences are all good.
Don't hate, but APPRECIATE . . .
Cons: Sometimes a little too cold, but I understand
