This is a great market, also with a good bakery and sandwiches.

Atkins is a family-owned shop that keeps growing because it's a great place to shop with a growing and loyal following. They have THE BEST ground angus beef, which I buy every time I make hamburgers. I've tried it elsewhere (Whole Foods, Millstone) and this is better. Their vegies and fruit are... read more

I'd call this a country supermarket, but why all the excitement over it, I'm not sure. If you're visiting Hampshire College, it's a decent place to stop for a snack or groceries, although as other reviewers note, the prices are too high and the food is average U.S. stuff. As for views, I prefer the gardens at the Yiddish Book... More

Farm fresh produce, expansive bakery, meats,fish,deli,specialty items,candy, flowers, gifts, ice cream, beer and wine....it is hard to find something you can't get at Atkins. The quality is always good and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. There are fun events held throughout the year. A great place to stop and spend some time.

What started out as an orchard selling mostly apples has turned into a full service country market. This is one market that is worth going out of your way for -for the apples that are still from their own orchard, or the cider donuts and other bakery items. They even have an extensive gluten-free section. The only thing you could... More

Atkins sells a large variety of fruits and vegetables. There is also a deli and organic meat section plus a nice wine area. There is also a small area to sit and enjoy specially coffees and pastries. Don't forget to sample the apple sugar donuts.

One of my favorite places to stop when I visit Amherst. Great deli sandwiches and other items, but the real treat are the donuts and their root beer.

Everything in this store in high quality. Soups taste home made. Salad bar was fresh and delicious. Cider donuts are unbeatable. Bakery outstanding. They even sell discounted Christmas items, candy and trinkets. Fantastic experience all around. Grocery store extraordinaire!

A charming and well-stocked cross between a country store and farmers market. Atkins is one of our favorite places to shop for provisions when we are in Amherst. Their fresh apple cider is the best!

Can only speak about the bakery and apple cider donuts, which are good. Have been going here for years, usually good deals on "in season" fruits and vegetables.

Upscale grocery, on the order of a Whole Foods with a deli counter with high quality sandwiches. The cole slaw was exceptional - not too wet, and very tasty.
