Crazy place for good food cheap

Cafeteria is located inside the giant Dekalb Farmers Market. This is a crazy, hectic, atmosphere of shoppers and workers that shouldn't be missed. Food is good, fresh, healthy, affordable, and tasty. There are two key things you MUST know before you go...first it is COLD inside. Bring a... read more

They have a huge parking lot. It was crowded on the weekday when we went. I wanted to take some photos inside, but you are prohibited from doing so. There is a large variety of spices and international jars of all sorts of items. We had gotten a few different bottles of sauces and some containers of fresh spices. They... More

The atmosphere is very informal... cafeteria style with background noise of a busy farmers market... so not the place for a romantic dinner. But, if you want a wide choice of good, healthy food for a low price and aren't picky about decor, this is the place. There's a great salad bar and then also a hot bar with mutliple... More

Cheapest meal around at $5 a lb .. and I found out I like tofu. You will need a coat since it is located in the chilled farmers market. Bring cash

Visited last Saturday. This place is a must see! An amazing place, with food from all over the world for every kind of diet. We bought some flounder for dinner, they cleaned it like we wanted. At home I filleted them. When my wife layed them out and salted them, she found the meat was filled with little brown worms.... More

Every time I visit the Farmer's market I make a point of timing it to eat lunch there. The seasonal vegetables and meats are delicious. There are different entrees every time I visit. I could easily go vegetarian if I had the offerings they have there.

Whenever I travel to Atlanta I work my trip around a lunch trip to the Cafeteria here. Fresh and seasonal foods are on offer. I love the international varieties they have here. They also have a large salad bar. There is something for everyone from kids to adults. My daughter loves their vegetable samosas!

This is not fine dining, but the food is very, very fresh. It's a great way to sample some things that you may have never eaten before. The Market is truly a place to visit if you have never been there before. Out-of-towners are amazed at the selection and freshness. You'll be back!

Don't expect "my pleasure" but it's really pure wholesome great food. Priced higher but made with no shortcuts. Feel like you are visiting in another country but the authenticity of the food is worth it.

After shopping thru the mkt, I was surprised at how small the cafeteria was. Not much selection considering all the abundance available for them to cook from. The food on the hot bar didn't seem that it was as hot as it should be but the salad section was cold - possibly due to the fact that it is like... More
