The buffet here is fresh with lots of variety and healthy options. It is very cheap compared to other fresh buffets in the city. the biggest drawback is the eating area is very cold. You must wear a jacket, or sweatshirt and it is very bare bones. No frills at all! I hope when the new market is... read more

Whenever I am in town I plan my day to include lunch here. Freshest vegetables and a huge and varied assortment of dishes. With a large hot bar and salad station you can always find something you will love. This day I had Curried goat Stew, lentil chili, Samosas, cabbage and Lychee soda. It was delicious and a great people... More

We go there on a fairly regular on a regular basis. It is a great place for a healthy meal while knocking a weekly grocery list. I like that my family with their diverse taste can all leave happy. It is all good. My family's favorites are the vegetable somosas , ginger tofu, and all the fresh and steamed vegetables.... 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

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 jacket/sweatshirt even in July!. Second, CASH only! They have a hot bar... 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.
