“Always make sure to stop when I'm in the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Their "own brand" products ... Jams, jellys, caramel sauce, etc are outstanding. Large selection of map,e syrup and other New England specialty items. Their cider donuts are well worth the calories, buy double what you think you need! Other breakfast pastries are delish. Never bee disappointed in nearly 45 years! First came as a college student when it was barely more than a large fruit stand... Now it's much more upscale with the same high quality fruits and vegetables. Much is local.

“Excellent market, ok deli”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

The market part of this operation is amazing -- beautiful produce, house-brand sodas, specialty jams and jellies -- but the deli is pretty routine, standard offerings, take-a-number service. I did like the donuts.

“One of my favorite markets.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Atkins is one of the best markets around. Their produce, bakery, deli and meat counter are excellent. While I agree with some reviews that some of their prices are high, many are very reasonable; you just have to know your prices. Be sure to try their homemade cider donuts--some of the best you will ever get. BTW, Atkins is under "restaurants" on TripAdvisor. They sell bakery items, sandwiches ready-made and made-to-order, and I think hamburgs/hot dogs outside, but it really is more a market than a restaurant.

“More than a market”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

We stopped the first time and discovered a great place for lunch, wonderful buys on fresh produce and eggs, and friendly staff, too. I live at a distance but always manage to go here for an afternoon treat.

Excellent store with great service! The cider, apples and cider donuts are amazing and worth a long drive for. I live nearby and frequent for meats, produce, deli, prepared items.
