My son-in-law is from India and was amazed to find they had four different kinds of mangoes.

There are many other cultural foods and items you will find in this place. I especially liked the bulk packs of nuts and dried fruits. However, most fresh fruit is also excellent and well priced.

They also sell food prepared for eating there.

There is no shopping experience quite like the DeKalb Farmer's Market just east of Atlanta. It is like trying to maneuver a cart through the traffic of Mumbai, Mexico City, Istanbul, Paris, Tokyo, Beijing and, of course, Atlanta all at the same time. On busy days it can be a bit crazy but nowhere in the city can you find the variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, coffees, cheeses, fish, meats, wines, beers, spices, breads, flowers, pastas, olive oils, etc. etc. I have been shopping DFM for years and always think of my visits as an experience.
It is the grocery shopping cross-roads of the city. People from every part of the world are there to find familiar foods.
If you comparison shop you will find many items priced similar to a standard grocery store such as meats and dairy. Some items will be higher than the corner Kroger. And yet other items, especially spices, are well below chain prices. Sure you can go the chain grocer closer to your house but you will not have the fun experience of the DFM.
For a first time visitor it is best to take a few minutes just to walk around and get to know the place before filling your cart. It is easy to overfill your cart just because you are a bit overwhelmed. But relax. Enjoy it.

This unique market is located east of downtown Atlanta. It has everything from bulk spices, to meats, seafood, and produce. Just about every type of produce is available here. Fresh stock is put on the shelves every second. Get here early to avoid the crowds. Many of the customers are retail customers, but a lot of restaurants visit here to get raw materials for their businesses. One of the biggest fish marts I have ever seen.

I was blessed to go to this farmers market and could not believe all the nations covered. This market has it all and its fresh. They also have cooked food and baked goods. They had American food, South American food, Eastern Europe food, Asian food, and a great selection of fish and all kid of meats and exotic fruits and vegetables.

If you want to enjoy time in a non-tourist environment, get a glimpse of the diversity of the Atlanta population, see and taste produce from all over the world, find unusual culinary treats to take home and see an Atlanta landmark, visit Your DeKalb Farmers Market. I do most of my regular grocery shopping there and am always amazed by the variety and beauty of the the products available. My husband and I also eat fairly regularly in the market cafeteria. They have both a hot bar and a salad bar with a wide variety of selections to suit both a vegetarian and a non vegetarian diet. They also have a separate dessert, pastry and coffee bar. The atmosphere is not elegant, but provides a great opportunity for people-watching...people living life, not just on vacation. Though, the Market is a fascinating place, inside they ask that you not take photos.
