Dekalb Farmer’s Market

My mom and I go to the Dekalb Farmer’s Market every time I visit Atlanta. Honestly, I would move to ATL just for this market. Anything you could ever need or want to buy for your culinary adventures is here. When I visited my parents last June, I was able to stock up on Asian kitchen necessities so I could finally try to cook some Vietnamese and Thai foods. I think I got all my oils, curry pastes, spices, etc for under $20- and these are the ingredients that would normally cost $7.99/oil in NYC. Their spice section alone is worth the trip. My mom bought me bulk spices (everything from fennel seed to curry powder to whole nutmeg) and each ¼ pint container cost 58 cents. Yup $0.58!

On our trip on Thursday, we had a specific grocery list for our dinner at home. We wanted pork tenderloin, veggies for a side dish and we needed a starch. There were also a few miscellaneous items to find. Here are some pictures I took while inside the market (sorry for the bad quality- you aren’t technically allowed to take pictures inside!):
