Farmers Markets in or near Atlanta

dekalb is excellent and an institution.

If the "Atlanta"market is on Buford hwy, then yes -- if it is not I am not familiar.

Tempeh and White Bean Sausage Patties

less breakfat sausage than evening burger, nevertheless, this is one of the best veggie burgers out there!

a large pinch of ground chipotle helps...

Atlanta possibilities

dont know much about tex mex. heard good things about the food at nuevo laredo -- but also heard the prices are a bit high for the quality...

some easy and obvious choices:

Veitnamese: da loi is widely considered one of the better pho houses in ATL -- and there are 2 - one [kinda] near the airport on jonesboro and one up buford hwy.

Near Emory? -- many choices from decent to top notch, a good place to start your search is Decatur Square [discussed often here and on]. on the other side of Emory a little gem called floataway cafe lurks down Zonolite road.

Chow By Atlanta MARTA - Help!

Disclaimer from a frequent marta user: limiting yourself to marta is well, limiting.

I assume you will not be riding busses [often an extremely unsatisfying experience]

A quick sampling [not exhaustive] – have fun – Atlanta is a great place to live and can be a crappy place to visit…weird but true….

EASTLINE [Indian creek]:
Decatur station: square and environs [10 min walk]: a range of good options including sushi avenue; brickstore, twains, java monkey; and many many others – many at least good.

Eastlake station: Wahoo, 15 –20 minute walk south to Oakhurst village with many options – more hip than good but worth a visit for how intown locals tend to live/work/play.

Candler park station: radial, flying biscuit [not so good anymore but famous]; gato bizco [way underrated IMHO]; candler park market – wine and sandwiches

Inman park station;
Son’s [classic meat and three soul/southern [b-fast and lunch only], shaun’s; 10 minute walk to “LITTLE 5” points many option most at least decent;

SOUTHLINE [airport]

Eastpoint Station: matilda bean [still there?] oz pizza; others

College park station: very much in flux sometime has some good stuff – not sure what is open there now


Midtown Station: Walk 5 blocks south to one of the more prominent midtown central business districts @ 10th and piedmont – very gay friendly. Coffee; sushi; Mediterranean [eh]; tapas. name it… piedmont park! Worth a walk around on a nice day.

Lenox – lenox mall food court – free samples; near the mall on peachtree – bluepointe; palm; others
