Special on Head

Being the official foodie at home, I mix in grocery shopping with Kroger and a farmerís market. Kroger takes care of things like paper goods, ice cream, and packaged goodies one canít live without. Yet I do the bulk of my food shopping at the farmerís market. In the past I relied on DeKalbís Farmerís Market that is by far the most superior market in Atlanta. Recently Iíve tried two other places with varying success.

On Buford Hwy, the Atlanta Farmerís Market is Ω Asian food and Ω Latino food. You can find that random spice necessary in your special Chinese cooking creation here. However, their produce is not always fresh; Iíve purchased several items that spoiled quickly. So today I ventured to the International Farmerís Market on Peachtree-Industrial Rd.

The International Farmerís Market is truly international. As you walk in past the lady selling bras and sneakers (wtf?) an Indian grocery section overcomes your senses. I was amazed browsing through the interesting array of foodstuff. Although this market is slightly disorganized, I found their prices reasonable and of course much cheaper than Kroger. Their produce appeared fresh and I purchased lots of fruits and vegetables to eat at home. I had to watch the cashier ring up my items closely because two things rang up incorrectly. However, I was mostly distracted by the large sign near the check-out reading, ìHalf-priced sale on Goats with Head On.î HHmmmmÖ..

    Ok. The goat head thing is a bit much… but I love going to farmer’s markets for the sight seeing and people watching… it is very fascinating. I am a meat-etarian… so I don’t buy for me… but my wife keeps insisting that the things that grow from the ground are healthy.
