Covering 140,000 square feet of well-air-conditioned space, YOUR DEKALB FARMERS MARKET isnt a farmers market in the traditional sense. That is, it doesnt carry goods that come solely from Georgia farmers though it does have a ridiculously massive selection of local and international produce, meats, seafood, cheeses, dry goods, wine and beer, and prepared foods, all at ridiculously low prices (even for the impressive selection of organic options). We recently found sushi-grade tuna for $10.99 per pound, 89-cent heads of escarole and hearty bundles of herbs for about a buck each. Thats about half the price of most competitors. Putting these values to the test, weve found that its possible to throw a four-course, 10-person dinner party for around $100. Why would you ever grocery-shop anywhere else?
