Yesterday I had to take my niece to the airport and it provided me with the perfect opportunity to visit the Buford Hwy Farmer’s Market. I heard about it a few weeks ago and have been trying my best to get there but something always seemed to come up. Well, I finally made it and it was everything I had heard and more!!
As you walk in you see a big world globe…because well, they have foods from all over the world!
It is amazing at the HUGE variety of foods that they have. They also have flowers, wall fountains outdoor, nesting dolls, small appliances, kitchen tools, etc. Basically, you name it!
It’s Sugar Plums…that will be dancing in my head!
I saw all kinds of produce that I had no idea even existed. Indian Bitter Melon which I bought for my Mom because it is supposed to help with cholesterol. I also bought dragon fruit and Korean melon (which I will tell you about in another post).
This is just a small portion of the produce section. The produce section alone is larger than most grocery stores.
They also have a large meat section. With EVERY kind of meat you can possibly imagine and some you never want to see again. I mean really, WHO would buy a pork uterus??? And what would you do with it? Ohhh, never mind, I don’t think I really want to know the answer to that.
They had everything from traditional cuts to the exotic. Trust me when I say they had every part of an animal you could ever want to purchase.
And the seafood department was HUGE! So many different kinds of fish, shrimp, mussels, crab, etc.
NOOOOO, I didn’t come home with that.
I did however buy some weird octopus flavored chips from the Asian section.I just couldn’t resist getting them and making Tate try them. He is like Mikey, he will eat anything. And he did try them…and liked them. I couldn’t try them…they smelled horrid and once I got that first whiff I was done.
Teas, as far as the eye can see.
Each aisle is marked with the region that the food comes from. It makes it easy to navigate your way around the globe. Chinese, Japanese, Korean, European, Jamaican, Hispanic, African and American foods are all represented. We spent hours browsing around and being amazed at all the things available that we had never seen before. I can’t wait to go back and I suggest that if you are ever in the Atlanta area you make it a point to visit the Buford Highway Farmer’s Market. They have no idea who I am and this post is in no way sponsered by them, I just had to share a small piece of my experience with you because I felt I had truly taken a trip around the world.
