DeKalb Farmer’s market year round. I like Piedmont Park’s fares on Saturdays, but it’s hard to get there regularly and only open in the summer

The Quonset Hut place in Dillard/Mountain City (hard to tell when you leave one and get to the other) – we stop there on the way home from Highlands every time. Luscious Lady Peas, sweet Corn, actually dark green Pole Beans (the “green beans” around Atlanta are more of a grayish-green), tender Okra that fries up perfectly, the biggest, most beautiful heads of Cabbage you’d ever see (pretty enough to photograph and frame), tomatoes that don’t taste at all like the pretenders the grocery stores carry. We get bags of stuff, bring back for friends as well.

Dekalb Farmers Market. Although if you head up to Elijay, stop at R & J Orchard (or maybe it’s R&G). It’s on the right hand side of the road just before you get into town. AWESOME!!

R&R Produce, smack in the middle of 5 Points (next to the Andrew Young GSU building). The employees are friendly, try to get to know each customer personally, and have great prices. Great customer service and great produce.

P&W Produce on Beaver Ruin in Lilburn. Their tomatoes are always good and they have a great selection of fresh produce as well. They have been in business for years so they must be doing something right!

Truly Living Well Natural Urban Farms on Washington Road in East Point. Everything is organic and grown with soul. The best locally grown vegetables year-round; the best selection of organic herbs anywhere in Atlanta. A community gathering place on CSA pickup and market day (Wednesday), and great place to visit with your kids any time.

The Osage Farms in Raburn Gap, GA., located at 5030 Highway 441 North.
We stopped by there on our way back home from Highlands, NC. We “loaded up” on corn, peas, green beans, tomatoes, potatoes, watermelon, cantalope, onions, cukes, squash, peaches, blackberries, and much more. All items are locally grown and harvested beginning July 1st.
It’s the best anywhere!

I agree with Cliff. Osage Farms has the freshest and best produce anywhere. Wait until you’re there while a farmer is unloading freshly picked Silver Queen corn, still warm from the sun.

Easy! Burger’s Farmer Market in Marietta — it’s where all the little old ladies in Marietta shop for their Southern-style veggies. Alton Brown also said it’s one of his favorite places for produce.

Peachtree Road Farmers Market! Great farmers and produce–wonderful variety and freshness. Lots better than Piedmont Park’s!!

Sherry’s Produce on Lawrenceville Highway in Tucker. The tomatoes are always wonderful and they have a nice selection of fresh shelled peas and beans (my personal summertime favorites). The unblemished okra and squash are to die for and don’t get me started on the small cucumbers! Plus the prices are the very reasonable compared to some other vegetable markets. Think I’ll stop on my way home from work and then make some of my delicious iron skillet cornbread to go with it. Yum yum!

Adam’s Family Farm in Fayette County on Highway 54. Fresh from the field! Tomatoes, berries, butter beans, and delightful pickled treats.

Well, I love Dekalb Farmers Market…it has a lot of cool stuff, a great variety of international foods. But, for locally grown fresh produce it’s not the best.

I like roadside stands and The Mercantile (on Dekalb Ave) for fresh and locally grown. Though The Mercantile doesn’t have a huge supply or variety and it’s expensive…however they do have the best baguettes in town (better than Alons).

I’m reticent to let the rest of the city know about the great treasure we in Fayette County have in Adams Farm. We don’t need any more traffic and you have to shop early in the day already as they may run out of a choice item until the next day’s picking comes in. Monday-Saturday sale of fresh produce, grown right there on-site. Family-owned and staffed, I can’t imagine a better place to get high-quality, fresh, delicious vegetables. Their tomatoes are just starting to come in —ripe and consistent, and their butter beans and pink-eyed peas are incredible.

Sherry’s Produce in Tucker. The nicest people, great prices and the produce is wonderful. You can run across the street to Wilke’s Meat Market and completely skip a trip to the grocery store.

Love the Country Store on Tara Blvd. at Tara Rd. Can’t beat the garden grown tomatoes, peaches, cantaloupes and they always have sweet watermelons at a good price. I go there several times a week…it;s like having my own garden without all the work.

I LOVE LUCY’S MARKET! This family run business, located on Roswell Road 1 block south of Wieuca Rd.) offers the best in fresh produce, friendly service from Kim, Hope, Richard & son, and wonderful prices. Their tomatoes are the best in town and their fine selection of green beans, cantalopes, watermelons, okra, squash, cucumbers, corn (bought daily at the farmer’s market), and fresh cut herbs would have made their grandmother, Lucy, proud.
They have my bet for best produce in town, but they also sell and deliever firewood and pinestraw, and their boiled peanuts are to die for.

Osage in Rabun Gap. Worth the short drive from Atlanta. The produce is still damp from the morning dew where it was picked from the fields and the BBQ, avaialble only on weekends, is some of the best around. Great local breads, jams and jellies too.

Best place to get produce is at State Farmers Market and to be especific La Merced Produce. The have the best Mexican produce in the whole state. The best Mexican avocados, the best roma tomatoes and the hottest peppers! Definitely a trip worth your time and money.

For Fayette County, it’s Adam’s Farm. Also, Market on Main in Senoia –they do co-op style ordering, but you get to pick exactly what you want.
