The Decatur Farmers Market has become our most visited farmer's market in Atlanta over the years.
Its one of the few markets that keep going year round. Slowly but surely the majority of the others close for the winter. But not Decatur, it keeps going even when it gets really cold and not so nice to be out.
Last week, they moved their Wednesday location from a parking lot next to the B of A, to 308 Clairemont Ave. Decatur, GA 30030, in the front lawn of The Decatur First Baptist Church on the corner of Clairemont and Commerce Drive, catty-corner to the old location.
A huge improvement, a lot of space, on grass and best of all plenty of parking, which was sometimes an issue at the previous location.
I had never tried kimchi before, but last week I decided not to pass up the free samples.
I've got to say, its pretty yummy and I knew it would be right up Cindy's alley.
So I got a jar of their seasonal variety, which uses radish as a base rather than the more traditional cabbage.
Supposedly one of the world’s healthiest foods, also the national food of Korean where they consume on average 40 pounds of Kimchi per year.
I also had quite a cheat on my diet and grabbed the Pork Belly Bun.
Delicious but definitely not dietetic.
There was a new vendor, podponics
passing out free samples of their hydroponically grown lettuces. I've actually purchased there product before.
They grow their produce in shipping containers with grow-lights and hydroponics.
I've read about it and seen pictures, I think a home-school field trip might be in the works.
Other items picked up on my last foray, were beets, cabbage, radishes, broccoli and eggs, as well as several other things that the local farmers and artisans brought out.
