6 Best Atlanta Groceries

  • 3000 E Ponce de Leon Ave, Decatur
    Melissa Gallagher - You'll save at least 20% off your grocery bill here! The produce section is rife with things like standard veggies and then all those lesser known hard to find items like galangal, thai basil, chanterelles (when they're in season) and a hundred different varietals of apples. They aren't great about stocking local produce, but you won't have trouble finding organic versions when it's in season. If you try to eat meat that's raised humanely and free of antibiotics, this is great place to go. Their pork and chicken are top notch, although I think their grass fed beef selections are often a bit paltry (plenty of ground beef though). Plus, you'll find lamb, goat, turkey, and plenty of offal. Homemade bread? Check. Homemade pasta? Check. Great deli? Yep. Plus they bulk pack items like teas, spices, nuts, and dried legumes & grains (including SO many options for gluten free flours). They even have an impressive inexpensive assortment of flowers. The only thing you can't get here are your paper goods and household staples like soap, TP, garbage bags, etc. For everything else, it will spoil you.
    Jordan Cook - Plethora of choices, fresh and super affordable! Grocers are really helpful plus you can grab a coffee, meal, or snack while shopping.

    Melissa Gallagher - Candler Park Market is a neighborhood market that will make you feel like you live in a tiny town where everyone knows your name. I used to live nearby, and there's a specialness to being a regular here. They don't all know me anymore, but I go back often. The market is small but surprisingly well stocked. Since it's located just off Dekalb Ave, it's such a quick visit if I need to grab something on the way home for dinner. They have grass-fed beef, fresh vegetables, and just enough of the basics that you can make a meal on the fly. They have a great sandwich lunch counter too. But perhaps the crown jewel of the store is their beer/wine selection. I don't drink as much beer these days, but it used to be the place where you could find 4-packs of KBS (if you know, you KNOW) long after every other package store went on a waiting list. And they used to have things like vintage bottles of Cantillon and obscure collaboration beers. I don't think you'll find the super rare gems any more, but you will always have some great selections of craft beer well beyond grocery store shelves. And for wine, it's a spot to get grower's champagne or quality rose. It's well worth a visit if you live in the area or pass by frequently and haven't stopped in yet.
    Lynne Tanzer - For being so small, I've never left this place empty-handed. They always have what I need. Honestly, I wish there was a CPM in every neighborhood because it's so much easier to run into than a big chain store.
    I especially love the prepared sandwiches and meals at the back in the cooler, and you can always ask one of the lovely staff for a wine pairing or three ;)

    Melissa Gallagher - This place is chock full of all types of asian grocery needs. From more obscure ingredients like fermented red tofu to mustard pickle or more common things like Shaoxing wine or Chinkiang vinegar, they have it all. I highly recommend their big bags of frozen Gyoza, which make a super quick and satisfying snack to have on hand. If you get there and you're confused, don't be afraid to ask! Everyone is super helpful and can translate that item you have from the online recipe. A word of caution, be sure to check the expiration dates before you buy! It's a small store, and it's packed. Leave some time to explore!

    Melissa Gallagher - If you like Indian cuisine but have struggled to find ingredients, Patel Brothers is a great source. You'll find alllllll the spices and herbs, along with papad, frozen naan, jarred pickles, and really everything you need. I love that I don't have to drive all the way to Buford Hwy, and I can get a yummy Indian lunch at one of the spots next door while I'm there!

    Dakota Stern - Krog Street Market is more than just a collection of restaurants and bars; it's a sign of Atlanta's evolving culture.
