Have you tried Candler Park Market?

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 ;)
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.
