The beauty of a place like Dekalb FM is the choice available compared to the local grocery stores like Publix and Kroger. When you do find some of these spices, the prices are outrageous. And forget about a WalMart having anything outside the basics.

The produce at DFM is unlike anything sold by even the local organic farmers collectives and farmer's market. As an international community, Atlanta caters to the diverse global tastes of its diaspora populations.

Durian, watercress, jerusalem artichokes, papayas, mangos, drumstick, fenugreek, fresh figs are but a small sample of the produce offerings. Canned and dried items, sweets freshly made or from around the world, breads, cookies and muffins, fresh juices, dozens of cheeses, and for the meat eaters, fresh seafood and more.

Definitely worth a couple of hours in the car with the kids.
