Tucker Farmers Market

I finally tried the Tucker Farmers Market. It's tucked away in an alley off Main Street on Thursday afternoons (4-8 PM). It has an impressive variety of artisnal food producers and chefs.

My big stop was to Pearson Farm for a box of peaches. Pearson grows both peaches and pecans. It supplies a very impressive list of top restaurants. I tried a bit of each while I was there. The peach was at the peak of ripeness---extremely flavorful, soft, and juicy. The pecan was very nutty but in a subtle way; its texture was equally impressive.

I was happy to find Java Genesis there, a small-batch roaster that used to attend the old Georgia Tech farmers market. Their coffee is superb, rich and flavorful wihtout being overly strong or acidic. I picked up some ground coffee (yes, I'm a philistine) and an iced coffee.

I also stopped by JB Farm Fresh Eggs. This is the omelet I made with them and a little bit of coconut milk. The eggs had very small cholesterol sacks (those little white things hanging onto the yolk), which is typical of naturally raised eggs. The omelet had great texture and a very rich taste.
