New Farmers Market

I visited the new farmers' market on Buford Highway. It's located near the southern end, perhaps a mile south of Clairmont---my best local reference is the bowling alley.

Most of these markets skew toward one or a few ethnicities. This one definitely serves the Hispanic market, although it has the usual selection of items from everywhere. Here are some random observations:

* A pretty good deal on organic peaches.

* A wide variety of interesting produce that I've never cooked with before.

* What I assume must be lard labeled as "pork oil," a strangely accurate description.

* Fresh chiccarones.

* A large selection of woks next to a large selection of pans with largely Spanish labeling.

* Some really huge pots and an excellent selection of tortilla presses.

* And they handed out fresh popcorn at the exit!
