cheap public farmers markets in Atlanta

YW911 | Jun 7, 2012 03:38 PM

Hi everyone,
I recently moved to Atlanta from Rochester, NY where we had the most wonderful year round public market. In addition to having a great variety of items, my favorite aspect of this market was that everything was super affordable, and dare I say, cheap! I remember getting 12 ears of corn for 2 dollars, and entire heads of collard greens for $3.
Now that I'm in Atlanta, I'm looking for something similar. I've been to the Buford Highway Farmers market and also Your Dekalb market, as well as the peachtree farmers market. The first two had great variety, but obviously, the prices weren't super great, given that they are brick and mortar stores. The peachtree farmers market on saturdays was very nice, but obviously catered to the organic, Buckhead crowd.
Are there any markets in Atlanta similar to the one I had in Rochester? Basically, I'm looking for fresh produce that's local and cheap.
Thanks so much!
