Another important thing to find when you first move to town. List which ones you frequent, including specialty stores, warehouses, or markets besides the big chains. Info on where you can find the best prices would be helpful! Include address, phone number, and website of the places if you can.
- Kroger - Atlanta's other main grocery chain. Requires a Kroger "Plus Card" to get sale prices. Prices are usually decent. Closest to campus are on Howell Mill and then Ponce de Leon (near City Hall).
- Publix - One of the South's major grocery stores. Tends to have higher prices and not as many off-brand things, but still good for some things. Probably the closest grocery store to campus (at North Avenue and Piedmont). There is also one in Atlanta station, and a new one will be opening on Spring Street right next to TSRB.
- Sevananda Coop - Community owned, all organics, vegetarian food. Excellent herb and bulk selection.
- Sweet Auburn Market - downtown, on Auburn. Indoor market with hard-to-find meat and probably one of the best Italian sandwich and cured ham shops.
- Whole Foods Market - High quality produce and products, but generally more expensive. Lots of organic stuff.
- Your Dekalb Farmers Market - Good prices on hard-to-find items. Especially if you are dying for international food. And a vast selection of hard-to-find meat, fish and cheese too.
- Costco - 6350 Peachtree Dunwoody Rd N.E
- Trader Joes - opening sometime in 2006 in Midtown Atlanta & Sandy Springs
- Buford Highway Farmer's Market - Enormous. Good produce. Fantastic selection of world-wide products. Mediocre selection of American products. Locksmith, dishes, chopsticks, and other miscelany. 5600 Buford.
- International Farmer's Market - Deep selection, however not as big, nice, or diverse as Buford Hwy FM. Good selection of jams/jellies though (At least at the Peachtree Ind location). 5193 Peachtree Ind, 5380 Jonesboro, or 5495 Jimmy Carter.
- Mercado Del Pueblo - Large market with fresh produce, meat, and (live) fish. Large selection of American, Asian, and Latino products. Especially large selection of pop. Restaurant and bakery. Phonecards.
- Mini-Mart Latino - Small shop, but large selection of Argentinian products. 3669 Clairmont.
- Grand Mart - Just opened! Not as big as the Buford Hwy Farmer's market, but much more accessible for people on the west side of the city (vinings/smyrna). VERY cheap produce, and a great selection of asian products. Some hispanic & american products, too. Has an asian cafeteria inside, but I haven't tried it. 2350 Spring Rd SE, Smyrna
- El Valu Supermarket - Huge hispanic supermarket with a mexican bakery! It's housed inside of a former Cub Foods to give you an idea of its size. Located at 2500 S Cobb Dr SE, Smyrna.
