Dekalb Farmer’s Market

by kathryn on March 8, 2011

If you’ve lived in Atlanta you’ve probably heard of the small food treasure just outside of the big city limits in Decatur, yes, that’s right – I’m talking about the DeKalb Farmer’s Market.  Before even starting to talk about all the food, let me first say, bring a sweater!  The DeKalb Farmer’s Market is a huge refrigeratedwarehouse filled with anything and everything you could want to cook a feast.  This market receives direct national and international shipments to provide the freshest and cheapest of food.  And by food I mean everything from produce to seafood, meats, baked goods, wine, cheese, and even caned and dried foods.

It’s open seven days a week from 9am to 9pm.  Going on a weekday is best, but if you have to go on the weekend, go at 9 to avoid the rush, because boy does this place get crowded!

The best part though?  I’ve never hit a long line trying to check out, even when the place is swamped.  And while you’re there, pick up the Amish butter, it’s to die for!

Flux 2010

by kathryn on October 1, 2010

Flux Projects supports artists in creating innovative temporary public art throughout Atlanta.  I’ve heard all about the Flux Art Party taking place tonight – and it sounds like it’s going to be an event not to miss in Atlanta.
Flux is a one-night public art celebration in the streets and empty spaces of the Castleberry Hill Art District. The evening includes art and arm wrestling, performance, outdoor films, escaped zebras, parades, projects, and other forms of experimentation.

How to make the most of the night:
-Plan your method of transportation.
-If traveling by car, know where to park and consider reserving your parking in advance.
-Arrive early for drinks or dinner in one of Castleberry Hill’s many restaurants.
-Throughout the night refuel with one of the street vendors, including a special No Mas! Taco Stand, the Good Food Truck, and the Yumbii food truck.
-Take a sneak peek at the map of projects.
-Plan your evening so as not to miss any of the performances.
-Bring a friend or two…or more!
-When you arrive, go to one of the information stations to pick up a map of the event and your FLUX Favors!

Friday, October 1. 8 pm – 2 am
Castleberry Hill Art District. Free.

Hope to see you there!
