The Dekalb Farmers Market on Ponce De Leon
This is one of the oldest and largest farmers market in Atlanta and it is truly still overwhelming when you go there for your groceries, fresh fish, wine and cheese selection.
The Dekalb Farmers Market began on June 2nd, 1977 as a small 7,500 sq. ft. produce stand in Decatur, Georgia. Since that humble beginning, we have grown into a 140,000 sq. ft. true world market serving up to 100,000 people per week. The original founder and owner of the market, Robert Blazer, is still in charge of operations along with his wife, Barbara, and son, Daniel.
As the very first private farmers market of its kind in Georgia, our reputation in the industry is as a pioneer in fresh food distribution to the consumer. We are very unique in receiving direct shipments of fresh food without costly warehousing and distribution delays. The result is the highest quality, lowest cost, and largest variety of fresh and organic food products currently available.
