On Saturday I was invited to go on a trip with my boyfriend and his family to Atlanta. I got to meet his wonderful grandparents who live there and we also made a visit to the Dekalb Farmers Market. And I must say, wow. That place was incredible, the moment you walk in you’re hit with a wave of sights and smells. We saw people from every walk of life and a lot of different cultures, speaking too many languages to count. The employees actually had a list of languages they could speak on their name tags.
After standing around and gawking for a few minutes we moved on to the food court for lunch and got into the buffet line. At first I was afraid I’d have to stick with the normal vegan fare of a salad, but I soon saw that there were many veggie-friendly food options. I ended up with a huge plate-full of very yummy food. I got sesame ginger tofu (which was by far the best tofu I’ve ever eaten), three bean chili with corn and mushrooms, and steamed zucchini with garlic and fennel seeds. It was all really good, so if you go through Atlanta be sure to eat at the Dekalb buffet.
By the way, my apologies for the crummy picture. They had a strict no photos policy so I just took one quick, semi-hidden snapshot of my food before digging in.
