great deals - Edit

We like DFM because they have great deals on everything from produce to wine! Only thing that I seem to forget often is that they only take cash debit or check! No credit cards. I usually have my ID and CC on me and leave my purse at home so often I’ve gotten all the way out there and then realized that I forgot my debit card.

Vegan Paradise - Edit

This place is a vegan's paradise. Produce is so cheap here and you can buy things in bulk without making a dent in your wallet. I especially love the spices section. Most of the main floor is produce. They also sell specialty products like organic cane sugars, etc. If you can't find something, the staff are very helpful and will take you to the storage area in the back, pull a sack of whatever it is that you want, and bag it/weigh it/price it right there in front of you. I love the Dekalb Farmers Market!

shop, eat - Edit

Tremendous variety of produce, with organic version available for many items. Huge selection of spices at reasonable prices. Non-aluminum baking powder and other items that are sometimes hard to find. Modest selection of sea veggies. Small but good nook with cooking implements. Gelatin-free gummies for the kids (but read the labels; they have the kind with gelatin, too). Coffee and pastry counters for those who might want to sip and shop.

Self-service cafeteria opens 11a.m. Weigh plate at cashier station. Always vegan options. Fresh ingredients. I usually get some of the tofu dish as well as a variety of cooked and raw veggies and cold salads. Beverages include water, tea, and juices.

Take a jacket, even in the summer. The keep it cold in there, probably to keep the food fresher.

Pros: an adventure to go here, staffed info center to help you find things, love the cafeteria

Cons: gets crowded on weekends

I'm a regular - Edit

I come here more than any other place around. I buy all my groceries here. All my groceries. Their produce is always fresh and delicious even though they're imported from all around the world. They Always have a great organic selection. I'm a frugivor, and they always have a great selection of tropical and hard to find fruit, it's always exciting to see what fruit will make an appearance from week to week. They don't stock anything with high fructose corn syrup. Great beer and wine selection. Their salad and hot bar is really good, although their dining room is a little depressing. Bring a jacket.

Pros: organic, hot bar, selection

Great grocery store and lunch stop - Edit

I go here all the time to buy groceries-- the produce is very fresh and inexpensive. There is also a wide selection of spices and grains for low prices.

The food bar is very cheap and has a cold and hot side with many vegan choices. the sesame tofu is the best. their juices are also good-- i like the kale the best.

Two warnings-- the food bar takes cash only and is cold, so bring a sweater.

Pros: cheap eats and groceries, fresh groceries, many choices

Cons: cold, does have extensive meat and fish area, crowded checkout

Crowded but definitely worth the hassle! - Edit

This is my new favorite place to go shopping! There is a huge assortment of fruits and vegetables, and they're all super cheap compared to regular grocery stores. There's a large bread section with delicious vegan choices. They don't label which ones are vegan, but they do list the ingredients, so it's easy to check.

If you're looking for spices or nutritional yeast or flours that you can't normally find in a regular grocery store, you can probably find them here - and at an affordable price. They have nuts and beans and coffees and a bunch of interesting ingredients I wouldn't have known where to find before.

There is, sadly, a large meat/fish department, but I usually just avoid that side of the store. The only time I go in that direction is to find soy products, which isn't that often. If you are looking for soy products, there's a decent selection over in the refrigerator section. It's not the best selection I've ever seen, but there's more of a selection than I've seen at a regular grocery store.

The only real downside to this place is that it's really crowded. It's helpful to have someone with you just as a cart pusher, as it's easier to run in and out of aisles and grab stuff than it is to take your cart with you.

Other than the crowd, though, it's a great place. Anyone who's ever said that a veggie diet is expensive has clearly never been here.

Pros: great variety, cheap

Cons: crowded

Great Produce, and Cafeteria! - Edit

Great fresh fruits, veggies, dry goods and spices...but the GEM in my opinion is the cafeteria! Lots of veggie choices and grains. There is always General Tso's Tofu! Huge variety of goodies and very reasonable prices. We always time visits with lunch or dinner.

Pros: Very Fresh, Value, Variety

Cons: Loud
