In my first post about my trip to Atlanta for the BlogHer Food 2011 conference May 20 and May 21, I talked about how I attended as a member of the blogging community on behalf of our sister brands, RecipeLion.com, FaveDiets.com, MrFood.com, AllFreeSlowCookerRecipes.com, AllFreeChickenCasseroleRecipes.com and AllFreeCopycatRecipes.com.
In my Part II blog post edition of “Eating My Way Through Atlanta,” I wanted to share with you our trip to Sweet Auburn Market in Atlanta. BlogHer bussed us to the market in between sessions to check out local fare in one of the neatest indoor markets I’ve ever seen, complete with animal parts galore, fresh produce and roots, sauces, seafood and even restaurant stands!
There’s so much to show you, so I’m going to show my pictures “Food Gawker” style, with a little commentary mixed in:
The food truck outside the market had barbecued pork:
Entering the market…which is the almost the size of a Costco!
I also gawked at the cupcakes.
Don’t forget sausages!
I ate at Atlanta’s famous Grind House hamburger stand.
The burger was as greasy and delicious as it looks. It came with crunchy crinkle fries.
I ended my market journey with some refreshing peach lemonade.
It’s farmers market season! Do you have neat local markets where you live? Tell us about them by posting a comment on this article or go to our Facebook page and post an image or description of your outstanding local markets. Tell us why they’re so great! Can you find rare items there?
