Where to find 2017 farmers markets around metro Atlanta

Each spring and summer, farmers markets from Acworth to Chattahoochee Hills open for the season, joining year-round markets like the ones in Peachtree City and Marietta. The shoppers are all interested in fresh, healthy food and supporting farmers, bakers and cheese makers they’ve come to know personally.


This year, we’re noting which markets participate in Wholesome Wave Georgia. The program doubles federal nutrition assistance (SNAP, WIC and Senior FMNP) dollars to increase access to locally grown food while supporting sustainable farmers and contributing to the local food economy.

Don’t judge a wine by the grape on its label
Don’t judge a wine by the grape on its label

The word “varietal” is among the most misused in wine. Many people think of it as a synonym for “grape,” as in, “What varietals are in that wine?” Not to be pedantic, but that is wrong. Varietal is not a noun, it is an adjective. One may properly refer to a “varietal wine,” like a cabernet sauvignon or...

Exploring the sweet subtleties of vinegar

When Edward Lee was growing up in Brooklyn, his grandmother fermented traditional Korean foods at home to stock the pantry, making her own gochujang and doenjang, along with several kinds of kimchi and rice vinegars. Lee now makes his own vinegars at 610 Magnolia, his restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky, using whole raw persimmons, peaches and fennel...

Chocolate-coffee ice cream and cake squares put good things together

Cake and ice cream make a good couple. They balance each other out. One’s churned cold, the other’s baked hot. One’s creamy, the other crumbles. One loves cold weather, the other resents it. Blistering marital bliss. Ice cream insists on arctic temperatures; show it a cupboard or countertop, and it goes all drippy. Give cake a shelf...
