So why bother to go out of the way to the Asian Markets (at least the good ones) on Buford Highway?
Because four ears of spindly corn, barely fit for mule feed cost $2.99 at Publix. (The picture below is from a month ago – $1 worth of good corn…)
The entire load in the picture above (2 cans of Thai coconut milk, xiao bai tsai (baby bok choy), peeled garlic (about 2 1/2 head worth), black plums, Taiwan bok choy (funny, I can’t find a Chinese name for this anywhere – help?), 2 large cucumbers, 2 bunches of scallions and 2 1/2 lbs of chicken cost $10 at the Atlanta Farmer’s Market.
