Atlantans are cooking at home more and more these days. Mindful of the need to support local businesses and farms, people are ordering directly from Georgia farmers, shopping regularly at weekly farmers markets, buying pantry staples and ingredients from neighborhood markets and grocers, and purchasing products from enterprising food producers and delivery services.

Atlanta and its sprawling metro area are lucky to have a bountiful assortment of food producers, farmers, independent grocers, and crafty delivery services to shop from now to help buoy the local economy. Many businesses also include EBT and SNAP options for discounts or preordering capabilities for pickup at shops and farmers market locations around town.

Eater Atlanta rounded up a few local farms, food producers, delivery services, and other local food and beverage companies to consider when shopping for household supplies or ingredients for meals at home.
