Find ceviche plantain chips, beef-flavored seaweed crackers, and matcha biscuit sticks at the Buford Highway Farmers Market

301

To hold you over between BuHi restaurant meals, head to the snack aisles of the Buford Highway Farmers Market for an around-the-world tour of munchies, including visits to Mexico and South Korea, the Philippines and China, El Salvador and Russia. Our favorite of the bunch: GGE Wheat Crackers, which are like tiny cylinders of dry, prepackaged ramen noodles. The oddest: the Ukrainian, crouton-like bread snacks with an intensely smoky sausage flavor that will take you back to summer camp. The cutest: milk-chocolate mushroom caps with cookie stems from Lithuania. Not feeling any of those? We’ve got every other possible craving covered below.
