The location used to house a Kroger location. That grocery store closed in May 2017 in order to “make Kroger more competitive” in the Atlanta area, a spokesman said at the time. The store’s 118 employees were offered jobs at other Kroger locations.

City Farmers Market’s flagship location is on Buford Highway in Chamblee. It has a second Buford Highway location in Brookhaven and opened a new store in Marietta this April. The company also has stores in Norcross and Duluth. City Farmers Market offers a wide selection of produce and ingredients often used in Asian and Hispanic cuisines. 

The Snellville location will be open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.
