Eel in Atlanta?

San Francisco hound visiting family in Atlanta for Xmas. I want to cook eel for Xmas dinner, but my family members who live in Atlanta don't know where to find it. Any ideas? Saltwater or freshwater will both work. I'll be in midtown but with access to a car so I can get anywhere. Thanks in advance for the help!

  1. Places to check are Dekalb Farmer's Market, Buford Highway Farmer's Market, Super H and Hong Kong Supermarket. I believe I've seen eel available at Buford Hwy Market and HK Supermarket, before, but the others are usually great to find anything under the sun.

      Thanks for the recommendations! I found live eel at the Buford highway farmers market, along with lots of other fun stuff
