This is easy. In my humble opinion, it has the best fruit, vegetables, meat, fish and deli of any grocery store in Austin. Friendly people, clean and organized. Once you have been a frequent customer the people know your name and exactly how you like your items.

This is a place where you can spend the whole day shopping and eating. I have never seen such a wide variety and choice of items in any one market - from farm fresh produce to simple meals to gourmet wines and cheeses - you name it and most probably they have it. The staff is also very helpful -... More

The shopping is fun, the selections are overwhelming. My husband, myself and two kids (7 years) went to eat. The food was pretty bland. My boys ordered spaghetti and meatball and neither one liked it, and they are not picky. My sandwich was ok. My husband ordered some type of BBQ sandwich and wasn't pleased. It was about $50 for...

This is the place to get food, beverages and go listen to music too! It was like a Whole Foods on steroids. The cheese section was as large as some corner stores. They seemed to carry just about everything. The layout is a little confusing, but it was great to have everything under one roof.

A great Austin home-grown landmark. Just visiting the store and walking the aisles is a grand experience. They have a mind-blowing selection of fresh produce that usually offers free samples of fresh squeezed juices. There is a huge selection of, wine and a 60' wall of every beer you've ever heard of and some you haven't. The entire grocery experience... More

The cafe at Central Market features a constant variety of inexpensive gourmet chef-prepared foods for eating there or take out. The quality and quantity of items is amazing and imaginative, ranging from unique specialties like bison enchiladas, grilled seafood delicacies, and decadent desserts to staples like huge sandwiches, fine pizzas, tasty soups, healthful salads, great teas and local beers.
