I wouldn't have thought of writing a review about Central Market until my father came to town and just loved the place. He loves to cook and was enamored with the selection of food he found there. I'll admit that I was even impressed. You can find fresh fruits and veggies of every possible variety, an immaculate meat/seafood counter, wines, fresh-ground coffees, a bakery, candy counter, extensive deli, olive bar, and prepared food section. A little like Whole Foods, but on a larger scale. Go hungry because they often have lots of samples to try. A trip to Central Market will run you a few more bucks than your typical Kroger trip, and you won't find generic things like Coca-Cola or paper products, but the food is fantastic. My father made 3 trips during his five day visit! I can't complain because one night he made Chicken Cacciatore and roasted purple Peruvian potatoes.
