Central Market is top notch in all of their departments. There is the traditional grocery store items and the bakery, deli, produce etc...is exceptional. The bakery is well stocked with tons of different kinds of cakes, pastries, lots of products made by small companies in the area. Moving on, there is a huge salad bar with a ton of different options. The meat case is packed with a variety of meat and cheese, more than I have seen anywhere. There is a separate area of prepared foods with about 5 different soups a day, sandwiches, burritos, turkey dinners and the standard fried chicken, jo-jos etc. Central Market has a bulk foods section with granolas, baking items, tons of candy (including sugar free) and a nice wall of bulk teas and spices. The store also has a nice selection of beauty and bath products all of which are natural. There is a large section of asian foods. Seafood and meat cases are always are fresh and well displayed. I am very picky about my produce and Central Market is one of two places I will buy it from (ballard market being the other). The produce here is reasonably priced and always fresh. There is a sushi counter in the middle of the produce and sushi is made throughout the day. The floral area always has lots to choose from. Prices at Central Market are a bit high, but their sale items are a deal. I like going to Central Market because they have what I might describe as a food court in the store. There is a Nathans Hot Dog place that also serves pizza, a mexican place and chinese food. Central Market is consistently clean (although, this doesn't seem true for the restrooms) and the workers are always friendly.
