Great Selection from Everything from Fresh Produce to Prepared Foods 3/29/2006

The prices are rather high, but Central Market is a huge store with everything a gourmet chef could want. The produce section is the first thing you see when you walk into the store. Central Market offers a wide selection of locally-grown produce, organic produce, and exotic produce. Freshly squeezed juices and precut/pre-washed vegetables are also available. Next you'll make your way through the meat and seafood area which again offer a large variety not found elsewhere. There are always several types of freshly ground sausages made at the store and, again, locally-produced (or least from this state) and organic varieties of meat and seafood are emphasized. There is wild game here, too - I've even seen rattlesnake meat here. Next, there is a sushi counter followed by the beer and wine area. Wines and beers are organized by country/region of origin. The health and beauty section offers a wide range of vitamins and supplements and natural skincare and hair care products. Then there is a section of the store with canned and dry goods which also offers some ethnic foods (as do all areas of the store). The bulk foods section, especially the spices, can be surprisingly cheap. I've found I can often get enough of a spice to refill the whole jar for less than a dollar. The frozen foods section has many organic and ethnic options. The bakery and cheese sections. I have tried the fresh-baked breads, tortillas, and breakfast pastries which have all been good. I've also ordered a couple of birthday cakes here - there are some delicious decadent dark chocolate cakes. Central Market offers cheeses from around the world, including goat's and sheep's milk cheeses. Next is the deli/prepared foods area. There is a salsa bar, a gelateria, a sandwich counter, a refrigerated section with sandwiches, salads, and pizzas, as well as the main deli counter which features a large selection of hot and cold foods. You can get everything from steak to potato salad here. Finally, the employees are very knowledgeable and happy to help. more
