They have what you need., 10/17/2008

Central Market is truly a foodies paradise. Once you get used to the store, you know what to buy and what to avoid. Make sure to get on their mailing list, as they will send you coupons to use each... week. The coupons normally give you something free (pound of chicken, pasta and pasta sauce, or $$ off bulk items) with a $40 purchase. The produce is unrivaled in the Dallas area. The fresh herbs at $1 a bunch is half of what you pay at Tom Thumb or Kroger. The bulk area has great prices on dried spices, figs, nut, coffee, couscous and more. It is also a great place to go prior to making your holiday gingerbread house as it has very interesting candies. The butcher department has a great selection of lean high quality choices but it is more expensive than its competitors. I really like this place. I can always find the things my children love from blood orange italian soda to asian pears.

Unique shopping at a price, 10/17/2008

In more flush times I would shop here weekly- now a little less frequently. I love the store. You can find items here that are not available any where else in Dallas. They do it right- it just cost... an arm and a leg

So Much Fun - and Totally Worth It.

I love shopping at Central Market. Firstly, it makes you *feel* classy, because everything is *expensive* and *special*. I always made a point to go right after getting my paycheck, when I was sure I could afford it. The myriad samples available in every section, from fresh fruit, fresh bread, cereals, chips, ice cream, cookies, cakes, brownies, fish, cheese, meat - it's all enticing, delicious, and set out just for you. The fresh tortillas are not to be passed by, nor is the gelato bar. When you don't feel like cooking, the prepared foods section is a (pricey) life-saver - but totally worth it. I wish I lived in Dallas again, just so I could keep shopping there.

Quality at a price

Love this store; however, we ususually only go on special occasions. Love their cheese selections and meat department. I have gotten some of the freshest seafood here. Their wine selection and service in this dept. is unbeatable. Also, love the food-to-go great for date night! Go, eat,enjoy!

Husbands will cook if they shop here

My husband is fascinated with this place. And I therefore have gotten some fabulous meals because of that! He travels but when he is in town, he'll hit this store daily!

If you need something special, great place to go

I don't like to go here very often - too crowded, rather pricey. But when I want something for a special occasion, it's my go-to place. Their cheese selection is out of this world. I love both of their chicken salads at the deli. They have a large gourmet candy selection. Tons of wine. Good sushi. You name it!

Quality not discounts

I love shopping here but have to be careful not to go overboard. It's a great grocery to find something out of the ordinary but a little hard on the pocket book for everyday groceries. I love the bread choices and if you go at the right time you can make a meal out of all the samples!

Quality has a Price

You won't find too many values at Central Market, but you'll definitely get what you pay for...quality, fresh ingredients and a high-end selection. Need a certain sauce, wine, that perfect floral bouquet or a specific kind of cheese? Then come here! It's great to just survey all the fabulous produce and specialty items, and if you're craving a fabulous steak or fish, you'll find it here. This is not where I'd shop for milk and bread, but they do have it. Save this for the special times and people, and you'll still be back often.

Fresh Flowers and Food

Everything is so fresh. The flowers are reasonably priced and so are the birthday cakes. The wine selection is great too.

My 1st Choice

Fresh Fresh Fresh! I could spend hours in Central Market and that is a good thing. Central Market has the freshest produce, widest variety of meat and great selection of drinks from around the world. They prices are little high but the quality is top notch. Central Market is my 1st Choice when it comes to a Grocery Store.

Get your Dublin DR. Pepper here!

A divsion of HEB grocery in San Antonio this place is awesome. You can find things here you cannot get anywhere else (or atleast anywhere close.) like the Dublin Dr peppers a six pack for about $8.00 but its cheaper than driving to dublin Texas to get them yourself.
