Amazing store. Local told us about it.. Competes and beats Whole Foods in its home town. We visited 3 times to pick up things for the fridge and road, and ate dinner here with live music outside.

The cafe serves a purpose, but my tasteless burger and the burned salmon were terrible. We left hungry and we will not be back.

I've been to various locations in Central Market in Texas, Dallas, Fort Worth and Southlake, more or less are all the same products themselves and the same prices, the convenient thing is that if you want you can even eat something after shopping.

I was pretty bummed because I'd let 3 gift cards expire (my fault) that were given to me to use towards a cooking class. Not only was the staff sympathetic, but one of them offered to see if she could get a free cooking class...More

Like Whole Foods, but better. I LOVE the layout of this store, and my daughter loves the free balloons at the entry way. They often have free handouts all over the place, from nice cheeses to hot cider and sports drinks. There is plenty of...More
