We stopped by here on the way home just to get a snack. We wandered in the grocery store side and were floored by the amount and variety of foods. We love more natural stuff and there was a great assortment and availability of organic foods. The meat department is excellent, with real butchers. What started as just a browsing... More

Everything is delicious. I come weekly for the soup that is made from scratch, not canned. No nasty artificial thickeners. Just nice whole ingredients. I also occasionally get the pizza, hot sandwiches or BBQ. All are fantastic. Bands play every Friday and Saturday on the patio from 6 to 9pm.

We decided to try lunch at Central Market Cafe on Hulen in Fort Worth, the salad bar at the Café is expansive. There isn't much that they don't have available that you can put on a salad. They had several dressings available, however I would think that they would label the options, can't tell the dressings from color. The salad... More

This is a surprisingly good place to put together a tasty dinner from the salad bar or pizza/sandwich counter or chef case, then take it outside on the patio and enjoy a good al fresco dinner on a 'cool' FW evening. Many nights there is good quality entertainment with live performances most weekends.

I was so pleased to find foods, wines and spices from different cultures in one location. Let's not forget the cooked and prepared deli foods that are to die for. This is more than just a market it's foodie heaven for the gastronomes in most of us.

On Friday and Saturday nights, this is a great place to grab some bites, cheese, wine and whatever else you want and sit on the patio and listen to the live music

If you have never gone to central Market for lunch or a take home dinner, you have a great experience in store for yourself. Whatever I have ever gotten there has been better than good. Terrific selections.

Wander around and find exactly what you want, but the salad bar, olive bar, and soup bar are the best around. It's self serve, so don't expect to see a waiter. It's all about the quality of food and the taste. Oh, and don't forget the bakery. They bake a green olive bread that is to die for, and a... More

Look I shop here at least 3 times a month. The food store has the freshest produce, HEB house brand staples, bulk bins for tea, spices (a real bargain) grains, dried beans, pasta, granola and more. The bakery is intoxicating. An entire department is devoted to cheese (600 varieties) Locals bring out of town visitors to CM just for the... More
