Had a chance to go with the family to pick up some local food and prepared foods. Such a great market and you also have the opportunity to sit down with everyone and eat and drink anything you have bought. A definite stop to pick up some tasty treats.

I was in Houston for a about 10 days and stayed not too far at the Westin Hotel at the Galleria. This AMAZING supermarket was only a short bus ride away. On my first vist I spent a couple of hours just amazed at the fantastic produce and range of products. This is a true GEM on Houston. This store... More

Fresh everything! Lots of everything! Organic options, too! Never knew that many apples or grapes or olives or coffee beans could be purchased in one store. Bakery, deli, beer garden extraordinaire, wines as far as you can see, prepared gourmet meals, fresh cut flowers!! I drive the 90 miles to shop there whenever my family demands Paella Valencia! It's the... More

Everyone is so helpful and the food is delicious! They have items you can't find anywhere else. I have never been disappointed in their products. Also, they offer lots of free food samples. Make sure to sample the organic coffee. It is always yummy.

Try their southwest meatloaf sandwich; fresh poppyseed bread, spicey spread, meatloaf generously piled on, caramelised onions, cheese and jalapenos pickes.... grilled and served. Irresistable. And that's just one choice of several. Then there are multiple salad choices. Everything fresh and the best quality. This is actually a gourmet food supermarket (where else in Houston can you find purple cauliflowers, caviar,... More

I love Central Market. We don't shop here often because it is a bit out of the way, but it's a great place to get fresh vegetables, seafood, meat. Good wine selection, yummy bakery, lots of fresh herbs, great deli, amazing cheese selection. We were looking for some lemongrass and lime leaves for a Thai soup. Kroger, HEB and Whole... More

HEB, look where you're located. High end real estate and you have the nastiest bathroom around. Look at all the bathrooms in all your new outlying/suburban areas - they're lovely. At the very least, they're clean. The Central Market women's room is embarrassingly bad: old, always filthy and cramped. It is always full of your employees chatting away. I HATE... More

I love HEB, but their Central Market store is awesome! There are products from all over the world and fresh is their game! Looking for that strange veggie or a rate cut of meat? Come here! Wonderful wine selection as well. We buy our favorite Malbec here as no one else has it. Cheese galore, seafood galore, meat market galore,... More

This may be the best place to buy sandwiches in Houston. For a mere $7.99 (best deal in town), you get a choice of freshly baked bread, choice of pretty amazing sandwich spreads, choice of 4 different toppings from a list of over 20, choice of filling (ham, roast beef, roast pork loin, meat loaf, falafel, just to name a...
