Grocery store with great fresh deli, salad bar, sushi, bakery and fresh meats and fish. A real treat.

FOODIES, THIS IS GOURMET HEAVEN. Seriously. I've lived in Houston 2 years and I have never seen a supermarket like this place. It will BLOW YOUR MIND. You will stop every 10 feet just to ogle the shelves, and the fresh produce area (it is vast) is a sight to behold all by itself. You will probably have to take pictures. By the way; the sandwiches in the deli are just as impressive as the store; they are enormous and absolutely gourmet. I take one sandwich home and eat it over 2 meals. Also cool indoor and outdoor seating areas, and often the place has festivals and events!

The best Sandwich I ever had. It's hard to make your own sandwich for the first time when you don't know how their toppings taste like, but no matter what you put it will blend well and taste delicious (probably because of their Sauces)

Central Market is the go-to gourmet, luxury, upscale grocery store in Houston, appropriately located inside the Loop just blocks from the Galleria mall. Technically, there’s only one Central Market. (It is owned, however, by its less glamorous parent company, San Antonio-based “HEB” [look up what that stands for for a good laugh], the state’s family grocery store chain.) The wine, bakery, and cheese selections are impressive enough; with an ample takeaway section – including sandwiches made to order, sushi, and a salad bar – and a multi-level indoor and outdoor patio (sometimes with live music), it’s also a great place for lunch.

Nice, clean store with a large variety of healthy food. There is sometimes a live band out on the patio. Somewhat expensive, but worth.

If you spend any significant amount of time in Houston and find yourself at a party that's being catered, you'll likely hear that Central Market did the food. It's a staple of high-end and down-home party planners across the city for one simple reason - it's good. And fortunately, they have a cafe which is quick, clean, and delicious, so you can sample a bit of everything.

Whether you are looking for simple times to stock the fridge or gourmet specialty food items, Central Market is the place to go.
I regularly bring visitors here as part of my "local tour" as it is simply an amazing store, not to be missed. Plus, there are so many great food things here!
From fresh juices to an abundance of gorgeous produce, fresh off the farm meats and a to-go/prepared food section that will knock your socks off. Central Market can't be missed!

Central Market is like a massive Whole Foods or an all organic store. This is a pretty enormous supermarket filled with a mixture of organic. If you are looking for a bite to eat or need to do a bit of shopping this is a place to go but it is more on the pricier side.

This is a fun grocery store, with perhaps one of the best and extensive "meals-to-go set up I have seen. And because it all looked so good, I decided to buy dinner here and have a great dinner back in my hotel room instead of usual opening night beer and wings soiree at the Flying Saucer. I also stopped by the wine and beer area, which also had a very impressive selection.

The place was packed, but the lines moved in a fast and friendly manner. The band playing outside was a nice touch too.

Best produce you'll find in Houston! Lots of fresh food. A tad pricy.
