We’re visiting in Austin and were taken to Central Market for dinner on Friday. We appreciated the music with the meal. (Our little granddaughter likes to dance after dinner.) The food itself (sandwiches) was quite good. My sweet potato fries were tasty but not very...More

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
