I have shopped at almost every Central Market and this one, the original is still my favorite. I love it!!! Please don't ever close any of your stores!! I will be most unhappy.

Beautiful food, fresh, prepared foods ready to cook, lots of bulk items, large seafood selection. Just a great food store to find pretty much anything you can think of to make that special dish you crave.

When you have to eat at Central Market, go inside, get soup, salad bar, or something like that in the store. Skip the cafe for food but you can still sit out there and enjoy your friends :) This is especially useful if the line...More

Central Market Cafe revamped their menu a while back, and they now have a wide variety of options to please just about anyone. This place gets annoyingly crowded at times, but that's because you can't beat it for families. It's casual, inexpensive and has plenty...More

This was a good place to stop for to-go food on the way back to our hotel. Looks like a big Whole Foods, but they have more variety.

Jennifer, you may want to call them directly, but I think they do. Austin is such a dog friendly town. By the way, just got back from Vegas and was surprised to see several dogs in the casinos and hotels. Not sure if they... More
