We went with a group of friends. The produce section was great, very fresh and a huge variety. This big selection we also found in other sections like snacks and cheeses. Clean and welcoming. We bought food and drinks and had them in the patio, which had live music and the kids played in the nearby playground.

This is a great market to shop for things you didn't know you wanted! The selection of cheese (and samples) is great and the variety of organic and local foods and beverages is wonderful. We also had lunch there - Cobb salad was very tasty but turkey sandwich was very dry. The people were nice and friendly, and we ended... More

Relaxing grocery shopping where you have many and all locally grown organic food. Enjoy a meal prepared by culinary students of Austin 's own culinary Academy at a fair price. Welcoming atmosphere where either you come with your family, friends or solo; very enjoyable on Fridays when there's live music without the costly cover charge.

Central Market is a great place to shop - it has lots of variety of organic, healthy foods. We also enjoyed the Cafe - the burgers were great, the Asian bowl was a little too salty, the salads were delicious!

We go here occasionally and it is like being in a different world. That's a good thing. Wholesome, natural foods from fruits to nuts. What a place!

The one side has a cafeteria sort of food to eat. You order and then pick it up. A wide selection of iced teas. The other side has a small market including a variety of cheese, baked goods, and vegetables. Try the cookies...so soft and chewy.

I first shopped here back when in was in college when they first opened this location, and I love that it hasn't changed much since then. This is a great neighborhood grocery store with healthy and organic options. If I lived closer, I'd shop here all the time! We stopped in over the weekend on our way through town to... More

This is easy. In my humble opinion, it has the best fruit, vegetables, meat, fish and deli of any grocery store in Austin. Friendly people, clean and organized. Once you have been a frequent customer the people know your name and exactly how you like your items.

This is a place where you can spend the whole day shopping and eating. I have never seen such a wide variety and choice of items in any one market - from farm fresh produce to simple meals to gourmet wines and cheeses - you name it and most probably they have it. The staff is also very helpful -... More
