Success! Thanks for posting your review of Central Market - Houston. You’ve done the world some good today.

Great shopping, but not as good as the north Austin original

I lived in Austin for two years, and I was lucky enough to live within walking distance of the original Central Market on North Lamar there. It may be unfair, but I only give 4 stars to the Houston Central Market, as I am comparing it to the one I frequented in Austin (which I would give 5 stars!).\r \r Don't get me wrong, Central Market on Westheimer is great. They almost always have what I need, including a decen... view more

If they don't have it... Good luck finding it in Houston!

Place has almost everything. Prices are a little high but you can't expect cheap when they serve up the highest quality. Whenever I'm in the area I try to go in and just walk around. It's like the Disneyland of Food!

Houston's gourmet market mecca

It may not quite be Galaries Lafayette, but, that'll do pig; and plenty of pig they have as one of the only importers of Spanish jabugo ham, said to be the best in the world (by myself AND other experts). Central Market wraps you in its inviting bosom of tasty samples, fresh brewed coffee and sumptuous produce, each carefully marked by origin. The layout of the store may be confusing at first, but after a singl... view more

Not just for food...check out their FLORAL department!!

I can't say enough praises about their floral department. Each time I buy flowers, we are amazed at how long they last. They get the freshest flowers. The 3 bunches for $12.99 can make anyone an amateur florist. Selection will vary based on what is fresh out in the market. Now, I have to sing the praises of Scott. I was sent to order flowers for my wedding. I'm the groom, not the bride. This was not fair but ... view more

ups and downs

Pros: Huge variety, delicious prepared foods, i have to stress how incredible the selection is. They have stuff you would never see anywhere else in Houston. The coffee selection, stuff you can buy in bulk, chocolate, wines, breads, etc - wow, there is so much variety! And the free samples! yum! I love bringing out of town guests here.\r \r Cons: Not enough parking, crowded at most hours of the day, the worst is... view more

Good selection, Bad traffic

I went there for the first time on a Saturday and was amazed at the produce; everything I needed and them some. The only problem with this place is that it gets extremely congested. My husband and I made the mistake of getting the larger cart and came to find out that it was very difficult to move around, turn, even wait at the deli. It was a little expensive but worth it. Overall, I would say I would go there ag... view more

Have I mentioned how much I LOVE this place?

The first time I ever went here 3 years ago, I spent a good 4 hours there...tasting, smelling, touching, and mostly tasting everything. Everyone at this store is extremely nice and very knowledgeable. There's a lady that works in fruits that we call the friendly fruit lady. She's always there giving free samples of the latest delicious fruit. Also, in the candy section, there's a lady who always has cool hair who kno... view more

A Foodie's Paradise

Central Market truly is a foodie's paradise. From the moment you walk in and look at all the produce. I am always amazed at the produce I can find here that I can't locate anywhere else. The fresh juices are amazing. The meat and seafood displays are incredible. Try some of their pre-marinated stuff- it is fantastic, and it only takes a few minutes to prepare. Their wine selection is to die for. The bulk section, th... view more

Everyone must try the California Connection sandwich!! I drive across town on a regular basis just to have this sandwich. It is the BEST I have ever had! Add mushrooms to it and it's a something your taste buds will beg you for.

Loves it

Although Central Market is expensive, the gourmet food can make a preson's mouth water! Try the bean and cheese tamales, chicken parmigana, or fresh lasagna. However, I don't do all of my grocery shopping here, because it can be quite overwhelming at times.
