Central Market not only offers unique foods from around the world, but also community events.

Bon Appétit has named one of Houston’s markets one of the best in the country. The rankings, done by E.C. Gladstone, were not based on the usual indicators such as efficiency. Instead, these rankings were based on quality and selection, and give more attention to the freshness and experience of shopping at these stores.

Houston’s Central Market was named one of the 8 best in the country. With 9 locations, all in Texas, this store succeeds in blending farmer market freshness with the bulk needed at a large grocery store. The store also features items from around the world to entice cultured shoppers.

When describing what Central Market does better, Gladstone writes: “Almost everything: Huge produce selection? Check. Grass-fed, organic, free-range, sustainable meats and poultry? Check. In-house bakery? Check. Cooking classes with famed local chefs? Check! Plus a salt bar and a fresh guacamole cart. Don't hate.”

The store is also noted for its impressive selection of cheeses as well as cultural events. The store hosts live music events as well as classes like “Sushi 101” and “Wine Workshops”.
