Ahh! I am so excited to share this post with you! This was one of the best parts of our trip to Houston. On Saturday after shopping, we went to Central Market, a Texas grocery store chain. We like to take a peek through local grocery stores on vacation. Weird? Maybe! Fun? Definitely! This place was amazing. Honestly, it put Whole Foods to shame, and we all know how I feel about Whole Foods. We did not buy any food as we did not have a cooler but the experience was worth the trip.
fresh produce - brioche samples - a sale on all French imports
amazing breads and baked goods
cheese - cheese - more cheese - oh, and an olive bar
beautiful flowers - I love hydrangeas!
our purchases - we bough 7 bottles of wine and parchment muffin tin liners - can you tell how excited we were about our shopping trip?
We would be in so much trouble if we lived in Houston. I think I would be at Central Market everyday! The prices were good and the selection was amazing. The environment was different that other grocery stores. It kind of reminded me of IKEA as you follow a path around the store to each section with little shortcuts throughout. We sampled anything and everything including breads, sausage, and cheese with appropriate pairings. Oh and we had wine samples too! I just cannot stop talking about this grocery store and how amazing it was. Next time we go back we will be bringing a cooler so we can buy goodies for our own kitchen.
Mom, you would love this place! I imagine you will find dad sampling something around every corner.
