An excursion to HEB's Central Market...

Bill told me Central Market was a hell of a place.  We decided to go there today.  It was bustling with people and appeared to be Whole Foods on steroids.  In fact, it was just as crowded as Whole Foods often is.  I was impressed by all the stuff, though...


Nice produce, not that we had much time to look at it...


It was a busy day...


I really enjoy fresh pineapple and they sure had a lot of 'em for sale...


There's something fishy about this...


Wonder if the wet floor sign is up because there was an escapee...

As we shopped, there was a duo sitting in the cafe playing music.  They both had guitars and it sounded like the female half of the duo was doing her best Bonnie Raitt impression.  She sang "Angel From Montgomery" and "Louise".


Say cheese?


I liked the cheese section, even though I don't like to eat cold cheeses.  I only like my cheese melted and mild.  I bought some nice French butter, though.  They had an impressive array.


Lots of interesting beers, including some cool ones from Texas.  I spent more time in the wine area.


Brewniversity...


Time to check out...


This parking lot made me have flashbacks to shopping at Whole Foods in Buckhead, near Atlanta...


This van came by as we were about to leave.  A sign from above?

All in all it was a productive trip.  Shopping at Central Market was a lot like shopping at Whole Foods.  The difference was the woman singing in the cafe.  I don't think I have ever encountered that at another high end grocery store.  I think I like Whole Foods better.  I also like shopping at Fresh Market, but they don't have them in the San Antonio area.  We'd have to travel to Houston for the pleasure of The Fresh Market and its very appealing lighting.

I did enjoy Central Market more than the local HEB, though, so that's a good thing.
