Uncommon Grocery Shopping Experiences in Houston

Yes, we like our groceries in Texas.  Austin is home and headquarters of the Whole Foods phenomenon.  And the Hill Country-based Howard E. Butt family grocery chain, HEB, arguably reigns as the king grocer in H-town.  But here are some not-so-common grocery shopping experiences that help make a big city like ours feel like a cozy hometown to so many of us Houstonians....

Central Market - Westlayan @ Westheimer
  • Yes, it's become a bit mainstream, but we still only have ONE Central Market in town, so it still makes the cut
  • HEB's epicurean mecca- foodie heaven
  • Large-scale depot for hard-to-find culinary delights and prepared foods
  • Vast selections of cheeses, fresh-baked breads, pastries, premium meats, and wines
  • Premium floral department and eat-in deli
  • Cooking classes - great place to meet like-minded epicures or take your favorite date
