We're downright smug about the fact that there aren't any grocery stores like our beloved Central Markets anywhere else in the world. Visiting chefs and out-of-town shoppers leave with wistful sighs and longings and we know why. It's a grocery store, it's a cafe with a live music venue, it's a bona-fide tourist attraction, but most of all, it's ours.
