    Central Market: Big Tastes of Texas

    You know how Central Market likes to do those occasional festivals, where they feature a culinary region from somewhere around this big ol' planet of ours, decking out their already excellent store with new products and free samples and so on, right? Well, for this fest they're featuring tasty delights from our own Lone Star state. We mean, fine comestibles from the likes of Picnik, Teo Gelato, Rowdy Rooster Salsa, Delysia Chocolatier, Roam Ranch Bison, SoCo Ginger Beer, and a whole lot more – at both Central Market locations. (And – bonus – they've got some Texas-themed classes at their upstairs Cooking School on North Lamar as well. Because who doesn't want to, for instance, learn how to butcher a boar with Jesse Griffiths?)
    Through May 28
