H-E-B’s Central Market brand remains primarily known as one of Austin’s favorite grocery outlets. Yet both locations have featured our town’s favorite consumable – live music – since their inceptions. Founded in 1994 and adjacent to the Heart Hospital of Austin, the original North Lamar location puts an emphasis on family fare thanks in part to its large outdoor playscape, which sits just behind its cafe and patio stage hosting Latin music, Americana, children’s music, and Austin mainstays like Ginger Leigh, all for free.
The vinaigrette-dressed beet and barley salad, tossed with mint and pumpkin seeds is inspired simplicity. Move on to luscious house-cured charcuterie.
This market/restaurant from Houston's Mandola clan attracts crowds with imported Italian deli meats and cheeses, fresh-baked rustic breads and pastries, and homemade gelatos and sorbettos. Enjoy well-selected wines by the bottle or the glass and prepared foods to eat in the cavernous, crowded dining room or to take out.
This grocery and deli offers a selection of blintzes, fresh-smoked or marinated fish, caviar, top-quality meats, and Russian breads. The daily lunch specials ensure a surprise treat for every visit. Mmm, kartoshkas.
Both this and Downtown Farmers' Market (growers'-only markets) are projects of the Sustainable Food Center, whose mission is "improve access to local, healthy and affordable food for children and adults in Central Texas." Food Tamps
