Central Market Westgate has Upped the Wow Factor

If you live in Austin or are a regular visitor to Central Market Westgate, you should be familiar with the extreme makeover that has been happening at the store over the last six months. We have been lifting walls and tucking exclusive products into brand new areas all over this store, and now we are really excited because the big reveal is here.

The biggest place that we upped the ante is in the center of the store, this is where you find coffee, bulk food, and shelves filled with your favorite chips, baking mixes, and drinks. But now, some great new imported additions like, couscous from Israel, tartlets from France, risotto from Italy, and delicious vinegars and preserves from Belgium have been added to our shelves. 

Then as you turn the corner our Partners in the coffee department have been really hard at work creating an area that we are just buzzing about. With everything you need to properly experience specialty coffee, including our own quarter bag roaster to roast eleven hand selected origin-specific, organic coffees. We began sourcing select green coffees from Brazil and Colombia and now are working with farmers and importers to create an assortment of great coffees from around the world that we will roast in store. Make sure you chat with the coffee partners while you are there, because after training in cupping, roasting and coffee extraction they are excited to teach you all they know about coffee from roasting to identifying flavors in a pour over cup.

Not to be out done by the coffee team, the bulk department has added more than 500 new items, including grains, teas, herbs, oils, vinegars and candies to their bins and barrels.
  • Westgate's bulk teas and herbs area now has the largest assortment of bulk teas and herbs in Texas with more than 220 bulk teas and 34 new herbs.
  • Crescendo bulk oils and vinegars are new and a premium quality product. The assortment includes 32 new oils, and 32 new vinegars made with real fruit.
  • Chocolate and candy is always a dazzling area and now you’ll find the largest assortment of specialty chocolate bars, as well as the largest assortment of organic chocolates, in Texas at this store. We feature many small-batch producers, traditional European producers and more.
As if all this is not enough, we have expanded the healthy living department, salad bar, and the cafe patio, just in time to enjoy live music on a warm summer night.

Come in and enjoy all the newly remodeled Central Market Westgate has to offer beginning June 5th. Then join us on June 6, from 5:00-8:00 PM for an ode to a store that is “South of the River, Left of Normal, and Right on Taste" during a self guided 'stroll around'-style food and wine tasting, for $10. Where you can sip and sample your way through over 30 demos with a commemorative etched wine glass, while enjoying live music throughout the store including Dale Watson and His Lone Stars. Proceeds from the evening benefit Health Alliance for Austin Musicians. Register for the stroll around on our website.

As a previous resident of San Antonio, we were very fond of our Central Market. Military retirement took use away and when trying to wax nostalgic and buy the Quick Cook Grains, 5 Grains we found that it was only available at Amazon.com @ "thebargainbox" for the price of $35 dollars for four 8.8 oz packages. Rather than let "thebargainbox" get wealthy from such pricing, why don't you offer it on line? Just a thought.
