Honor Thy Graduate
Underneath all this spring rain, the graduation season is upon us! It's time to turn your attention to planning a party for the houseful of friends and family ready to honor your Class of 2015 grad.
Need pre-meal munchies? For big-tasting small bites, including the ever-reliable salsas and dips, as well as fun fare such as prosciutto-wrapped asparagus, browse our available Appetizers for starters guaranteed to get the party started. Cheese platters also make for great appetizers. And what goes well with cheese? Crackers! Don’t forget our Cracker Baskets when choosing your cheese platters.
Of course, “planning a party” actually means “choosing platters and trays catered by Central Market.” And have we got plenty to choose from, whether you need hors d'oeuvres, desserts, or anything in between.
Planning a dinner? Design your own meal. These heat-and-serve selections are perfect for parties or family gatherings, and you can round them out with a selection of veggies and desserts.
For the stress-free party, choose your perfect party platter, give us a call and we’ll take care of the rest!
If you're running low on time, rely on our awesome Chef's Case for your graduation lunch or dinner. You'll find great go-to favorites like quesadillas, grilled salmon, grilled asparagus, a variety of delicious quinoa salads, and so much more!
While you're in store, don't forget a bouquet of beautiful stems for your star student. Roses, tulips, sunflowers, or even potted orchids, make lovely gifts. (Tip: Our bunches of 18-stem Roses are on sale this week!) We also can custom-make special arrangements for the big day. (Another Tip: Fresh flowers make wonderful "thank you" gifts for teachers.)
What else do you need for your graduation celebration? A cake! (Our cupcakes. We like cupcakes, too.) Our expert Bakers can whip you up a sweetly delicious masterpiece. Just walk in and choose your favorite.
Going DIY for graduation? No problem. We can help with that, too—Rotisserie chickens and new family salads in our Prepared Food sections; steaks, ribs, fajitas, and burgers from our Market, and of course all the peak-of-season produce you could need, not to mention the world's best sauces, spices, and oils. Stop by, grab a basket, and get started!
Final Tip: Parents and caregivers, don't sell yourselves short. You deserve a "congrats" too. And by "a congrats," we mean wine. You deserve wine. Which we have.
