Meat

Central Market’s friendly, knowledgeable meat cutters recommend cuts, offer cooking tips, and trim the fat for you. Our meat counter is open-view, so you can see their work first-hand. In search of a special cut or need a kosher option? Just ask our experts.

Natural Beef, Chicken, Pork, and Lamb

We carefully select farmers and ranchers who are committed to animal welfare and environmentally conscious methods, so you can feel good about buying any meat that bears our name. The animals are raised without added hormones or antibiotics and fed a strict diet according to our own strict specifications, which means our natural beef, chicken, pork, and lamb are the best-tasting, most reliably tender meats you can serve.

Marinated Meats, Sausages, and Signature Burgers

In addition to being delicious, our signature marinated meats, handmade sausages, and hand-formed burgers are real time-savers. With signature flavors like herb Dijon or orange honey habañero, our marinated meats – chicken breasts, pork tenderloin, and sirloin for fajitas – please even the most persnickety palates. Plus, we use a vacuum tumbler to marinate our meat, so it stays tender and juicy.

Our in-store sausage-meisters start with the freshest cuts of chicken and pork, then add signature seasonings to create breakfast selections like maple blueberry, mild or spicy Italian pork, customer favorites like chicken feta spinach, and so many more. Beef and turkey burgers also are made by hand daily and get the Foodie stamp of approval. Think ancho pepper Jack, Cajun cheddar, and turkey with Gorgonzola and cranberry.

We’re proud to be one of only two retailers in the country to adhere to the rigorous standards of the United States Department of Commerce’s Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) plan. This means we are inspected by the city, state, and USDC. The quality control for our seafood handling and processing is under the most sanitary conditions.

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of events do you cater? >

We cater all events, big or small, from dinner parties and birthday celebrations to office get-togethers and weddings. We prepare every meal – breakfast, lunch, and dinner – as well as platters of appetizers, cheese and charcuterie, and desserts. Our catering menu is designed to accommodate groups of 10 or more.

Do you deliver? Is there a minimum purchase required? >

Yes, we deliver. We request that you place your order for delivery at least 24 hours in advance. While there is no minimum purchase required for delivery, the fees vary depending on your ZIP code.

Do you do same-day catering? >

We do have menu options for same-day orders, but we recommend calling your store so they can try to accommodate your needs. It’s always best to give us at least 24 hours’ notice. Same-day delivery is particularly challenging, but in-store pickup may be an option.

What is the catering cancellation policy? >

If your order is canceled after 6pm the day before pick-up, there will be a 50% charge.

Do you offer vegetarian and vegan items? >

Our catering menu is seasonal and includes an assortment of vegetarian selections and a few vegan items, such as fruit bowls and vegetable platters (without dressings or dips). With enough notice, our chefs can work with you to create a specialized menu for your guests.

Do you provide staff and rentals? >

We can support you with all of your staffing and rental needs. We have great relationships with companies who offer those services, and we will work with you to make sure your needs are met.

Do you offer any discounts? >

No, we don’t offer any discounts or price breaks. However, if you have a charity or other nonprofit event you would like us to consider, you can fill out an online community partnership application, available at any of our Central Market stores. Because of the volume of requests we receive, please allow four to six weeks for a reply.

Can I order something off the menu? >

Yes. You can include anything from our Chef’s Case in your catering order – or anything we sell in the store, for that matter. Our catering experts are happy to work with you to create a custom menu.

Can I order wine and have it delivered with my catering? >

We can help you make beer and wine selections for your event, but our alcohol license only allows for pickup, not delivery.

Can I substitute bread on the boxed lunch? >

Yes. Please let us know when you place your order.

Do I have to heat the food? >

Depending on your selection, some foods will need to be heated before serving, although most of our food is intended to be served at room temperature. If you would like your dishes hot upon pickup or delivery, please let us know so we can try to accommodate you. Also, we recommend keeping the food refrigerated until one hour prior to your event if you aren’t going to serve it right away.

I only need a meal for a few. What do you recommend? >

Central Market catering is designed for groups of 10 or more guests. If you need a meal for fewer people, we suggest coming to the store to explore our Chef Prepared and Bakery departments. Our chefs prepare hundreds of dishes and desserts daily, and you can sample anything you like.
