Tasty Tuesdays: Best Austin Grocery Store
- Whole Foods Market started in Austin almost 30 years ago — and is home to the corporate headquarters and flagship store.
- Central Market opened it’s first store here — on North Lamar in 1994.
- Wheatsville Co-op is the only retail consumer food co-op in Texas and its right here in Austin!
Others in town include HEB, Randalls, Fiesta, Royal Blue Grocery, Asia Market, Fresh Plus, MT Supermarket, Newflower, Sprouts, Sun Harvest, and more.
Last week alone, I visited the Triangle Farmers Market, Central Market, Whole Foods, HEB, Randalls, and the Downtown Austin Farmer’s Market — all in five days. That, and spending time with my friend Carla who has challenged herself to go for a year without shopping at a grocery store (she can do Farmer’s Markets though) got me thinking about the many grocery stores I visit.
