Cruisin Down to Central Market

by Nicci on 03/29/2010

This past Thursday, I accepted the Chevy mission to cruise down to my local Central Market in Plano, Texas for some shopping.  Chevy provided me with a little shopping money, which came just in time for my monthly grocery trip.

Shopping + Food = Happy Foodie

I invited one my girlfriends, Kirstyn, to come along with me on this shopping event. We both have busy schedules so we did our shopping later in the evening.

My favorite department of Central Market was the produce department. They have a wide selection of fresh produce.

We spent some time with an employee showing us around every department.

We even sampled the Fermin Iberico Ham, wopping $179.00 a pound….Whoa.

Best tasting ham I’ve ever had in my life!

After three hours of fun, we loaded up the Malibu with our bags of goodies and headed home.

Kirstyn and I are already planning another trip to Central Market next week.

I went shopping with Kelsey and Trinity over the weekend too.  More fun pictures/video to come from that adventure.

Jealous! I adore Central Market! They have the best produce and bulk foods sections. And cheese, and wine, and hot foods…you get the point. :-p

Looks like a great time. that is so cool that you get to do this. I wanted to vote for you but it said you have to be a TX resident.

Wow Nicci.. beautiful photography! You are so lucky to have that awesome car for a month! woot! Have fun with it!

Kim @ CoffeeandBerries March 29, 2010 at 8:35 pm

Your blog is so cool! I just found it, and I already love it!

Those cakes look glorious!

And $179/pound! Whoa. For that price, that ham should come with a designer handbag to carry it in. :)

Trinity March 29, 2010 at 7:44 pm

The cakes! I’d like to dive right in. I had a blast at Whole Foods, but I’m up for a run to Central Market if you need another getaway! :D

'Drea March 29, 2010 at 6:21 pm

I’m glad that the ham tasted good. I didn’t even know that there existed hams that cost that much.

And those cakes? Wicked looking…

Whitney @ Lettuce Love March 29, 2010 at 5:28 pm
