Now, twenty years later, we are still cooking, but not even close to being done, and we thought that was cause for celebration. So let the party begin… Starting Wednesday, September 10th and running for the next twenty days we will be celebrating food, life, and you our customers, with specials and special guests in every store.
There are a few can't miss items, and the first of those is our commemorative 20th Anniversary cookbook filled with over 120 of the tastiest recipes from dedicated Central Market shoppers, guest chefs and store Partners, the book will resonate with cooks everywhere, from passionate foodies to culinary professionals. We also have collaborated with Wüsthof Knives for a special knife and cutting board set that is specially monogrammed to celebrate not only our twentieth anniversary, but also Wüsthof's 200th (wow!). One of my favorite items for our special anniversary is a heritage barbeque sauce made by Stubb's Bar-B-Q in Austin, last made twenty years ago with a mix of tangy tomatoes and old-fashion sorghum for just a hint of sweetness.
Tickets to the 20th Anniversary party are $40 per person, with proceeds going to benefit Austin’s Sustainable Food Center, a nonprofit organization that cultivates a healthy community by strengthening the local food system and improving access to nutritious, affordable food. Get your tickets today.
