Central Market Brings Traditional British Cuisine to Dallas-Fort Worth  During ‘Passport United Kingdom’

Specialty grocery retailer to host two-week celebration of all things British, 

September 19 – October 2


Dallas – August 10, 2018 – Central Market invites shoppers on a culinary journey across the pond during, ‘Passport United Kingdom,’ September 19 through October 2. In celebration of all things British, Central Market will showcase traditional foods and ingredients along with hundreds of brilliant new items from England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.


The popular retailer’s annual Passport series has honored such countries and regions as Greece, Mexico, Italy, France, Brazil, Spain, Argentina and the Southern United States in recent years, bringing authentic food, wines, spices, coffees, cheeses, and all manner of pastas, produce, meats and seafood to Central Market customers.  Passport is much more than a weekend of product sampling—it is a virtual in-country voyage of international culinary discovery.


Throughout this year’s two-week foodie festival, proper British products and dishes will be available for sample and purchase including native Scottish Hebridean Salmon, award-winning sparkling wines, artisanal meat pies, Earl Grey brined rotisserie chicken, fish and chips, and pasties, along with Victorian Sponge Cake, a large array of confections, Yorkshire Pudding and a large selection of unique cheddar and Stilton cheeses.
