IMHO, all Central Markets can be a little pricey, and this one is no different. On the plus side, if you need it, they probably have it, even if it is kind of random. Case in point, I often go here for buckwheat because WF's bulk buckwheat is often still a little green, not the ripe brown color it's supposed to be. They've got a wide selection of bulk products ranging from herbs, spices, teas, candies, grains etc. You can easily go to town with all of their great selections and then get a surprise once you get up to the counter (I got 3 or 4 items and I'm up to $50?). Hit or miss with the staff. They're usually knowledgeable but not always super friendly. I'd honestly rather go to the farmer's market, WF or TJ.
