Central Market where?


I think they are a division of H.E.B, so mainly in larger Texas cities; Dallas, Austin, Houston, San Antonio, Ft. Worth.

    I had a 7-Eleven in Ct for 10 years and carried Boars Head for the ham turkey and Bologna, Kohler for the roast beef and Thumans for the hot dogs. Life was good and I had the busiest deli in any 7-Eleven. Now all the sandwiches are made in a factory the night before.

      Remember when rolls and Italian bread from the local deli were always crisp? The trouble with the world today is coffee in a cardboard -- er, Styrofoam -- cup.

        Talking about supporting mom and pop store...How's Foster's market doing? I had the best store prepared shrimp cocktail from there.

          Careful. There is a company that gets quite angry with those who claim there are cups made of Styrofoam. Styrofoam is made into foam-plastic sheets, only. Those cups are not made of Styrofoam, says a guy who was on the receiving end of a threateneing letter from the company's legal representatives for referring in print to Styrofoam cups.

                  Foster's in Greenfield is doing well. Excellent produce, too. Funny, though, the produce manager, who gets such interesting foods as cardoons, culantro (not cilantro), and various exotic greens, confided in me that his wife only eats meat and potatoes.

                  They had Boar's Head for a while, but a store that also sells ambrosia salad and the like is not going to fare well with high-end deli products.

                    i go into kosher delis and get their deli meats. In my opinion so much better than anything out there.

                      thumans.. and any roast beef in jersey-- ( haha) that's where they still serve it red!!
                      out here in indiana they tend to think red is uncooked and serve it brown.... most places anyway--
                      but as far as store bought cold cuts-- thumans gets my vote! :)

                        I would like to echo the sentiments for the Black Forest Turkey and the Maple Glazed turkey. I also like the Cracked Pepper Mill Turkey. They are all so good and moist that you don't need a whole heap of condiments to make the sandwich have a little taste. Here in Florida, Boar's Head is available at all Publix supermarkets, but also at a local gourmet deli called Petty's. They are actually even cheaper than the supermarket on most items. I do look forward to getting back to Long Island where every Mom and Pop deli from Baldwin to Port Jefferson sells Boar's Head. Not every meal in NY has to be expensive!

                          Aside from their products, you have to love the red, gold and black trucks emblazened with the dismembered boar's head. Class act all the way.

                            Great minds think alike. These are some of my favorite Boar's Head varieties, especially the Blazing Buffalo Roasted Chicken Breast.

                              A fond childhood memory -- the that unique truck driving up to the butcher's.

                                For overall quality and selection Boar's Head is an excellent choice. However, I echo your opinion, for bologna and hot dog's nobody beats Thumann's! If anyone is ever in our neck of the wood's, stop by the Windmill in their original Long Branch, NJ location for one of the best grilled hot dogs going

I prefer Thumann's for hot dogs and roast beef, Dietz and Watson has excellent turkey and coldcuts, and everything from Boar's Head is excellent.

                                  Interesting, over at Chowhound.com there was a thread where some were claiming there was a monopoly of Boar's Head vastly inferior products or that the quality has marketly slipped over the years. How dare they call them "provisions?" I like them and Dietz and Watson. The very choosy, German run Delis near me both sell Boar's Head.

                                    For me, Boar's Head absolutley typified New York German delis, but that was a time when you could still buy pretzels by the pound from a tin can -- while you were voting for Miss Rheingold!

                                        chowhound has various message boards for different regions...so your chances of getting "talks mostly about..."depends on the message board you choose...

                                            It's not bitter, not sweet,
                                            it's the extra dry treat.
                                            Won't you try extra dry Rheingold Beer.

                                                        My beer is Rheingold, the dry beer.
                                                        Think of Rheingold whenever you buy beer.



                                                        It's not bitter, not sweet,
                                                        it's the extra dry treat.
                                                        Won't you try extra dry Rheingold Beer.


                                                        Bravo!

                                                        Shaeffer, is the, one beer to have, when you're having more than one, he said while making the three-ring sign to Harry and Bert Piel.



                                                        Hey, get your cold beer! Hey get your Ballantine beer!
                                                        Ballantine, Ballantine beer.

                                                        I spent one summer delivering Ballantine from the distributor in Hamden, Connecticut. I fondly remember taking along extra bottles of warm beer that I'd swap for cold ones at various delivery stops along my route. Even better was the fact that the driver's room at the warehouse had two refrigertors with bottled beer and ale and two taps for draft ale and beer.

                                                        I wonder if that's still done.
