Calling all Chile fans!
Hatch chilies have arrived and the yearly Hatch Chile Festival at Central Market has started.
Get your Hatch on with Central Market this Thursday, August 9 from 5 to 8 PM as we kick off the 17th annual Hatch Chile Festival with a Hatch Happy Hour. Join Central Market in getting the hottest event of the season underway with an evening filled with fun, food, and chiles galore.

In salute of the seasonal return of the Hatch chile, we’ll officially fire up the authentic steel gas-fired roasters to roast some chiles to savory perfection. Enjoy the much-anticipated aromas and taste the savory peppers prepared in an array of samples such as Central Market red and green Hatch salsas, Native Texan Hatch bean and queso dip, Hatch tortilla chips, Hatch Monterrey Jack Cheese, Hatch Goat Cheese, in-house made Hatch Mozzarella, Hatch tortillas, Hatch loaf, Hatch corn muffins and Hatch Crema Dip made fresh in-store using Salvadorena-style sour cream.

After indulging in a variety of Hatch goodness you may get a little thirsty, but not to worry, you can wash down the fiery flavor with some Chile Beer! In addition to savory samples, a complete menu of Hatch favorites will be available (full menu below).

FESTIVAL: Hatch chiles get their name from the city of Hatch, New Mexico, where they’re harvested for only a few weeks out of the year. They aren’t grown anywhere else in the world, and connoisseurs consider them some of the finest. They’re so good that Central Market buys more Hatch chiles than any other retailer in the country! Over 250,000 lbs of Hatch peppers will be making their way to the eight Central Market stores across Texas.
