In celebration of Women’s History Month, Dallas, Texas-based Central Market will spotlight a collection of products from female-owned companies. These items will be showcased at all Central Market locations throughout Women’s History Month, running March 2-29.
Central Market’s offerings include everything from wines and gourmet chocolates to meats and grocery items from female-owned companies.
This celebration is a part of Central Market’s “Be the Change” initiative, which pledges to advance quality and inclusion across Texas. It provides tools and support for Central Market Partners, suppliers and community allies. To amplify diverse voices, Central Market is proudly sharing these stories and highlighting their products as well as services.
A few Women’s History Month highlights include:
- Carman Ranch Grass Fed Beef: Founded by Cory Carman, a fourth-generation rancher, Carman Ranch focuses on regenerative agriculture practices by raising grass-fed beef in a holistic way that benefits the land and the cattle without the use of antibiotics or hormones. Featured products include beef jerky, beef summer sausage and beef hot dogs.
- Nana Joe’s: Nana Joe’s was founded by Michelle Pusateri with the goal of bringing natural, whole food granola back to grocery store shelves.
- Scout Seafood: Seafood had been a part of Chef Charlotte Langley’s entire life and after discovering a 100-year-old canning machine in her friend’s attic, Chef Charlotte was inspired to revive the tradition. With a network of small-scale and sustainable fisheries, local to Canada and the U.S., Scout Seafood delivers the finest craft canned seafood rooted in protecting ocean health.
- Kinship Milk Tea: Caitlyn Cash, founder of Kinship, fell in love with milk tea while working in Southeast Asia. Upon returning home to Austin, Texas, Caitlyn developed her own recipe and in 2019 launched Kinship Milk Teas.
- Coco Andre: A Mexican-American, woman-owned and -operated chocolate shop in Oak Cliff, Texas. Founded by mother-daughter duo Andrea and Cindy Pedraza, Coco Andre products include its creative Texas and Mexican Heritage-themed chocolates, including their Día de Muertos chocolate skulls and chocolate cowboy boots.
- Sticky Toffee Pudding Company: In 2004, Tracy Wilkinson Claros moved from Kendal, England to Austin, Texas. Starting with nothing more than a folding table at a local farmer’s market, she introduced artisan British puddings. These desserts are baked in small batches using traditional ingredients.
- Farmstrong and Onward Wines: After purchasing her first grapes in 2009 from a Mendocino grower, Faith Armstrong launched her own brand. Seeking a name for her wine allowed her to pay homage to her unusual childhood by choosing the name of the little boat she went to school in every day. The name and the label represent the essential philosophy of Faith’s winemaking which is passion, care, connection and respect for the environment. Featured wines include Farmstrong Field Rosé and Onward Chardonnay.
Central Market will also feature a lineup of cooking classes led by female chefs throughout the month.
