Saturdays and Sundays are always sample days at Central Market, but the store’s big event weekends are always the best time to nibble and taste.

Shellfish are the source of inspiration this time around at Central Market’s Dive In event. You can try samples throughout the store on both days (and even today!), mainly between the hours of 11 a.m. and 6 p.m., but if you want to get the biggest bang for your, er, visit, head to the store around lunchtime.

Don’t miss the main demo station near the meat and seafood market where they’ll be cooking up seared scallops, crab cakes and other tasty recipes.  Over in the dairy section, be sure to try the crab meat and shrimp queso.
