Central Market Heats Things Up at 22nd Annual Hatch Chile Fest

Aug 14, 2017 08:02AM ● Published by Audrey Sellers

Central Market turns up the heat this August with the 22nd annual Hatch Chile Festival. Through August 22, Central Market stores across the state will celebrate the world-famous green chile pepper fresh from Hatch, New Mexico, with in-store events, cooking classes, products, recipes and more. 

Whether they’re stuffed, sautéed or fire-roasted, flavor-packed peppers give any dish a signature punch, and Central Market will show off its amazing versatility. Hatch chiles get their name from the village of Hatch, New Mexico, where they’re harvested 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 Texas. 

More than 330,000 pounds of Hatch peppers will make their way to the nine Central Market stores across Texas, including the Southlake location. With more than 100 years of combined roasting experience, shoppers are guaranteed to get the best roasted peppers outside of Hatch!
