Sometimes you just want to eat something a little different. The big-box grocery stores stock everything you need for everyday meals. But what if this time you want dinner to be more than ordinary? Kitchen gurus who like to experiment often require uncommon, quality ingredients for their culinary masterpieces.

Not far from our Downtown Dallas luxury apartments are several one-of-a-kind specialty grocery stores where the service is friendly and the offerings just fine.

Jimmy’s Food Store

Jimmy’s Food Store is Dallas’s go-to Italian food market. The unassuming corner shop is chock full of all the good things everyone in your family likes to eat. From homemade sauces to spicy sausages, the DiCarlo family brings Italian tradition and authenticity to the neighborhood. The busy flow of customers through its doors is testament enough to its flavorful appeal.

Jimmy’s Food Store may seem like a small typical mom and pop grocery when you first walk in. But if you follow the crowd back toward where the mouth-watering aromas are coming from, you will see why the place is so popular. Ready-made lasagna and sandwiches are on the menu and there is no better place to get a bottle of imported Italian wine. You will be glad you stopped by this city gem.

Ann’s Health Food Center

Ann’s Health Food Center & Market has been serving the Dallas area for three generations and the community is all the better for it. The store is known for being a comprehensive source of vitamins and organic supplements with knowledgeable nutritional staff to help provide guidance. It is also the perfect destination for quality organic meats, produce, and groceries.

Ann’s Market carries a large supply of gluten-free, allergen-free, and vegan grocery items as well as pasture-raised meat and dairy. Be sure to check out the store’s frozen section where you can find sprouted grain bread and organic prepared entrees. Ann’s also has a full-service cafe on the premises featuring healthy smoothies and all your favorite sandwiches and wraps.

Cooper’s Meat Market

Cooper’s Meat Market started and thrived in San Antonio for over 20 years only recently expanding to the Dallas area. The market is a steak lover’s paradise offering the best in custom-cut premium meat. But the goodness doesn’t end there. Cooper’s Market also carries several homestyle casseroles and appetizers including green chili chicken and loaded twice-baked potatoes. You might find it hard to make up your mind.

The venue now has a steakhouse in the Dallas location in case you don’t want to do your own cooking. From gigantic burgers to melt-in-your-mouth New York strips, the food never disappoints. Cooper’s Meat Market isn’t fancy and it is not pretentious. But the consistency in quality and the friendliest of vibes will have you returning again and again.

Dallas is a fantastic city to call home. One Dallas Center offers spacious apartments in a convenient location with the best of amenities. You can contact us anytime for more information or to arrange a personal tour.
