Central Market's official byline is "slow food, good served." Located in heart of historic downtown Petaluma adjacent to the Petaluma River, owner, chef, and wine maker Tony Najiola serves mostly Mediterranean dishes that vary constantly with the seasons. Najiola specializes in local, sustainable foods and his dishes often come out hot from a wood-burning oven or fresh from his oyster bar. Central Market hosts special events throughout the year, such as The Rivertown Revival Benefit. Central Market also features a lengthy wine list highlighting local wineries and allows customers to make reservations online using their website.
