Good place to buy local food products in San Antonio - Central Market?

I'm looking for somewhere to buy local food products that I can bring back to California. I'm thinking of ready-to-use products (including snacks and fruit), not ingredients, by the way. Is Central Market a good place? Anywhere else (easy to reach from the River Walk, or by car en route from San Antonio to Austin)?

    Central Market is awesome, a destination in it's own right. For local products, consider one of the farmer's markets. Saturdays at the Pearl, Sundays at The Quarry.

      I think we'll be there on Saturday, so it sounds like a perfect excuse to explore the Pearl. Thanks!

        Great restaurants there by the way. La Gloria, Il Sogno, Nao, the Culinary Institute bakery, Sandbar, some new BBQ place. Avoid Boilerhouse though, have heard bad things.
