Grocery shopping in Delray Beach / Boca Raton


We are going to stay in a house for 2 weeks in Delray Beach mid-July/early August. We have 2 small kids so unlikely to go out everynight.

What would be recommended places to do some healthy grocery shopping - eg: fresh vegetables, meat, fish...

We will have a car

There is a Whole Foods on Glades Rd which is right off 1-95. Also, Fresh Market a few miles from there.

In Delray there is an amazing market called The Boys Farmer Market and sister place, The Girls which is a pick your strawberry patch with yummy ice cream and live birds outside and Grandma's Bakery. On Military Trail off of Atlantic Ave.

Depending on where you are in Delray you could go to Whole Foods in Boca (if you're east and south) or Wellington (if you're north and west of I-95). The Wellington store will be farther away but if you're out west near the Turnpike it might be easier to get to. You can find the addresses and directions at www.wholefoodsmarket.com.

Just as a more recent update (January 2013), the Whole Foods in Boca is still great. In addition to the items I would expect at any Whole Foods, such as organic produce, vegetarian foods, pure health care products, etc., the Boca Whole Foods is enormous and has an astonishing variety of prepared food in multiple "salad bar" types of tables. Just note - this store is always busy. Allow adequate time to park and browse.

There are many choices as previous posters have explained. Also for the range of items including items for cooking, consider Publix which has many stores in the area, plus there is a new Publix which just opened on the West Atlantic road just past the Florida turnpike. Publix does carry organic and conventional items. We like Glick's Market in the Oriole Plaza which also has a Publix next door, going west on Atlantic past Jog Rd. for really fresh kosher meat, some fish, and deli. Also for fresh produce in a fun family farm setting, try Bedner's on Rt. 441 going north, then look for the Lee Rd. sign, turn left. They also have a "hay ride" to the fields for the children. I find the variety of fish, bread, cheese products, Italian speicalties, produce, real fresh squeezed OJ and ready to eat items at The Boys is the best in the area, but the parking lot is CRAZY, just warning people who are used to a normal parking experience, go early or else.

Definitely, The Boys on Military Road, North of Atlantic Ave. is a great place for fresh fruits and veggies....also a large selection of healthy cooked foods. Just beware of the carts and there is little room to get around in the store. Also I will repeat the previous posts......beware of the parking. I park in the lot next door to avoid any unpleasantries.
