Where to buy tropical fruits in/near Homestead, FL?
« on: May 26, 2019, 04:36:32 PM »
I'm going to be making a whirlwind tour of Homestead shortly. Definitely going to spend a good chunk of time at Fruit 'n Spice Park.

While in the area, I want to buy some tropical fruits, especially jackfruit. Basically, I want to get some of whatever kinds of fruit are currently in season.

In the early 2000s, there were lots of fruit stands on Krome Ave selling all kinds of tropical fruit for very reasonable prices. Last time I was there a few years ago, the fruit stands on Krome seemed to have mostly disappeared.

I know about Robert Is Here, but they cater to the tourist market, with very high prices.

Any good places in the area that sell a range of locally-grown tropical fruits for reasonable prices?

They have a fruit stand at a farmers market every Saturday. It may be listed on their website or just email them.

I'll look into where the Miami Fruit folks do their Saturday farmers market sales, thanks!
