Joseph's Classic Market
Boca Raton, FL 33486
New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description
With its tidy floors, artfully arranged produce displays, and shelves stocked with products lined perfectly shoulder to shoulder, Joseph's Classic Market – part of a small chain of three – is as neat as a pin. Stalk the aisles and find potted herbs, tables of baked goods (babka, fruit breads, cookies), a display case filled with row after row of cookies, chocolate-covered strawberries, and cannoli, seafood, meats, and packaged foods from Italy and beyond. Wander the perimeter and as you pass the deli section, you might overhear a cook with a thick New York accent chastising an underling for offering to microwave a customer’s sandwich: “You’re gonna ruin the food I just made?” Don’t be put off by the outwardly Boca vibe – the selection of prepared foods is worth sidestepping any oncoming Jaguars in the parking lot.
