Known throughout southern Florida as the Sample Road Flea Market, this marketplace attracts over 4 million visitors a year to over 500 individual shops, a spa, and a large farmer's market adjacent the main building. Offering discounted prices on most everything, the selection of privately rented kiosks shoe and clothing stores, cosmetics and perfume ( at least 8 of these ), jewelry stores, furniture stores, and an assortment of boutiques. One large store sells discounted and rip-off golf equipment. There is also a large international fast food court.
It is difficult indeed to leave the Sample Road flea market without buying a great deal more than originally intended. For more expensive items, check multiple kiosks as prices vary at these individually managed stores.
King's is a fairly large market offering organic and gourmet items and produce at a reasonable price considering. They have fruits and vegetables, as well as a meat counter, dairy items and a selection of wines and other alcoholic beverages.
What to buy: Fine selection of hummus and breads.
What to pay: A little more than your average grocery store, but fairly well priced for a "gourmet" store.
My grandmother recently celebrated her 90th birthday. We had a birthday lunch for her and my aunt to be bought her a wonderful outfit from Evelyn and Arthur. My mother recently checked out the store as well and found lots to purchase (which anyone knowing my mother is rare).
What to buy: It is basically "resort clothing" - lightweight knits. Sort of like Ann Taylor for the older woman.
An upscale gourmet produce market. Picture an overgrown road side stop that is filled to the brim for gourmet cheeses, spreads, olive oils, wines and of course, produce. Here is where to stock up on coffee, candies and lots of fresh fruit. Everything is jammed into this small store. You can get a shopping cart but it is a chore to push them around. My father swears by their meat (yes, they even have a butcher). Just be aware that it is very hard to find a parking spot in the lot during peak hours.
What to buy: The have a wonderful butcher. The produce is great. And they have a decent selection of wines.
Boca's Town Center Mall has seven huge department stores, including the state's only Nordstrom as well as Bloomingdale's, Burdines, Lord & Taylor, and Saks Fifth Avenue. Add to that the hundreds of specialty shops (including William Sonoma and Sephora), an extensive food court, and a range of other restaurants, and you have the area's most comprehensive shopping center.
What to buy: One thing to note is that if you are used to shopping at the big department store up North, you may be disappointed with these store in Boca. First, they carry a much more limited selection, and second they cater to an older audience who only wears summer clothes. In other words, if you are looking for a rain coat with a zip out lining (like my mom), forget about finding it here.
