You will enjoy great shakes with unusual flavors, fresh homemade key lime pies, and among other things you may purchase fresh fruits, vegetables, jellies and preserves (many from his mother’s recipes), and a large variety of honeys. You can observe a working bee hive, and sample honeys that came from different flower sources. I was amazed at how different these various honeys tasted. Robert is a farmer specializing in tropical fruits who has been featured on NBC’s Today Show and World News Tonight and in newspapers across the country. You will find this fruit stand as you head for the main park entrance. As you approach Florida City follow State Road 9336 to SW 344th Street, turn right through Florida City, past tomato and squash fields to "Robert Is Here" Fruit Stand. You can’t miss it as a huge sign proclaims "Robert Is Here".
What to buy: We purchased the best fresh pineapple we have ever eaten at Roberts. These pineapples came from the Caribbean (if my memory is correct they were from the Dominican Republic). These are seasonable, but if available be sure to purchase one. Robert’s will cut it for you, and you may never think of pineapple in the same way again. These are absolutely the best!! All the fresh produce we purchased at Roberts was excellent, and we stopped by here a number of times.

National parks normally have a gift shop which sells park-related souveniers - things like hats and Y-shirts, puzzles, place mats with park logos or maps, and the like.
What to buy: I didn't go into this shop which was under the restaurant, so I don't actually know what was in there.
