There will be even less excuse to buy tasteless, rock-hard tomatoes and sad, wilted greens with the debut early next year of Boca’s second Fresh Market, set to go into the Park Place development on North Military Trail just past Yamato Road.

The Boca market will be the 43rd in Florida for the North Carolina-based upscale grocer, known for its extensive array of prepared foods and fresh produce, and variety of “gourmet” food products. Even better, the other Boca Fresh Market, on West Camino Real, is the only local market I know of where on occasion you can find frozen turducken, the delightfully over-the-top chicken-stuffed-in-a-duck-stuffed-in-a-turkey concoction made famous by John Madden.
