Joseph’s Classic Market (Boca Raton, Palm Beach Gardens & Royal Palm Beach)
***** Joseph’s Classic Market, 5250 Town Center Circle, Boca Raton, Florida 33486 (561) 347-2314.
Unitl yesterday, I had never heard of Joseph’s Classic Market…anyway, this “upscale” food-market has three locations…Boca Raton, Palm Beach Gardens and Royal Palm Beach.
Today, I gave the Boca Raton location a “shot”…the joint has 9,200 square feet and opened on June 11, 2009.
I gotta tell you, that this Joseph’s joint is terrific…fruits/vegetables, baked goods, prepared foods, meat-seafood counters, pizza/sub counter, fresh juices, wines, salad bar…it even has outdoor seating for those who want to eat right-then-and-there.
At this point of the discussion, I would suggest that you check Joseph’s website at www.josephsclassicmarket.com for locations/menu. The store is neat and clean… the food is beautifully presented…the staff is sharp…and amazingly, the prices are neighborhood supermarket prices…a pound of chicken salad runs $7.99…a whole roast chicken goes for $5.99…a quart of fresh squeezed grapefruit juice $2.50.
Take it from this born and bred Bohack and Waldbaums’ boy…you will be impressed with Joseph’s Classic Market. The food in this joint “looks” absolutely incredible…a sampling of roast chicken, pizza, chicken salad, tuna salad, bbq ribs… all delicious. The breads,pastries and cakes are made-in-house…and the “prepared food” (heavy on the Italian stuff) will have you drooling on the display cases.
The joint is open Monday-Saturday 8am-8pm and Sunday 8am-6pm.
Jeff Eats: I am involved in the commercial real estate market. I am extremely familar with Joseph’s operation and you are correct that it is an extremely well run operation. The food is very well priced and the selection/quality is top-notch. This is a winning combination. Right now there are three locations. This concept has legs and I expect many more Joseph’s to open in South Florida. For those of your readers who don’t know the concept, think Whole Foods, but smaller and more selective in what is sold.
The other day I pickedup a london broil dinner which included 2 sides. The food is very good and cost about $13.
wasnt all that impressed with joseph’s. whole foods has much better selection in every dept.
Enjoyed a terrific chicken salad sub at Joseph’s this pm. Wonderful selection of food.
Great specialty store. Excellent prepared foods and sandwiches. Great selection of cakes and cookies and breads. Very fair prices.
Wow!!!That’s all I can say about this store. Wonderful selection of prepared foods, meats, and breads, cakes, pastries. This place runs circles around Doris’ Market and Whole Foods. The prices are extremely fair.
Stopped by Boca store for lunch outside. hade a meatball calzone which was as good as the best Boca pizzeria makes. Great Concept.
Shopped at Joseph’s, excellent selection of prepared food, sandwiches, pizzas, breads, cakes. Pricese were incredible reasonable ulike Whole Foods.
great food selection at real good prices
First time at Boca’s Joseph’s last night. They have a great selection of take home food. Tried the london broil and calzone, delicious. Great looking, clean store. Very fair prices.
Finally got a chance last night to get over to Jospeh’s in Boca. Amazingly good chicken salad $5.99 lb and crusty hero breads fresh out of the oven. Great selection of Italian dishes, meats, seafood, chicken. Reasonable prices.
wonderful prepared food and priced very fairly.
The food is fresh..everything. The prices are good especially the weekly specials. The help couldn’t be nicer. I go there every week to do my shopping and can’t leave without the bread. I am Italian and I know good Italian food..They are the very best in this whole area and I have tried the ones mentioned in the article. One problem..parking in season. That is not good.
Joseph’s has a great bakery/bread department.
Very hard to decide what to buy everything looks so good.
picked up brisket the other night and it wasn’t very good.
Go there in the summer and its a totally different place. Much nicer ! The deli stuff is terrible…( grape leaves, sun dried tomatoes, wild rice salad) the cold cuts sliced thick as cardboard no matter how many times I ask for very thin… once the sea food was good, but twice more it wasn’t. The bakery ladies are all talking to each other and you can’t get anyone to wait on you. ALL bread and bakery items very high priced..Doris a better deal. Their boneless sirloin steak tough but their sirloin ground and sausage the best… but the casing on the sausage is very chewey & tough. Manager get on the ball. Very crowded in season and not the same service.. very big turnover of help too.
A much more pleasant shopping experience than Whole Foods. The parking at Whole Foods is miserable. The food at Joseph”s generally better than Doris but not by too much.
I WENT TO YOUR PALM BEACH GARDENS STORE AND FOUND IT CLOSED. WHERE ARE YOU?
boca store is terrific.
Love Joseph’s, have no problem at the deli getting the meat sliced the way we like – ask for samples until they get it right. Love there Italian chicken Sausage. Maybe you should try the store in Royal Palm or Palm Beach Gardens if you think the prices are high in Boca. Agree – much better that Whole foods. Very crowded during season – lots of parking a t the new location at the corner of Military Trail at the old Albertson’s.
I shop at Joseph’s in Boca all of the time. The meats and fish and prepared foods are terrific. They are better than Whole Foods, The Boys, Publics and Costco’s and the prices are very reasonable. The fruit dept isnt all that strong but the rest including the baked goods are excellent. Try Joesph’s I am sure you won’t be dispappointed.
joseph’s is terrific.
they have a great chicken salad and their terayki wings are sensational.
i also love their roast whole chicken.
dont waste time at costco getting roast chicken, this is much better and roughly same price.
Love this market. Top notch prepared foods. Same on seafood and meats.
Terrific prepared foods and baked goods.
one of the best for prepared foods.
I’d match their roast chicken with anyone’s.
Have to agree with you, delicious roast chicken.
Picked up a pizza and ricotta cheese calzone last night. As good as an pizzeria in the area.
Also did alittle food shopping getting fresh oranage and grapefruit juice, milk, and a baked apple pie.
Very good store.
love shopping here at your store in Boca store,
what are the weekly specials, love to read that also..thanks
They make a very good whole roasted chicken. Get there early in Boca because they sell out very fast.

Please put me on your email list for offers and current sales. Mom and I love your market (we go to the one in Boca). It’s like the Disneyworld of food! There are always interesting things to try and if I have trouble finding a certain ingredient for a recipe, I know I can find it at Joseph’s! Keep up the good work!
Best prepared foods in Boca all at a very reasonable price.
