***** The Boys Farmers Market.

Jeff Eats first “reviewed” The Boys Farmers Market on 5/6/2009.

That review is reprinted below.

It is now some 5 1/2 years later- and I just wanted to tell -new as well as old- Jeff Eats’ readers that I LOVE this joint-and if you live or work anywhere-near The Boys Farmers Market make it your business to shop there…trust me, you will be thrilled that you did!

***** The Boys Farmers Market, 14378 Military Trail, Delray Beach, Florida 33484 (561) 496-8123.

If you can “handle” its parking-lot…with senior citizens “backing in and backing out” non-stop…The Boys Farmers Market is an absolutely great place to shop for fruits, fresh squeezed juices, vegetables, baked goods, cheeses, wines, candies, seafood, meats, coffees and prepared chicken/seafood/meat dishes.

Just guessing here, but The Boys’ probably has something like 30,000 square feet of indoor space jammed with top quality FOOD. All the free samples that you’d like…and everything sold, runs circles around joints like Publix, Winn Dixie and Albertsons, not to mention-probably cheaper.

My family has been shopping at The Boys Farmers Market for years…and I have been amazed by two things…namely, that we have never been involved in a fender-bender in its parking lot & the great stuff that it sells.

The Boys has its own bakery, squeezes its own juices and prepares its own “take out” food. This joint is an absolute-winner. If you live in the Delray Beach area, you probably already know about The Boys…for those of you who don’t, you got to go shopping there…just be careful in the parking lot.

The Boys Farmers Market is open 7 days a week.

    Jeff
    The Boys is a fabulous market. Great selection. Cheap prices. I’m in there once a week.

  2. Geller says...

    I’ve lived in Boca for over 40 years.
    Haven’t found a better market anywhere in the state.

  3. Shelly H says...

    Jeff, we moved to Florida in 1992 when the Boys had a tent on Linton Blvd. West of Jog Road. I had been a steady customer since until about 2 months ago after what my wife and I both felt were a strong drop off in quality. Haven’t found anything to replace them but our last two outings especially made us very unhappy.

      Shelly H:

      Just had a chance to read your comments.

      Jeff Eats last visit to The Boys was about 2 hours ago…from what I saw everything was very strong, the joint was mobbed and the parking lot was as dangerous as ever.

      Thanks for reading…

  4. PC says...

    Ahh The Boys. It’s the best and the worst all wrapped up into one.

  5. Mr. Greene says...

    The Boys is the best.
    Can’t think of a better market.

  6. TURNER says...

    Nobody comes close to beating The Boys.
    Great market.

  7. Nonna says...

    Best prices on fresh squeezed juices.

  8. steven says...

    I like the boys market, the only problem is when its so crowded you cant move about and all it takes I one person with a wagon to stop and talk or stare and there is no way around. so how do they pass fire laws , if something serious happened you’ll never get out or be trampled in the process. I guess they contribute a lot of money to police and fire marshals.

  9. Alex W says...

    Fruits, vegetables, juices definitely the best.
    Its prepared foods and bakery just passable.

  10. Their fruits can’t be beat.

  11. Zebra lad says...

    Was there this afternoon around 4:15.
    Jammed.
    Nobody has better fruits and vegetables.

  12. Judy G. says...

    Jeff,
    New to the area. Just moved into Valencia Cove a month or so ago. A bit of a drive but The Boys is worth the trip. Thanks for the recommendation.

  13. AdamR says...

    Visiting from New Orleans.
    Stumbled onto your site and found The Boys.
    Wow!
    What a great store.
    Bought all kinds of cakes and pastries for my relatives who live in Boca’s Broken Sound Country Club.

  16. KSR says...

    Went this morning at 8:30am.
    Wasn’t jammed but plenty of people there for a store that had just opened for the day.
    Bought fresh orange, grapefruit and tangerine juice. Can’t beat The Boys prices.

  17. Anne W says...

    Bought a large watermelon for $4.99 at The Boys. Same melon at Publix is going for $8.99. You can go to Publix for your fruits and vegetables, I’ll get double for the same money at The Boys and it’s better stuff.

    Jeff,
    Based on meeting you last week and your recommendation my wife and I tried Boys yesterday. Great market with terrific products and prices. Parking was a bit dicey but your heads up on that as well helped a lot.
    Great find.
    Thank you very much.

  42. Lou Y says...

    Why anyone who lives in the area would go anywhere else for their fruits, juices, vegetables and baked goods is beyond me.

  43. Sue2184 says...
