If you’ve ever been to a grocery store and picked up produce, you’ve more than likely opened a package or two and found yourself stuck with rubbery carrots, bruised apples or melon that was either mushy or hard as a rock. Fruits and vegetables that disappoint once you get them home may have something to do with the fact that, it’s not coming from the right sourced marketplaces. We understand that you have several local grocery stores to choose from, and our goal is to provide the local experience recommendations in the greater Boca Raton area.
4th Generation Organic Market & Cafe
In 2009 the Litowich family opened its first retail store, 4th Generation Organic Market & Café in East Boca. Ashley, Ben’s daughter is the true inspiration for the store. Ashley, a fourth generation Litowich, worked at a local juice bar for some time and then with her incredible passion, she and her father, Ben, decided to open, not just a juice bar, but a very special place, beyond all other stores of its kind. With great effort and good fortune, many quality and wonderful people joined the family of 4th Generation. Thankfully, the store’s General Manager is Richard Lewis, who brings tremendous knowledge and experience to the company. Fourth Generation Market and Café offers the very best of organic groceries, prepared foods, produce, and much more. The store is completely driven to be the best in every way and the customer response is tremendous.

Jimmy C’s Italian Market & Deli
Growing up in a big Italian family traditions were very important to their dad. He loved his family very much and adored their moms cooking. Every Sunday he woke up to the aroma of her cooking “Gravy” (yes they are from Brooklyn that’s what they call it) and they all gathered for dinner. They were always together for holidays, celebrations and parties, and their mom always did the cooking.
It is with great pride that these family recipes have been handed down to them. So in honor of their dad, Jimmy C’s Italian Deli & Market was born.

Gourmetphile is a little slice of Europe in Boca. You won’t find most of our wines and foods at a big box store, and many items aren’t even in retail elsewhere. It’s a highly curated store – we taste over 50 bottles for every one we bring in, and most of our foods have won major awards. Since our opening 2016 we have become a nexus for the wine and foodie community in Boca. Our Sommelier hosts weekly limited seating wine tastings with gourmet food pairings, as well as BYOB events for connoisseurs, and we host private tastings as well. We have a menu of the finest cheese and charcuterie and other delectables and you can drink a bottle in our tasting room or patio with no restaurant markup.

Living Green Fresh Market
100% made by hand, in house, daily. We use Free range meats, no antibiotics & no Hormones. All our fish is wild caught and everything is made by us. Unlike bigger retailers where all the “freshly prepared foods” are bought from a third party company across the country. Our ingredient list is pure & simple. No more than 3-5 ingredients in each recipe in comparison to 10 to 30 ingredients, preservatives, coloring and enhancers found in other retailers. We know where products are grown and harvested during the different seasons. This allows us to source better products at more affordable prices which is then passed on to you. Our coffee, fresh juices, wine & beer are ready to serve!

The Gourmet Market
During our first visit to South Florida, we were disappointed to find a lack of authenticity and variety on the market. Not surprisingly as most of the French brands sold in the US are mass-market, compromising quality for price.
Through our newly inaugurated Gourmet Market, we aim to bring you a curated selection of artisan products that do justice to the time-tested French tradition of gastronomy. Bienvenue!
