Grass Roots Natural Market in the Riverside section of the city is a brother-owned answer to finding natural, organic and fresh produce and naturally-sourced goods in Jacksonville.

With brick walls, exposed metal beams overhead, an open airy produce market, a smoothie bar and well-stocked shelves, Grassroots Natural Market is as much a pleasure to shop in as the products themselves are to eat.

With its checkered tiled floor, glass counter and overhead chalkboard menu, Pinegrove Market & Deli is a local institution serving up deli food for over 40 years. This modest space is known primarily for their burgers, which are fresh-ground directly from the butcher, while steaks are dry-aged in-house for quality that rivals top steakhouses. Pinegrove also offers Cuban sandwiches, reubens, New York pastrami and a touch of Middle Eastern flavors, from tabbouleh to hummus. Portions often feed two or three, or make excellent leftovers for a next-day feast. With indoor and outdoor seating, the only thing that gives away their greatness is the amount of cars in the parking lot.

The Gourmet Grouper was born out of a fruitful business partnership between veteran seafood-market owners John Shuler and Jason Arteaga, along with Christina Monas. The three set out to create a curated supermarket utterly unlike mega-groceries—one that could provide shoppers with a tailored selection of high-quality meats, seafood, and drinks from both distant climes and local markets. "We wanted to build a grocery store that we would like to shop at," John told the Beaches Leader. Along with his childhood friend and business partner, Jason, he procures gourmet goods from his network of local and worldwide farmers, fishers, and food artisans. The result is a smorgasbord of upscale groceries that tempt shoppers with fine cheeses, dry-aged Montana beef, Gulf stone crabs, and Louisiana crawfish. The goods are ideal for planning an elegant dinner party. Seasonal potatoes and vegetables can accompany lobster tails or Chilean sea-bass filets alongside craft beers and fine wines. The market even has artisanal snacking covered with gourmet pickles crafted by local picklesmith Tim Baker, who locks the fresh veggies' flavor into delicious stasis with careful brining and mild witchcraft.
For 35 years, downtown Gainesville's Wine and Cheese Gallery has held court in a quaint white wood house that INsite Gainesville writer Jennifer Coleman calls "reminiscent of a classic French bistro.? Owners Bunky Mastin and Wade Tyler curate a larder with more than 3,000 varieties of wine, an international selection of cheeses, rich chocolates, and gourmet lunch items served on the charming patio bistro or inside at Panache, the shop?s restaurant.
Panache's chefs pull from the Gallery?s stock to harmoniously blend flavors in sandwiches such as The Normandy, which combines brie, apples, and cinnamon on french bread and is garnished with a miniature beret, and the turkey and havarti, which is balanced by an Adriatic fig spread. Patrons can also nibble on the quiche du jour or hide their faces from exes in soups that vary depending on the whims of the chef, with one recent creation involving sage matzo balls in the affairs of a ginger-chicken broth.
