Jacob’s Classic Market is a full-service specialty-food store that carries an assortment of gourmet groceries, including farm-fresh produce, prime meats and poultry, fine wines, and delicious premade food items. Avoid the hustle, bustle, and rustling ghost whispers of poultry poltergeist that are par for the course at major supermarket chains, and enjoy the quaint atmosphere of Jacob’s Classic Market. Patrons can peruse a wide selection of freshly baked breads and pastries, organic and kosher products, garden-fresh fruits and vegetables, and quality meats, cut to order. In the wine cellar, Jacob’s helpful employees are available to assist you in your selection of Type A grape bloods. Visit the gourmet food bar to sample savory selections such as roasted chicken ($7.99), homemade challah bread ($3.99), homespun cheese pizza ($12.99 for 16”), or hearty made-from-scratch soups ($5.99+ for a quart). Enjoy a cup of joe from the full-service coffee bar as you stroll through this specialty market, dreaming of the increasingly tiny meals planned for your collection of Russian nesting dolls.
The Cheese Course pampers dairy devotees with more than 150 artisanal cheeses, plus a thoughtfully constructed menu of delectable comestibles. Regional trios of cheeses ($12.95) allow connoisseurs to expand their palates without undergoing primordial tongue stretching. Nibble your way through a patriotic mélange of American cheeses that includes Cypress Grove Humboldt Fog goat cheese (CA), Old Chatham camembert (NY), and Pleasant Ridge Reserve (WI), or snack on a Franco-centric sampling of Sainte-Maure, camembert, and comté. Each trio comes with accoutrements such as sliced baguettes and sundried tomato pesto, but more substantial hungers can also be halted with the help of an array of sandwiches, such as an albacore white tuna melt with gruyere ($8.45), or with the greeneried goodness of a salad, such as English field greens with blue cheese, caramelized walnuts, and mustard-shallot vinaigrette ($7.95). Breakfast items, such as herb omelette baguettes ($8.45) and homemade quiche ($8.45), are served morning, noon, and night, creating a dangerous paradox of logic in which every meal is the most important of the day.

In 1954, Gino's Italian Market's founder, Anthony Paparella, moved from the teeming fisheries of Bari to Hoboken, New Jersey, where he married a fellow Italian and worked as a builder for nearly 20 years. After retiring to South Florida in '73, Paparella brought a taste of his homeland stateside by opening a bustling bazaar filled with fresh produce, succulent meats, and sweet desserts.
The market's commitment to tradition and family can be found in all of its business practices, from its catered feasts of traditional baked pastas and rib roasts, to e-mail correspondences from the resident Nonna that contain expert advice on party planning, recipes, and optimal angles for cheek-pinching. Shoppers consult Nonna Anna and handy recipe guides to concoct rich sauces and tasty entrees from the store's bountiful selection of cheese, wine, ripe tomatoes, and imported Italian goods.
In addition to rounding out dinner plates with house-made prosciutto bread, fresh chicken, and juicy cuts of beef, Gino's graces weddings, desserts, and banquets with custom cakes and pastries.
The Seminole Hard Rock Wine & Food Festival is a new tradition—it started in 2010—but its creators hope to make it a lasting part of South Florida foodie culture. Amidst cuisine from renowned local eateries such as Tatu and Council Oak, guests can relax in several different lounges, from a spa area for women to a men's lounge with a big screen TV. The Caribbean lounge surrounds festival goers with assorted rums and tropical rubs, all cooked up by Chef Creole. Sponsors include NBC 6, Lite-FM, and the Miami Herald, and a portion of the profits will benefit the Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital Foundation.
Every morning, the butchers at Penn Dutch Food Center arrive to cut up meats and make their signature items from scratch, including cold cuts, sausages, and hot dogs. Lots of hot dogs. In fact, Penn Dutch estimates that, if placed end to end, the number of hot dogs they make in a single year could stretch all the way from Miami to Orlando and feed the entire Hall of Presidents.
Though they're labeled as all-beef, the main ingredient in Penn Dutch's hot dogs is more than three decades of experience. The family-owned-and-operated business first opened its doors in 1975 (a second location opened in 2004). Since those early days, the butchers have made names for themselves through a well-curated (and hand-cut) selection of poultry, pork, lamb, veal, and beef. They also use their own smokehouses for smoked meats, rather than relying on neighbors' chimneys, and they regularly bring in hard-to-find items such as beef sweetbreads.
Away from the butcher counter, Penn Dutch Food Center also sells fresh seafood, bakery, deli and fruits & veggies ?including seasonal varieties such as cactus pears.
