As the non-story about Hoffman’s Chocolate fades into obscurity. . . there’s a new market on Dixie Hwy.!

Just in case you missed this blog post (see below) from yesterday. . . I haven’t been to the De Vine Market as yet but apparently a lot of my blog readers have. Received several calls and emails yesterday from those who are just thrilled about this new business and I will go there some time next year, errr, next week, in 2017!

Wish everyone a wonderful New Year’s Eve and a Happy New Year. Thank You all for visiting my blog—2016 was a popular year for this blog in this little City of Lake Worth: Recently went over 2,000,000 views.

Stay positive about Lake Worth. There’s a lot to be positive about. And there’s still a lot of work to be done in 2017. Get involved. Stay involved. Try to attend a City Commission meeting or City board meeting. Attend at least one of the upcoming debates prior to the elections in March. Contact your neighborhood association and learn more about what they do. And always remember to SHOP LOCAL! too.

Wish everyone a Happy New Year,

The latest news from The Lake Worth Herald is below.

News in this week’s Herald: Stop by and meet Chip and Andrea, the owners of De Vine Marketplace here in Lake Worth.

Nestled off of Dixie Highway is a New York style farm market. De Vine Produce Marketplace is located at 318 North Dixie. The couple has lived in the area for just over ten years relocating from rural Eastern Long Island.
     Since moving to Florida they had missed the ‘farmhouse markets’ and wanted to bring a little of their past to Lake Worth.

     Enter the marketplace and the colors surround you. The arrangements of fruits and vegetables are carefully placed to please the eye. Displays of various fresh fruits, nuts, vegetables and cheeses greet customers as they peruse the aisles.
     Many of the fruits and vegetables are offered in an organic variety also. There are varieties of jellies, spices, juices, honey, and white truffle oil, to name a few. De Vine Marketplace also carries a wide variety of Latin products.
     The atmosphere is very friendly, the conversation delightful and if you have any questions about what to do, Andrea will offer ideas for fruit and vegetable pairings to delight the palate, and she is willing to explain the benefits of the various fruits and vegetables.
