A throwback to Florida’s fruit stands of old, Robert is Here started in 1959 when the shop’s namesake, then six, began selling his family’s cucumbers from a roadside table. It has since grown into an emporium of exotic fruit and vegetables—and a huge tourist attraction. Back in the day, all the produce was grown locally, and there are still workers toiling in the fields out back. But much of this stuff is now imported, which mars its authenticity. Still, the farmland setting is lovely.
