Melbourne area: Best grocers, specialty markets

Neely_Ohara | Oct 21, 2007 08:12 AM

Hi everyone -- we are planning to move from LA to Melbourne Beach area sometime early next year.

I've been doing a lot of research online, and I've been to the area several times, so I already know it's going to be a change from LA, but we're ready for it!!!

Question: There seem to be some specialty markets in the area. I saw the Web site for Green Turtle, which looked interesting, and I noticed there seem to be a lot of Asian markets in town, which surprised me....

Also -- which "mainstream grocery store" is the best? I've been to several Publix in Florida, and I see that quality can vary greatly. Which is the best in the Melbourne area? By "best," I mean selection of produce, unusual foods, bakery, service deli, cleanliness, etc.

Sad to say, we will miss our Trader Joe's!! (Those of you who have been to a TJ's will know what I mean!)

Thanks for your suggestions!
