A longtime favorite for produce, Don Victorio’s Market isn’t just a place to stock up on fruits and vegetables. Tucked into the back corner, just past the sensibly priced shallots and enticing mameys, the West Palm Beach produce market also offers a juice bar.
The menu does not go on for pages, nor does it require the latest health magazine glossary to navigate the offerings. There are smoothies: banana, papaya, strawberry, pineapple or mix-your-own. And then there is juice: red, green or mix-your-own.
Coming late to the juicing game? Don Victorio’s also offers the option of juicing your own produce. Finally, the juice stand offers wheatgrass shots.
Just like the prices of the produce, the juices don’t demand too much of your hard-earned money — smoothies start at $2 for a small banana or papaya smoothie (add fifty cents for milk). The juice costs $3.50 for a small and $7 for a large, though organic costs more.
It’s not fancy, but it’s fresh. Juiced while you do your shopping, your juice order is waiting for you at the end.
The red juice is made with beets, carrots, apples and ginger — a perfect teeth-stainer if there ever was one. The green is made with celery, kale, cucumber and green apple.
