After your visit to the Everglades National Park in Homestead, you are not going to want to miss Robert is Here. Located not too far from the entrance to the park you will find a pretty hoppin’ fruit stand.
Yes, you read that right. A “hoppin’ fruit stand”. The Palm Beach Post refers to this fruit stand as “The Disney World of fruit stands” and after spending a few hours there with my family, I have to say I completely agree!
A Brief History of Robert is Here
Robert is Here is a family-owned fruit stand that has been around for over 50 years. In the early days, it was a young man with a desire to sell a few fruits and vegetables that has grown into a premier destination in South Florida.
A destination perfect for families, couples, or friends. You can read more about the history of Robert and his family in his biography, it is certainly going on my list of books to read!

So what makes this place so MAGICAL and why should I take a trip to Homestead to check it out?
I visited Robert is here with my family on a Saturday evening, about 5 o’clock, and here are some things I experienced, and memories made…
There were cars parked everywhere.
Live Music blasting.
Robert serving guests, answering questions.
An entire fruit stand of strangers singing happy birthday, because Robert asked us too.
There were smiles and giggles, and memories being made all around me.
Photos lined the walls of the fruit stand.
The best and most unique milkshakes I’d ever tasted being served.
A Splash Pad.
There were people collecting Memories,
not things and it was beautiful.
The Palm Beach post got it right when they compared this place to the Happiest Place on Earth. The next time you visit South Florida, take a trip down to Homestead and have a milkshake with Robert and his family, you won’t be sorry.
