A drive down south will take you to Miami's iconic fruit stand: Robert Is Here is a family-owned shop that features local veggies, exotic fruits and outstanding milkshakes.
From mango to papayas and all the juicy flavors in between, Robert Is Here has survived for 60 years, earning their spot as a locals favorite road stop. The fruit stand offers dozens of exotic fruits and vegetables, and the most insane milkshake combinations you will ever taste.
This is not your typical fruit stand corner. Here you will discover a backyard with exotic birds, an animal farm and even a rainbow eucalyptus tree.
Over the years, this place has become a tourist attraction, bringing city dwellers and other tourists from around the world to see what the hype is all about. The fruit stand has live music on weekends and holidays, and enough tractors for the perfect photo prop.
Children can feed the animals at the animal farm which include goats, cows, pigs, and emus. There is also a fish pond with giant koi fish and turtles, and a new aviary for bird lovers. You can sign up here for a group and field trip.
It is about a 40-minute drive south from Miami but the commute is worth the roadside attraction. Most people visit this place for a sip of their natural milkshakes. All milkshakes are made with fresh milk and fruits with no artificial ingredients, preservatives or colorings. Smoothies are also available for people with a lactose allergy. Milkshakes start at $6.64 and you match up to three flavors.
Here you will find the freshest of fruits including carambola, tamarind, sugar apples, sapodilla, Spanish limes, monstera deliciosa, papaya, miracle fruit, lychee, mangoes, kumquat, and more. The fruit stand is open seven days a week from 8 am to 7 pm.
Robert Is Here is located at 19200 SW 344th St, Homestead, FL 33034.
