Create an itinerary including Robert Is Here
Come and meet the namesake of Robert Is Here--the grown-up version of the young boy who started this roadside fruit stand at only six years old. The fresh produce stand has grown with the man, from just selling cucumbers to a one-stop shop for all your fruit and veggie needs. You'll find the typical flavors of oranges and mangoes complemented by exotic tropical fruits you've probably never heard of, such as canistel and jackfruit. Be sure to try a fresh fruit milkshake (a favorite is key lime) or take home some jam and preserves. Our Homestead day trip planning site makes visiting Robert Is Here and other Homestead attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • This place is great. We had Robert himself help us. He picked out a bunch of amazing tasting fruit for us. Just go in, look for him and ask him what is good. He will set you up!

  • Great place to buy fresh fruits and vegetables. Love the variety. I love that they will cut up anything you'd like. They help making a fruit salad. Great people. So helpful. Robert has a good family. He has wonderful children. Loving place. Tip it gets packed on the weekends. If at all possible try during the week. Better shopping moving around. YOU'LL love it.
  • If you are looking for the best natural smoothies you should go to this place. You can easily spend hours there. Excellent variety of sauces, fruits, vegetables and ALL 100% Natural! They also have beautiful animals in the back that you can pet and give food. The best part…. Robert it is there. I had the pleasure to say Hi to him since he was helping his staff. 20/10
  • This place is awesome, when I first got here I was thinking to myself it is a overpriced fruit stand. But man was I wrong, it’s a whole experience. The fruit is absolutely top-notch. And they’ve got stuff there I’ve never heard of. They cut it up for you if you request it and you can eat it outback while watching the animals. It’s such a cool location. I highly recommend coming here and trying all the fresh fruit that they have. It’s absolutely delicious. I am their biggest fan.
  • What a great experience. Lots of variety of jams, butters, fruits and many other great items. The people at the front counter especially the man that helped us was super duper friendly his name was Robert Jr. So glad we stopped. We got to test taste some mango that was the best mango I have ever eaten. Makes me want to move to Florida. I might just buy a property right next door to them.
  • First, the amazing things about Robert is Here...the fruit and veggies are fresh and beautiful and the shakes are everything delicious. The little zoo out back is so much fun! You can buy lettuce, usually at a discounted price if you're buying the cheaper, prepackaged romaine to feed the animals. Then you just kind of make your way along the fence and feed the goats and other fun little farm animals. They all look beautifully cared for, healthy and happy. The owner is typically working at a register, which is totally neat to see that he is so hands on and involved. It is absolutely a must do thing if you have an hour or two to spare and are in the area. As for the not so great things...the line for the shakes gets really long and you end up crowding in a small space with 30 other people waiting for their order. Then, there is a little play area outside that has a couple of picnic tables and some toys for kids, like the little plastic houses. It's REALLY run down, has standing water in the middle of what used to be an area that the kids could run around and play in and the toys/houses are yucky dirty. This little spot has SO much potential but it's wasted. A few bucks and they could make it great again. I used to love letting my kids run around but I took my granddaughter last weekend and was a bit grossed out...and I was embarrassed to show any of the pictures to anyone because she was standing in a playhouse that was filled with dirt.
