This week’s SHOUT OUT goes out to our local frutería or fruit store on the port side of town. Tucked away on Ave Niños Heroes this little store is easy to miss, but don’t. This small space is packed with some of the tastiest fruits and vegetables you will ever have.
The always friendly Alexis and his aunt Bricis and Enrique restock their shop daily with fresh fruits and vegetables. But the real treat is their fresh squeezed juices. You can choose from orange, grapefruit, green, carrot or beet with carrot, all at a very reasonable price.

Plus they have an excellent selection of aguas de frutas (fruit waters) in orange, oatmeal, watermelon, lime, pineapple, mango, passion fruit, guava or jamaica (hibiscus, a local flower).
Local Tip: For great guacamole just ask Bricis, she is the best at picking out avocados! Tell her if you want them for “hoy” or “mañana”
In the mornings they offer precut fruit for breakfast.
Local Tip: If you don’t see what you are looking for ask. Many items are hidden away
They also carry a selection of dried peppers. Plus they have fresh eggs, spices and well, you just never know what you will find.
This store is so small that if you blink you will miss it, but it is big on selection. Located on Ave Niños Heroes, close to the lavandería (laundry) and across from the restaurant Puerto Verde. The frutería is open from 6:00 am to 4:00 pm Monday through Saturday.
