NORTH MIAMI BEACH - If you've lived in northern Miami-Dade or southern Broward for any length of time, the name Laurenzo's Market has to bring a smile to your face.
This legendary Italian market has been around, serving area residents for six decades. The great selections of fresh meats, poultry and seafoods as well as the prepared items, fresh baked goods and a wine selection that is second to none.
"As a kid, my dad used to go to Laurenzo's to buy all the meats and cheeses for homemade subs," said Ricky Gordon of North Miami Beach. "The bread was always fresh and the meats were the best you could find."
David Laurenzo and his family have set standards throughout the years for providing Italian favorites that are hard to find.
