Most trips I make from Jupiter south include a stop at Pop’s Fish Market in Deerfield Beach.  Other than visiting a fishing boat back from an outing, it’s just about the best place to go for fresh seafood in Broward and Palm Beach counties.

Owned by John and Sandra Adeimy, Pop's is always busy, even during summer months when other seafood marts nearly cry for business.  I’m not comfortable buying a piece of fish from a place with no traffic; it’s too expensive to throw down the disposal if it doesn’t taste right. Pop’s prices are more than fair – sometimes a few dollars a pound lower than other markets.
There’s more to this shop than fresh-out-of-the-water fish. Pop’s also sells house made desserts  - pies, puddings and more  -  and their own potato, macaroni and slaw salads.  They also cook up some great conch chowder and other seafood soups.  Some fresh vegetables, and a small selection of wines, round out the offerings.

Most wouldn’t have Pop’s on their lunch radars but should. A few tables - two or three - are available to enjoy one of the daily specials, fresh fish of one’s choice prepared simply or one of their signature soups - all a seafood lover’s delight. No ambiance here, just great seafood.

Pops is wonderful. All their fish is fresh and wonderful. The staff is friendly and helpful and I would love to have their key lime pie recipe. It's the best too!
