Deluxe Foods of Aptos is located in the Deer Park Marketplace shopping center, and it’s one of the few genuinely “gourmet” markets in Santa Cruz county. They have a bakery, deli, fresh-made sushi, a healthy selection of beer and wine, and the best selection of domestic and imported craft cheeses as you’ll find anywhere in the county. For a quick take-out meal, they have a hot food bar where the menu rotates daily. They also offer a large selection of fresh fruits and vegetables, with many organic foods as well. Tired of Starbucks? They also feature a Peet’s Coffee kiosk.
Tip: they have a real butcher here! If you have a special order, call them at 831-688-8211.
