Scott’s Review:

Giant Farmers Market Waldwick offers farm fresh produce at reasonable prices in Bergen County.  Outside, there are some overflow produce items, some sale items, and also various plants.

Outside:

The parking lot is a little tricky (but not even close to the craziness of Interstate Plaza in Ramsey a  few miles to the north ) with various one-way lanes – and there is an exit near the liquor store where you can drive over the curb to the road if you are not careful.

Inside:

Once you finished parking in the maze of a parking lot, and stroll past any produce/plants/specials that are outside, you start the store’s maze in the produce section.  There are both organic and non-organic items.

Then, you will saunter past the sushi bar which usually has a free sample waiting for you.  Rumor has it, near closing you might be able to snag these for 50% off.  Recently, I’ve seen sushi prices here around $8.50 for generous portions.

In addition to the sushi offerings, there are deli, bakery (with a coffee bar), deli, meat and seafood counters along the back wall to complete your shopping trip.  A hot buffet food bar with soup selections is available.  Thankfully, the salad bar costs the same per pound as the hot buffet bar, so be sure to grab some protein for your salad.

Giant Farmers Market Waldwick has all of the accouterments that you would expect to find in a supermarket including a refrigerated dairy section and even fresh flower bouquets.  Most grocery items only have one or two brands to choose from but pricing is comparable.

Leaving there, you’ll have enough kale, blueberries, beets, pineapples, carrots, oranges, spinach to keep your Vitamix mixer occupied for a week!  And the fixings for salads to last all week and not pay the $6.99/ $7.99 per pound at a typical supermarket salad bar.

Finally, remember to grab a few cans of beans and corn kernels on the end-caps and look on the shelves below the produce bins for other items like coconut milk and canned items.

And now they have Bags of Ice in a freezer located at the front of the store.

I find myself stopping here a few times a week to grab ingredients for my recipes as it’s convenient and the check-out lines are quick.

They have a catering menu – just ask someone to see it.

They take Debit Cards, EBT, Cash, AMEX, Visa, Discover, and Mastercard.

Make sure to keep your receipts for returns.

    These people need more English speaking people! All the Spanish people do is just stand in a group and talk or talking on there phones and the 2 other people were the only ones that has to work and if they talked this one Spanish speaking lady will yelled at them! People get control of your cashiers! When they are dealing with a customer they don’t need to be having a Conversation with each other! Also to the lady who say you are the store manger needs a big attitude change! You don’t disrespect customers! So to the manger please put someone else in charge! Thanks

      What does which language the employees speak to each other have to do with the quality of the items for sale or their prices? I’ve been to the store at least a dozen times since being turned onto it and I’ve never ever had anything but a pleasant experience checking out. Can’t say I’ve asked anyone where something is but I guess that’s just me.
      Bottom line… the produce prices are amazing and so is the produce selection. Highly Reccomended.

      Completely agree that the cashiers are rude. God forbid if you ask them a question! The ones that don’t agree haven’t shopped there long enough.

    The store is so easy to navigate, not like the store in Oakland which is cramped. The vegetables are fresh. Going to try the meat Dept, looked good.

    I find this Market so inconvenient because of their store hours. The Market before used to close at 10pm regular days and 9pm on Sunday.
    This is the only market in our town and it’s so not helpful knowing that they close so early. Specially for people that leave work in the city and don’t get home until 8pm.
    Or for that last minute grocery shopping.
    I called today the store to speak to the owner and I was told that Mr. Lee is not there.
    I live in Waldwick and I shop a lot from this Market. If the store hours are not changing, I will personally give the business to another market which unfortunately will be in another town.

      I agree, the 8am opening is common for a store like this, but the 8pm close is a bit early, 9pm would be much more helpful. Wouldn’t hurt to have people mention this to the manager. Of course we do have 7-11 in town for last minute milk etc. that one might need.

    1) Cashiers are very friendly. If you don’t think so, check out the Oakland sister store where they are all talking to each other mainly in another language, barely look at you, start ringing up the next person before you are done, and barely ever say thank you.
    2) Fruit is iffy. If you pick carefully, it is very good and a lot cheaper. However, it does not seem to last as long as supermarket fruit in many cases. Maybe the way it is stored (remember, apples are picked once per year for example so they has to be stored perfectly)
    3) Veggies, see #2 – similar
    4) Pre-made decent. Meat, all prime. Deli very good prices without comparing to other sales.
    5) Bakery. You ever try a Zadies Melt-away or Bobka? to DIE for….
    6) Sushi, made fresh, very good, and friendly people.

    This is the short to-the-point version. I should be a supermarket critic. anyone want to hire me?

    We are here all the time, at least 3 times a week since they opened. The prices are great for produce, and not bad for grocery items. The butcher has great meat! Over the summer we purchased some awesome high quality steaks. The deli always has decent sales every week and the deli meat is fresh. The prepared food is tasty, too. The bakery has delicious bread and the pastries are delicious if a bit pricey. The cakes and pies are too expensive for me. Cashiers are always friendly.

    Is there an email that goes out with the specials or are they the same as the Oakland store?
