Scott’s Review:

Family owned Wolfson’s Market has just about reached landmark status and continues to operate with helpful and happy employees.  Wolfson’s is more than just a convenient store and more of a market.  Unlike the mega-supermarkets that can take you 15 minutes to pick up a gallon of milk, this enclave has everything you need seemingly within an arms reach at reasonable prices.  Their sign listing sums up what they’re about “Liquor, Wine, Beer, Grocery, Deli, Meats” But they should add catering as well.

Outside:

The address is listed as 480 Boonton Turnpike – but you can enter from either of the side streets as well.  The parking lot is a little tricky, but the spaces are clearly marked.  Near the door is the locked cage for propane tank swaps.

Inside:

You enter by passing through a small alcove that might house firewood, charcoal and large 5 gallon water cooler bottles right near the two registers where they sell cigarettes and lottery tickets.  To the right, is the refrigerated dairy case.  The deli counter is in the rear of the store.

In the rear-left of the store is the liquor section and front-left is a small produce section.  They have many kitchen gadgets above the produce section.

There are a couple of aisles of spices, & dry goods, groceries and they will most likely have what you need.

The deli counter has prepared salads, warm pre-made food and is staffed by generally smiley people.  They really pride themselves on their catering and create artistic, flavorful dishes and platters for your party or events.  They will even cook your Thanksgiving dinner too.

Scott’s Review:

Giant Farmers Market Hackensack offers farm fresh produce, meats, seafood and deli items at reasonable prices in Bergen County.  See the bottom of this article for the location of the sale items.

Outside:

The address is listed as 324 Main Street – but the parking lot is in the back on River Street.  The parking lot is a little tricky, At the time of my visit, they were under renovation.  Note, that you can enter from River Street, as well as the two side streets (East Berry and Passaic Streets).  Your best exit is on Passaic Street to which has traffic lights on the Main Street and River Street intersections.

Inside:

Once you finished parking in the maze of a parking lot, and stroll past any produce/plants/specials that are outside as you enter in the back.  Then, beyond the cash registers, you will see the deli, meat, and seafood counters.

The deli counter offers the finest Boar’s Head selections.  The meat counter is a full-fledged butcher and a lot of offerings.  And finally, the seafood counter is a mini version of a port city fish market.
