It's been a while, but I returned to the City Supermarket at Fair Ridge in Fairview, NJ in late November to check in and see how the store was doing. And to buy some really good feta (which I did). I found the store even better than it was the first time around. Unlike the previous owners of this store, these folks certainly know what they're doing. The product mix is better and more diverse, and pricing is definitely better too. Excellent perishables all around, and people are certainly noticing it -- the store was way busier than it was the last time I visited, and busier than it was when it was the previous tenant. The bakery and prepared foods departments were fully set up, and those two hadn't been set up at the time of my previous visit. The bakery has an excellent variety of store-made items and locally baked products. Outstanding baguettes, cookies, and cheesecake, if you're interested.
And, of course, fresh feta in the deli along with your choice of many selections of locally made mozzarella. But in line with the area's extremely diverse populations, the store features a wide assortment of Latin, eastern Asian, Caribbean, and Italian/Mediterranean items. City is much stronger on the international items than Kim's Key Food/SuperFresh/Freshway was, which really only had the basics of Latin products.
And the liquor store is open! Sorry for the bad picture, it's all I could grab as I was passing by. Glad to see this store looking great! Don't forget to check out what else we have here:
