Readers' Choice: What's the Best Grocery Store in Town?

There are several grocery stores to choose from in Wayne.

For this week’s Readers’ Choice we’re asking residents what their favorite grocery store is.

There are a few grocery stores in Wayne, each with its own style and selection of items offered.

A&P and Shop Rite are traditional, mass-market grocery stores. They each feature a deli and bakery.

Trader Joe’s offers a large selection of the company’s own name-brand items. There is an assortment of gourmet, organic, fair-trade, vegetarian, frozen, and imported foods. There are also a section of hygiene products, including some all-natural varieties.

Corrado’s is one of several family-owned markets. The store features aisles of traditional grocery items along with a large selection of fresh produce, fish, meat, and bakery items.

Voting ends at 9 a.m. Friday.

Starting this week, votes will not be the only factor used in determining a Readers’ Choice winner. 

The business with the most verified votes will receive 10 points, the business with the second most verified votes will receive eight, and the business with the third most verified votes will receive six.

Users may also rate a business in the applicable Patch Places directory listing (ratings are based on a five-star scale and you must be a registered user in order to rate a business). The business with the best rating will receive 10 points, the business with the second best rating will receive eight points, and the business with the third best rating will receive six points.

Points will be added up when voting concludes. The establishment with the most number of points received from the two factors will be declared the winner.

I haven't been back to Corrado's in months - sick of having to return rotting produce within 2 days, and stinky fish/meat after a couple days... I don't really do the Trader Joe's circuit, although when I pop in there, I find some interesting items, A&P needs a serious renovation, so that leaves Shop Rite, which is not bad for the money. I will only go to the Farmers Market on 46, behind Nissan - they have the widest selection and I NEVER have a problem with their produce (and my New Years resolution is lots of fruits and veggies - and I've been sticking to it!!) I like Jack's Foodtown on 23, but yes, it is much too compact - too bad they can't take over the A&P on Valley Road. So, my vote is for ShopRite!

Corrado's hands down. I never had a problem with anything there. Always friendly and professional staff. Products are always fresh and they are different then a chain supermarket.

Thanks to all of the people who vote for Corrado's! We have very loyal customers and great products. That is why our 3rd generation family business has been in business for over 60 years. We love being in Wayne. I have been a Wayne resident for 21 years and I feel like I know each customer that comes through the door. I feel we try to set ourselves apart from being a typical supermarket by carrying hard to find products, gourmet catering, store made delicacies and outstanding customer service. Again, thanks to all of our customers for making our business a successful hometown specialty market.

@ Frank Corrado, I love your stores and have been going to all your locations, including the one on Railroad Ave in Paterson (when your grandparents ran this location) since I was a child. As a matter of fact, when I was pregnant with my first child and yearned for watermelon in January, it was Corrado's who came through for me, not the chain supermarkets. I appreciate the Wayne location and will never forget the kindness of your family to a pregnant woman who craved watermelon in January.
