Corrado's Market in Wayne, NJ

A reader emailed us to suggest Corrado's in Wayne, NJ, near the Preakness shopping center, as a possible high end, or expanded range, food store. I remember hearing that they were opening the store but I have not visited it yet, although I have visited the store in Clifton near the GSP.

This should be a fairly large store since it occupies the former King's Supermarket space at 201 Berdan Avenue.

One of my memories of Corrado's is buying huge quantites of fava beans, bag after bag of them, only to discover that they have to be peeled twice. Wow that was a lot of work! My wife was really tired... Good fava beans, though... [prepared with olive oil, lemon, manchego, black pepper, Italian parsley and garlic - although you'll want to reduce the lemon juice to 2-3 tablespoons. Yum.]

Corrado's website says that the new store has everything that the original store does, such as seafood, meats, cheeses, a wide range of produce, prepared foods, and esoteric ethnic foods, so I'm looking forward to going soon. Open 7 days a week, 7 AM to 9 PM.

Anyone who goes, send us an email and we'll post about it.

Still, for us, Corrado's is farther away than Zeytinia -- it takes me about 25 minutes to get to Trader Joe's, and Corrado's is right around the corner from there.
