Hackensack Market
« on: December 19, 2010, 01:20:16 AM »
I found an interesting review of Passaic Street's Hackensack Market here:

This place has no review so I will post one, esp as I am sending people to this business hehe

This place is a little town produce and meat market with an attached bakery.  The produce here is pretty good and has a good price thing going...pretty cheap.
The meat dept...does not seem big on refridgeration. lol  Everything is me you can smell it.(minus 1 star there). 
Vegans and vegos beware...this place smells like an old fasioned meat market.
The poultry is priced well.

This store carries primarily Latino products, which is why I am reviewing it...these places carry a lot of little yummy items...the main reason I am posting this review is to say that this place sells REAL COCA COLA!  I dont mean the American made corn syrup crap that Coca Cola sells here now as "coca cola classic" I mean the REAL classic coca cola that made coke what it is today that they stopped selling in the US when they abandoned sugar for corn syrup.  This soda is made with CANE SUGAR instead.  Its the difference between night and day compared to the US version.  This soda is worth the trip alone.  After having this, you will NEVER want normal Coca Cola again.  This is a rare find...but even better is this market will take your debit card for it..even just for 1...and thats difficult to find, as this product is usually only sold in little cash only bodegas.

Like I said, this place is worth a stop just for the vintage Coca Cola...but its also a good local spot to pick up some other kitchen goodies. Check it out :)

He gave it 3 stars out of 5.

I looked for a picture of the place to go with the review, but there were none online, so I took one.

Now there's one online:

I love this place.  We grill a lot in the summer and often run here to get meat.  Their skirt steak (entraa) is especially good.  Buy it with some chimichurri sauce, usually displayed right on the meat counter.

Yes, and it is especially convenient for those living within 1/2 mile. It is just unfortunate that the building is such an eyesore.  To be painted a fire-engine red, it's very tacky.
