Eden Gourmet in South Orange. Making South Orange and Even More Awesome Place to Live.

Rear Entrance of Eden Gourmet in South Orange.
Yesterday I forced myself to go into the new Eden Gourmet located on South Orange Avenue in South Orange, New Jersey. I had been wanting to check it out for a while but never got a chance.

Ok. Let me break it down for you very quickly. It’s a cross between Whole Foods, Balducci’s and a 1970’s throwback heath food store — minus the stoners working the register.

There’s a great selection of fruits and vegetables. An excellent meat and fish section. A really interesting station where they make homemade doughnuts and other awesome sweets. A fantastic hot food area. And a scattering of other gourmet food items I have never seen.

Yummy fruits and veggies at Eden Gourmet.

It’s a very cool place.

This store is definitely worth a look. It’s a perfect addition to South Orange Village. Eden Gourmet totally reinforces South Orange’s upscale eclectic image.

I know that times are tough, and buying foods from a gourmet grocery store like Eden Gourmet might be the last thing on people’s minds – but trust me – when you go to sell your home in a couple of years — the buyers are going to be wowed by places like EG. Stores like this make the transition from a places like Manhattan to South Orange a lot easier. It’s a shame that the Dancing Goat is gone.

I would have to agree with you. Being a 12 year resident of South Orange who made his way here via the Bronx, Manhattan and Newport in Jersey City , I shopped all over Hoboken and New York. I really like Eden Gourmet. It makes a very nice addition to a primary South Orange NJ location that is in the heart of the Village. The prices are reasonable considering the price of gas to travel somewhere else so that also becomes a key issue. More importantly the food is great and I am especially a fan of the cooked food and the many yogurt combinations. It’s a great place to visit and the family enjoys the ambience so shopping there is a true experience. Greg Burrus

I was shopping at the Eden Gourment market on Tuesday around 1:30pm. While I was shopping, someone removed a magnetic business sign from the side of my jeep. I would like it back so if anyone sees this please let me know

Have to say Marty the butcher is fantastic. Have never met a butcher like him. Hope the owners appreciate him like I do.
