Corrado's in Fairfield??

A co-worker swears that Corrado's has taken over the space on Rt 46E where the red barn was (a farmer's market of sorts)...? NOTHING on Corrado's site, so I'm throwing it out to the Hounds...anyone seen/read/heard this?

  1. It's true. I was there once a few weeks back. It is a VERY small store and their selection is extremely limited. They do have deli and seafood departments, but they are tiny. No bakery department yet. Supposedly the family has plans to greatly expand the store, so maybe one day it will rival the Wayne or Clifton stores. But we're a while away from that. It might be OK if you're in the area and need a few things, but it is not really suitable for larger shopping trips yet.

          1. Corrado's replaced Vince's Family Market. I work less than a mile from here and occasionally went to Vince's for breakfast sandwiches (which were actually the best I've ever had though others say they were too greasy) or for the salad bar. Generally speaking though, Vince's was below average for a deli/market. I went to Corrado's one afternoon for lunch and was extremely disappointed. I found the quality of the prepared foods to be low and with a fairly limited selection. The groceries seemed to be even more limited. I've heard amazing things about other Corrado's locations and this truly cannot compare. This place is actually worse than Vince's. I have not returned since.

              Can't lie; I was turned off by the smell in there--and it's not that stuff was rotten--it's something that many of these indoor 'markets' have.
