Aspen Market Place to celebrate 1st Anniversary in Hoboken

Good news not only for food lovers – but folks looking for a break on their grocery bills! Aspen Market Place (226 Washington St.) celebrates their 1st Birthday in Hoboken next weekend.

“The store formerly known as Garden of Eden” is so excited by this first year under their new name – that they’re providing customers with a coupon for a whopping 20% off their entire bill on Friday, April 5th and Saturday, April 6th.

Garden of Eden changes owners; Now Aspen Market Place

5/3/2012 Update:

A little clarification – you guys can be at ease. Nothing will change except the ownership, as they told me:

“The new store name is Aspen Market Place. Everything is remaining the same, products, employees etc. Just the name change and ownership.”

5/1/2012 Update:
Hoboken411 reader Pat found out today that the Garden of Eden market at 226 Washington Street has been sold, and within 2 weeks will be closing and new “management” will be taking over.

For those that were hoping for a Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods – you’re out of luck. It’s apparently set to become a Korean food market.

If true, I wonder why they sold. Profits not good enough? Rent too high? Too many homeless stealing oranges? Do they see something coming down the horizon that we don’t know about?

Hoboken Garden of Eden: Take a look inside


Opening in less than 12 hours, let’s see what the store many people will be shopping at looks like!

I wonder if Kings is going to be in any trouble now. They better spruce up their act, or they may have something to worry about.

I’m sure GoE will be mobbed their first few weeks. I suggested to the owner Mike, that they should consider being open even longer, possibly even 24hrs.

More pics after the break.

The manager there was off by a little more than a week. But hey, we just reported what they said. You know Hoboken, you can never really believe timelines. The Hoboken Actual Time Translator (HATT) would have been handy, had I developed it yet.

A reader in the comments section indicates 12/28 is what the sign in the window says. Hours from 7am-10pm!

Garden of Eden opening soon in Hoboken

12/14/2006 Update:

Spoke with the manager today. They were having open interviews from 9:00-4:00. Got to take a peek inside. It’s looking very nice. Most shelves are stocked, with the exception of perishable fresh food, meats and vegetables. They didn’t allow pictures yet.

This Garden of Eden has an upstairs eating area that can accommodate 40 diners, plus public restroom facilities.

Expected opening date: Either Tuesday, December 19th or Wednesday, December 20th. Mark your calendars!

Garden of Eden Progress in Hoboken

10/31/2006 Update:

Their awning went up a few days ago. They should be opening eventually!

9/28/06 Update:

Here’s a few pictures of the progress. I have a feeling it will be an enormously popular store. At least in the beginning.

7/31/06: A reader indicated it’s a “Garden of Eden Gourmet” store, which has five locations in NYC.

A brief check on Yahoo indicates that a few people just think it’s an overpriced gourmet shop where the quality has gone down and the prices have gone up. Check that here.

Will apparently become a “supermarket”, as one of the construction workers had told me.

They didn’t specify a name due to the language “barrier”.
What could it be? A Trader Joe’s? We doubt it because they insist on parking for their locations. Perhaps a 7-11 type store?

Will find out more this week if we get down there.

At least not another bank!
