Delite Market metamorphasis

Delite renovates – more a liquor store than a market now

Little markets and bodegas are staples of urban neighborhoods that residents rely on for every day necessities. And Delite Market at 420 Washington Street was just that. They even boasted some pretty competitive wine prices too!

However – they’ve radically changed over the past few weeks – with the “market” like products vanishing, and it looks like it’s turned into a almost dedicated liquor store.

Hoboken411 reader Tanya said: “For the past month I’ve been wondering what’s going on with Delite Market on 5th & Washington. It was a nice market with a great selection of day-to-day items plus gourmet selections. For the past weeks it looks like they’ve been clearing out the store. Am disappointed because I’ve relied on this neighborhood store for about 10 years now!”

Speaking with the owners yesterday – they said it was a business strategy to switch to mostly liquor.

With 7 Eleven next door selling similar items, that may make sense. They even blamed the $5 foot longs at Subway as one of the influencing factors.

I really don’t think you should classify this under a bodega. This store actually is clean, carrys Boars Head cold cuts and a decent variety of wines. Whenever I need something really quick and don’t feel like dealing with the supermarkets this is my first option. The people who run it are great too and they love my dogs (so that helps).

Couldnt have said it any better. Excellent selection, very clean, and very friendly owners. Try any of the sandwhiches (esp the Dynamic duo) You will not be disappointed.

I frequent this place and it is good. The guys are very nice and helpful. They’ll make ya a sneaky good sandwich to boot. I feel bad for them on St. Patty’s day with all the retards in town.

very nice people here, and the prices are very reasonable, especially for Washington st.
they did stop carrying my favorite pretzels though, so I only give them 4 out of 5 stars.
