If you are one of the few people who have not checked out the newly expanded Barth’s Market, then make sure that you put a visit to the favorite neighborhood market on your to do list. The traditional local butcher, which has served New Providence for almost fifty years, underwent a major expansion in 2017 which did more than just increase their square footage. Barth’s Market has filled its new marketplace with an expanded selection of prepared foods and soups, a salad and poke bowl counter, produce, and gourmet sandwiches in addition to the seafood, deli and butcher counters that have made them a neighborhood staple for decades. Its two full size industrial kitchens keep the counters stocked with all of the necessities to keep busy families well fed and now allow Barth’s Market to cater corporate and private parties, lunches and events.
Seeking to escape war-torn Europe in 1940, Otto Barth emigrated from Germany to America and opened the first Barth’s Pork Store in Irvington, relocating to its current location at 41 South Street in 1960. Otto brought with him traditional Old World recipes for cold cuts, sausages and meats. He maintained high standards for quality and customer service which have been carried on to this day. Barth’s Market has been owned and operated by four generations of the Barth family who strictly adhere to Otto’s high standards. They are first and foremost a neighborhood market. Regulars know the butchers behind the counter and every customer knows that they will be served only the highest quality product.
Owner Jim Barth is proud of the changes they made expanding their inventory to provide busy customers with fresh, quick high quality foods to go. “We went from an old school German pork store,” he said, ”to a full scale market by increasing our selection of items such as prepared foods, salads, produce and seafood while maintaining our tradition of homemade cold cuts and meats.”
One of the most popular additions to the menu at Barth’s Market, which is overseen by Max Barth, is the salad and poke bowls. Customers first choose a salad or base of whole grains and then customize it by adding from a wide array of meats, seafood, vegetables and meatless proteins to build a delicious fresh meal that is healthy and reasonably priced. Max also offers a large selection of fresh gourmet sandwiches. You can try one of Max’s specials or put together one of your own. Top it with a cup of homemade soup for a fantastic meal. Order ahead and these are all available for catering and corporate lunches.
