  • Dariusz Polish Deli & Grocery - 751 NJ-37, Toms River, NJ 08755

    Carlos’ Google review told me what I’m in for when I visit Sweet Green Food Market: This is my go-to place for deli meats, cheese, fresh rolls, and other bread. They have a nice variety of ethnic foods and a nice produce section. Their potato salad is great. They also have a large dried fruits and nuts section.
