No, it's not too good to be true. It's just the Seabra Foods in Harrison.
Seabra Foods; the other owns Seabra's Market (formerly A Seabra Foods).
The hot foods are delicious, as are the baked goods. However, a word of warning: because the store is so upscale, grocery items are quite expensive.

Background on the Area
Sunset ParkSunset Park is a highly diverse, middle-class section that has areas of residential neighborhoods, vibrant and bustling business districts, and industrial stretches. Generally, the industry is closest to the water, moving to business districts on 4th and 5th Avenues, becoming largely residential by 6th Avenue. Just to the northeast of Sunset Park is the enormous Greenwood Cemetery, with the smaller but equally green Sunset Park (after which the neighborhood is named) a few blocks south. Sunset Park is incredibly diverse, with its population being 43% white and non-white Hispanic, 36% white, 29% Asian, and 25% other ethnicities.
Bay RidgeBay Ridge, on the other hand, is a much more traditional, quiet, and suburban (in some places) neighborhood. With a population made primarily up of families and that is 66% white, it's a slower-paced neighborhood. However, Bay Ridge does also have significant Hispanic and Middle Eastern populations, especially towards the eastern side. 5th Avenue is a major business center for the Middle Eastern community, while 4th Avenue and west is a primarily white area. 3rd Ave is also a major business district with trendier businesses such as Starbucks and many restaurants. West of 3rd Avenue is largely residential.
Regular posting will continue this week, including a store tour tomorrow, and we'll have another store tour next Monday, and memorabilia on Tuesday and Wednesday. Plus, come back on Thursday for a historical photo recently submitted to The Market Report and on Friday for a special video feature!

tour of Twin City, but I'm repeating it here to show what we're looking at today. As I said in the initial caption to this map, the Stop & Shop was built as an Edwards Super Food Store in the 1990s, then Stop & Shop opened in the early 2000s.

SuperFresh opened in the former Pathmark in the summer of 2016.
This particular property has a long history as a supermarket. Sam Aidekman had operated a Good Deal Supermarket here beginning in the 1960s, and when Good Deal sold to a ShopRite operator in 1976, it's possible this store became a ShopRite briefly. It was definitely later a Mayfair Foodtown before closing in the 1990s. A short-lived C-Town operated here about 2000-2005, and is visible closed in the 2007 Google Maps street view of the property.
here, and see a tour of their Newark location here.
Anyway, back to Irvington. You enter to the right and exit to the left.
