Thursdays is Farmer’s Market day in Teaneck. This is both a great opportunity to get some seriously primo produce, Amish baked goods and vegetables, cheese, plus other yummy stuff, and to go visit Pizza Cave in the same shopping plaza and grab a felafel sandwich for lunch.
439 Cedar LN, Teaneck, NJ
Pizza Cave is a Kosher Dairy pizzeria. Therefore all the pizzas are (lacto-ovo) vegetarian , meaning you can get fish and egg items as well (because under the laws of Kashrut, Fish and Eggs are classified as “pareve” or neutral). In addition to Kosher pizza, you can also get some interesting Israeli-style items such as Burekas and different types of Knishes.
Pizza Cave is also one of the few Kosher restaurants in the North Jersey area that has a real, authentic Israeli-style felafel bar where you ‘stuff your own. This is just a small sampling of the salad toppings they have. I like to put Turkish Eggplant Salad, Israeli Salad, Hummus, Hot Sauce and pickles on mine.
I like the felafel balls here because they’ve got a good amount of cumin spicing and the texture is accurate to what you’ll find in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.
Make sure you get yourselves a Bosco chocolate soda from the soda dispensing machine. It’s totally old-school New York / Brooklyn.

Amish butter. You just know I bought some of this.
Picklelicious is a local business based in Teaneck. They got some seriously good stuff.
These are horseradish pickles that are so hot, they’ll cauterize your nasal cavity.
This is the new cheese vendor. Clearly, she’s not Amish.
