Hylton's Market recently opened in Camden on Camden-Wyoming Avenue under new managment, offering new dishes and sandwiches at its deli.


An old favorite came back in Camden Jan. 1 when Hylton’s Market re-opened its doors under new management.

Angie and Manuel Lozada are the new co-owners of the deli and convenience shop, and said they wanted to offer sandwiches and food of the Spanish, Mexican and American varieties.

Sitting down with the Dover Post on Feb. 21, the Lozada’s talked about the changes made in the re-opening and what customers can expect.

Q How did you come to the decision to re-open the business as the new co-owners?

A Manuel: This was always my dream. This is my favorite thing, cooking. I do all the cooking. I get up at 4 a.m. every day to start making things fresh.

Q What makes your deli unique?

A Angie: When someone orders something, we cook it right then and there. We don’t have it already cooked up, sitting out and getting dry and cold. We cook all the things fresh. Also, we load our cheese steaks and chicken cheese steaks up with lots of meat. We like to give lots of meat so that everybody will be satisfied.

Q Do you offer breakfast, lunch and dinner?

A Angie: Yes, and we’ll do all meals all day long. If someone wants breakfast at night, they can get it. If someone comes into the shop in the morning and wants an Italian sub for lunch for later in the day, we’ll make it for them right then.

Q What dish would you recommend to a new customer?

A Angie: Our rice and beans. We have a platter, you get the rice and beans, and then you get a choice of a piece of chicken, a pork chop or a steak all for $7. You get a really big portion of rice. And with the rice, [Manuel] uses homemade sofrito, which is a Spanish seasoning. He makes fresh sofrito, and that is what makes the rice.
