New to Montclair area: sushi, produce, burritos

Hi all! We just moved to Montclair from Brooklyn, and I've had a great time following up on some of the other Montclair-themed threads - Chengdu 1, for example, was amazing, and ditto the coffee chip ice cream at Mark & Julie's. However, there are a handful of specific questions that I wanted to run by the board. Any help is greatly appreciated.

1) We're pretty enthusiastic sushi eaters, but are also trying to be good doobies and stick to sustainably-sourced fish. This can make it difficult to go to a place like Tomo, where it seems to be purely omakase. While I don't expect to find a sushi restaurant that specifically emphasizes sustainable sushi (heck, there isn't one in all of NYC), is there a sushi place within driving distance that (A) is really good, and (B) would at least know the source of their fish (and wouldn't mind someone being a pain and asking about it)? A lot of sushi chefs get annoyed by this line of inquiry...

2) I know about the Saturday farmer's market, but is there a good source of fresh produce for the other six days of the week? A farmstand would be wonderful, but if not, is one supermarket notably better than the others?

3) Finally, is NJ any less of a burrito wasteland than New York? Anywhere with burritos worth driving to nearby?

Thanks for any suggestions. This is quite an adjustment, but looks like a great one so far!
