Fairway Market

Fairway Market is a specialty grocery store chain with an impressive assortment of both local and international foods. The selection of items is really quite outstanding.

The true appeal of the store is that you can find almost anything you want. If you can battle the crowds, you will be rewarded with delicious and unique food items that can’t be found in many other places.

Selection Heaven

Fairway Market is all about variety.

If you think items like granola and couscous come in only a few types, then you are in for a pleasant surprise! Perhaps you will find yourself in the mood for pumpkin spice granola or Israeli tri-color couscous.

Fairway also serves as a general supermarket. So you can still pick up the basics like milk and cereal in addition to the specialty items. The enormous produce selection is superior to most grocery stores, and the brilliantly colored fresh-cut fruits make indulgence so easy.

The vast selection and the crowds might be overwhelming, but the colorful signs and attractive displays should help.
