Like No Other Market, Fairway grew from a fruit and vegetable stand in 1933 to a New York City institution that sells the best local, national and international artisan foods for prices that can’t be beat.
Despite our growth, the things that remain constant are the desire to keep Fairway Market as true to its entrepreneurial and customer-focused roots as possible, and to never lose sight of all of the things that make Fairway unique and special to millions of people each year: being the first to carry or import something new and delicious, sky-high piles of daily-delivered produce, a best of the best kosher selection, the freshest seafood, custom-cut USDA Prime meat from our Butcher Shop, an immense variety of organic and natural foods and products in every category, one-stop shopping with a full assortment of traditional groceries at fantastic values, the only market to roast hand-selected coffee beans of the highest quality on premises, an overall selection that all other grocery stores are absolutely envious of, and trained team members who are incredibly passionate and knowledgeable about food.
Regarding our coffee operation, Howie was once asked how Fairway learned so much about it. Howie responded, “It’s like everything else we do in the store. Whenever we bring a new product into the store, or a new department into the store, we become experts at it.” And that just about sums it up.
