Celebrate 80 Years of Fairway with 8 Fairway Market Faves

Happy birthday to us! 80 years ago, Nathan Glickberg began Fairway Market as a humble fruit and veggie stand on the Upper West Side. We’ve grown slowly but surely, filling our racks with incredible finds from around the world and close to home. We’ve opened more stores, but we’ve remained true to our roots. We are […]

Fairway Red Hook is Back, Baby!

In case you missed it…we’re back! We opened our doors Friday morning, with big ceremony, celebrities, and excitement, and we’ve been rocking since then.

Fairway Cheers On KIC It Triathletes: Notes from the Field

I’m no stranger to working at events on the weekend as part of my internship. So when Mika texted me on Friday informing me we needed people to volunteer in Stamford on Sunday for the KIC It Triathalon, to benefit youth from troubled backgrounds, I figured, “Why not?” When she told me I needed to […]

What’s In This Cool Looking Tin? Sicilian Girolamo Anchovies, Of Course!

All the mock-authoritarian, faux-expert American foodwriters continue to tell you sea salted anchovies is the only way to go.  Which is total nonsense.  No matter how long you soak and rinse them they remain unpalatably salty.  And bony.  The best anchovy is a hand-filleted anchovy hand-packed in olive oil or vegetable oil.

Introducing Fairway California Arbosana Unfiltered EVOO

Just this January we chose to offer our California barrel oil pressed from the arbosana olive rather than the usual mission olive. We remain smitten with the work done by our longtime friends at the Corning California Olive Oil Company’s groves.  Their pioneering devotion to the arbosana olive has become widely copied by their slavish competitors, […]
