The New York City grocery chain, one of the country’s highest grossing food retailers per square foot, opened its sixth location in Pelham (Stamford, CT and are Douglaston, Queens are seven and eight). Expect fresh produce, homey prepared foods (salads, rotisserie chickens, crab cakes, lasagna, heat-and-eat main courses), international fare, a butcher shop and deli, as well as generous displays of coffees, olives, and oils. Don’t miss the renowned cheese department. Placards detail the provenance, characteristics, and uses of products.
High, low, organic, conventional—Fairway is the first Westchester grocery that promises one-stop shopping. Each dedicated zone (including—among others—produce, meat, wine, seafood, cheese, coffee, olives, and prepared food) is about the size of an independent store, and together they make the largest assembly of food in the County. Take it from us: bring your entire list, and wear comfortable shoes.
