The BEST!!! There is no supermarket that competes. There should be a word for something one level up from supermarket, like suprememarket.

The quality is absolutely the best. It has all of that greater-quality type foods you may find in the organic markets or the smaller, snobbier grocery stores but without the limits of the “organic” label or the snooty lady behind the counter.

The prices are surprisingly reasonable for most products. These are not Whole Foods prices! Most things are on par with normal supermarkets, but then you have the option to take it a few steps up.

Iavarone Bros? thats not the best. Too many labels constraining it. When you make it “italian market” or “organic” you are limiting yourself. No limits to its greatness at FW.

Some highlights are the Hot Buffet, the Cheeses (I need to start exploring), the olive oil, the coffee bean aisle, the olive bar, the bread counter, the beer selection, the great produce, meat quality and selection… it seems like everything they do is brought to a higher level.

I love to take people there who have never been there. It really is a life changing experience. When you see the people’s eyes light up, that they realize there are better things out there, its a great feeling.

If you want the best in supermarkets, you go to Fairway. There is nothing else like it.

  3. It’s worth the trip. We can go 2 minutes from our home to 3 different markets. But we take the 22 minute ride to Fairway. It’s always a terrific shopping experience!!!!!!!!!
