If you have been reading my blog posts, you know that I strongly dislike (I’m trying not to use the word “hate”) food shopping. I just do. I find it very stressful and all I want to do is pick up what I need and get out of the store.
We’ve been shopping at Walbaum‘s since we moved back to Long Island more than 20 years ago. Walbaum’s is the main food store on the south shore of Long Island. So, we shop there.
The other day, I noticed that there was a new food store opening in Westbury, called Fairway. I’ve heard a lot about the supermarket but had never been there. Fairway also has a location in Plainview, which is 40 minutes from where I live.
I decided to take the drive over to Westbury, which is about 20 minutes away.
I was thoroughly impressed. Fairway tries to be like Wegman’s, the SUPER market upstate which has everything and can totally spoil a person. I wouldn’t say it was a Wegman’s but I would say that it is significantly better than Walbaum’s, Stop n’ Shop or any other supermarket I have visited in my geographical area.
The fruit, vegetable, cheese, meat, fish and coffee sections were amazing. They had a wide variety of different types of things that you wouldn’t normally see and everything looked extremely fresh, even on a Sunday evening!
The only thing that Fairway lacked was a nice “take and go” section.
If only Fairway had a better “take and go” section, I would say that we have found our Wegman’s on Long Island!
DISCLOSURE: NO CONNECTION, UNPAID, MY OWN OPINIONS
We have Sprouts and Whole Foods out here, but still nothing compared to my sacred Wegmans. Oh how I miss it! 🙁 Wegmans has introduced so many new and fun products since last year. I can’t wait to go back and stock up this December. Would you like me to bring you some lemon candies?
When I went to school in Syracuse, Wegman’s was THE place to hang out/grocery shop!
Peapod all the way!!! You order online, pick you delivery day/time, and your food gets brought into your kitchen. Seriously it’s my favorite luxury and I swear it saves my money on groceries.
