Queens County is growing into a major culinary player. It has its own BBQ house (LIC’s John Brown Smokehouse), a lauded fusion restaurant (Sunnyside’s Salt & Fat), and now … it’s own Fairway Market.
On Wednesday, November 16, Fairway Market Douglaston will throw open its doors — the first location in the county. The more than 56,000 square feet of space will boast a 600-plus cheese selection and hundreds of specialty products, including olive oils, baked goods, and prepared foods; there will also be a butcher. A smoked-salmon selection that rivals Zabar’s means no more schlepping on the 7 train to get your weekend fix … well, maybe.
