NEW YORK — Fairway Market, New York’s iconic grocery store chain, has partnered with Olive Roots, a Greek specialty food sourcing company, to import authentic Mediterranean products from Greece and Cyprus. To celebrate, Fairway is hosting “Eat Like A Greek,” a three-week in-store promotion from September 27th to October 17th, which will feature artisan brands and producers who will be present for conversation and sampling of exclusive products.
“At Fairway Market, we pride ourselves on providing not only locally made regional delicacies, but also gourmet items from around the world,” said Abel Porter, Chief Executive Officer at Fairway Market. “Eat Like A Greek will allow our customers to experience and taste healthy, flavorful and authentic Greek artisanal food straight from this region.”
For a limited time, customers will be able to sample various items including halloumi cheese, raw honey, sea salts, jellies, soup mixes, rolls, biscuits, cookies, grains, mineral water and olive oils.
“We are thrilled that Fairway will now be offering all these specialty foods from Greece and Cyprus. Authentic Greek products are truly missing from US shelves and we couldn’t be happier that New Yorkers will now have access to the very best via Fairway’s stores!” said Katerina Barka-Papalucas, Founder & CEO of Olive Roots.
