Dairy Makes Us Smile

We love all food with a fiery passion, but there is something happy-making about milk and it's family. Cheese, Cream (and whipped cream, and ice cream)! Butter! Yogurt! We could live off of oozy triple cremes, milkshakes, gelato, mascarpone, chocolate mousse... Dairy is good for the soul.

Commitment to the Best

Terry Byrne, our Director of Dairy, has been stocking Fairway's dairy cases with the freshest, highest quality goods for more than a decade. It's his life's work; his passion. When it comes to dairy, Terry waxes poetic: "Everything remains the same, yet nothing remains the same." He's always searching relentlessly for the very best products--from the buttermilk for your baking to the string cheese for your kid's lunchbox--at the best possible prices. That way we pass on serious savings to you. But at the same time, new items, new ideas, new tastes flood the market, and Terry is ahead of the game. We've got the new flavor of Chobani; smoothies for breakfast on-the-run; luscious, lavish European butter; creme fraiche to serve with your fancy hors d'oeuvres; yogurts from Iceland, Greece, France, Australia, and more; milk (or soy milk, almond milk, rice milk) for your coffee; ice cream to take the pain away. And it goes without saying that if it's not fresh, fresh, fresh, it's nowhere near our shelves.

Be Good to your Bod

Besides being divinely tasty, dairy is also good for you. You may no longer have a tall glass of milk with each meal, but mom was right: dairy foods offer a bounty of health benefits. Dairy is bursting with calcium and protein, two essential ingredients for healthy bones and bod. Kefir, the fermented milk drink, fills your body with friendly bacteria to aid digestion and gives your immune system a leg up. Soy milk and cow's milk deliver loads of potassium and Vitamin D. Some studies have shown that getting in your dairy can make you slimmer. They probably didn't mean mint chocolate chip ice cream
