Authentic Asian eats, anyone?

Though it began February 5th, the 15-day celebration of Chinese New Year is still in full force!

From traditional to non-traditional, Fairway Market offers an extensive selection of international products that can make your Chinese New Year festivities complete this year.

With a focus on the diverse cultures and unique tastes of our communities, the island-wide grocer promises you’ll find everything on your list – and then some!

Started in 1963, Fairway Market spans across the island with their 10 locations; 9 of those being right here in Victoria! They grew from from a small family business to one of Vancouver Island’s largest independently owned grocery stores, and with the impressive list of unique items they have in store, it’s easy to see why.

Though the list of eclectic and hard-to-find international treasures is long, Fairway Market offers so much more than that – a proudly local produce department, the finest meats and cheeses from around the globe, and a deli that is out-of-this-world!

If you’re entertaining, you can choose from a wide range of freshly-made deli platters – everything from your typical meat and cheese trays, fruit and dessert trays, all the way to hand-rolled sushi platters.

There are even a few select locations (Quadra, Shelbourne, Westshore and Nanaimo Fairway Markets) that house their very own Chinese kitchen – that’s right, you could have fresh chow mein and sweet and sour pork right from your local grocer’s deli!

With the spotlight on local flavours and treats from over 70 different countries, Fairway Market could be a one-stop shop for basically anything you could imagine – even if it’s not pig-related!
