Nosh on this!

The new Fairway Market in bustling Georgetown now offers fresh kosher pastries, muffins, and scones in its bakery.

Locals have long griped about the lack of kosher grub in the neighborhood, so everyone is salivating for some Rabbi-approved treats, said the founder of the Jewish Community Council of Marine Park.

“I think it will be an enhancement. They will definitely have people patronize the establishm­ent,” said Shea Rubenstein. “We definitely welcome it to the community.”

And the bakery gets an extra stamp of approval for getting its certification from widely accepted Mehadrin Kosher and KOF-K Kosher Supervision, said Rubenstein.

“That’s definitely a good certificat­ion,” he said.

The bakery offers fresh-out-of-the-oven kosher bagels, rolls, and baguettes — its dough made in a strictly kosher commissary in the Bronx, and shipped daily to the Ralph Avenue market. And the bakers get regular visits from special kitchen supervisors called “mashgiachs” to make sure that all the cookies and scones meet religious standards, according to Fairway Market.

And just in time for the Passover holiday next month, Fairway is stocking up on kosher-for-passover food, which means it contains no chametz, or anything that causes it to rise, according to information from Fairway.

The bakery joins the Ralph Avenue supermarkets other kosher fare — including meats and fish — making it a one-stop shop for all, and any goods that aren’t Rabbi-approved are clearly labeled, said Fairway’s vice president of marketing Deana Moore.

The diverse Georgetown community and surrounding neighborhoods can all enjoy the bakery’s fresh goodies, said Assemblywoman Jaime Williams (D–Georgetown).

“The importance of Kosher Certification of the Fairway Market Bakery will ensure that not only observant Jewish constituents will be able to avail themselves of the terrific baked goods at Fairway but the entire community can now all enjoy a wonderful treat to nosh on,” Williams said.
