Brokes populi: How’s the new Fairway working out for you?

Friday was a really big deal in Red Hook, given the re-opening of the Red Hook Lobster Pound, Red Hook Winery and of course, Fairway. The Fairway opening was a huge deal. We were there. So were the Times and WNYC, and even CNN showed up and presumably hologrammed a report back to Wolf Blitzer. So now that we’ve had a weekend to revel in the glory of the all new Fairway, it’s time to start talking about it less as a symbol and more as a store.

Did you brave the crowds and head there this weekend? Was it a complete mob scene? If you’d previously been a Fairway shopper, what have you noticed that’s new about the store? Is there anything that they got rid of that you miss? And most importantly: what’s on sale right now? Tell us in the comments, because some of us really need to go food shopping.
