New Owner Adds Flair to Iconic Spot
Roseland icon Fairchilds Market, a purveyor of deli and prepared foods, fine wines, artisanal spirits, craft beers, ales, gifts and oddments, has added to its robust offerings. The quaint establishment, with an inviting, old-fashioned rustic, country store feel, now boasts a curated cheese case, meat and produce sections, and a refrigerated section with milk, eggs and other necessities, as well as tabletop displays of ripe tomatoes for making Sunday gravy, and other Italian specialty food favorites.
These additions come courtesy of new owner Chris Durko, a skilled butcher by trade, who is also the proprietor of four-year-old Caldwell Market Place. He says one of the main reasons he took over Fairchilds is because “everything is homemade.” Fairchilds is known for serving up hefty sandwiches, homemade dressings and sauces, as well as New Jersey’s own Town Hall triple-decker Sloppy Joe sandwich, and Pals Cabin’s original cream of mushroom soup.
“I felt Fairchilds was a great store and would be perfect with the addition of the products we sell at Caldwell Market Place,” says Durko. Now, when people stop in, “I enjoy helping them find the perfect cut and amount of meat needed for recipes and can assist them in completing their meal with a bottle of wine or liquor of their choice.”
