NEWS RELEASE (June 14, 2022) – Fareway Stores, Inc. hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony today for its new Meat Market location at 2716 Beaver Avenue in Des Moines. The 7,760 square foot store provides what customers have come to know and expect from Fareway – only the best in fresh, highest quality meat and a second-to-none, full-service butcher counter.
