Good thing Fairway Market (@FairwayMarket) partnered with High Road Craft Ice Cream (@HighRoadCraft) to create four signature flavors for your mouth.
This weekend is not only for the father in your life. It is for the father figures—the ones putting in the work, showing up and being the best person they can be for the children they love. I salute them.
