Fresh Produce at the Airport? Eating on the Fly Just Got a Lot Less Grim

For most Americans, eating at airports “on the fly” means settling for a bite that is neither nutritious nor well priced. Luckily, the times they are a-changin’ thanks to the new wave of airport food...One such vendor is Tastes on the Fly, which operates Napa Farms Market. There, travelers find offerings from local producers such as Cowgirl Creamery, Acme Bread, Equator Coffee, and Frog Hollow Farms. Another selling point? The chef, Tyler Florence, is a partner, and the menu includes a “Tyler Florence Fresh” section featuring organic roasted chicken and seasonal salads. For East Coasters, Tastes on the Fly runs a similar concept, Berkshire Farms Market, in Terminal B of Boston’s Logan International Airport. Produce is sourced directly from farms and producers in Western Massachusetts, like cured meats from New England Charcuterie in Waltham and desserts from Salem bakery Melita Fiore.
