It’s a pandemic and you need groceries. Your first option: stand in a line outside your local supermarket, sometimes wrapping around the block, and prepare for the nerve-racking game of dodging other shoppers that follows. Option two: join the booming delivery trend, and order your groceries online.

Delivery demand is now higher than ever, and many mainstream outlets like Amazon Fresh and Instacart are having trouble keeping up.
Fortunately, plenty of options have popped up across the past month that allow you to source your groceries elsewhere — and support local businesses. Some are even guaranteeing next-day delivery.
We’ve got sources for produce, dairy, meat/seafood/protein alternatives, pantry items, and coffee, all below. Here’s how and where to place your order.
