Forget the cart… shop local online

Let’s face it!  You’re busy…heck we’re all busy.  And in the case of shopping — technology is your friend.  I’ve been wishing this new shopping and pick up thing was available for years.  Mostly when my kids were little — who wants to take three kids into a store and roam the isles!  EEK! But I guess better late than never.   Many of us have tried online grocery shopping but it seems there is a new alternative to this.  I can still shop at my  local grocery store then pick it up — it’s all ready and waiting for you in a designated spot in the store.  Even better —  having fresh produce delivered to your front door? There are so many great options for this (see below).   It may take a few times to get your online ordering skills on point but let me tell you, it’s so worth it! Your orders will be saved and the next time you shop you can just click click click on the items you need and love and you’re done. Another bonus —  coupons are more accessible and it’s easier to take advantage of additional savings while shopping this way. With so many local grocers offering this service, whether it is delivery or pick-up, this will save you time and these days, time is money so it is a win win!

Located in North Bend this is a great option for your produce. Farming organically since 1996 they make it simple to live the good food life and bring the season’s best mix of organic produce and specialty farm products conveniently to your home or office.

Smith Brothers Farms is a local family-owned and operated dairy that has been serving the greater Puget Sound area for more than 90 years. They are one of the largest independent dairies in the region, processing and delivering the freshest milk and select Northwest products to more than 50,000 homes every week. And don’t be fooled, they don’t just have milk and eggs, my kiddos love the Alki Bakery Banana Bread and Blazing Bagels.

Although I have not tried New Roots Organics I love that they are located in Ballard and have been supporting healthy customers and local growers since 1999! Each week a bin of fresh seasonal produce is delivered, you will have the option to customize what you are getting prior to your delivery.  Throughout the year they make it a priority to include locally grown produce 1st, and then when needed to make your bins balanced and complete, they will include citrus, avocados, fresh greens and lettuces , etc. from California, and sometimes Mexico but they will always identify what is grown locally. Let me know what you think if you have tried New Roots Organics, I would love to know.
