Good Eggs - Local, Organic Food to Your Doorstep!

At the suggestion of a patient I checked out Good Eggs and it is AMAAAAAAAAZING! I highly believe in buying organic and local but I don't always have the time to go to the Farmer's Market so Rob Spiro, the genius that he is, put it online. Imagine Fresh Direct but straight from the farm. They have been in Brooklyn, San Francisco and parts of Los Angeles and New Orleans. And just last month they officially opened up Manhattan delivering in a handful of downtown neighborhoods. They're now delivering to Soho, West Village, Gramercy, Union Square, Flatiron, parts of Tribeca and Chelsea. This area covers: 10003, 10010, 10011, 10012, 10013 and 10014 (ZIP codes). They have plans to expand to more of Manhattan in the coming months.
Combined, the company uses more than 1,000 local farmers and food-makers.



On the website, www.goodeggs.com shoppers can sort by preferences such as items that are locally grown, vegetarian, vegan, organic, wheat-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, heritage breed, kosher, or even made with pastured eggs. Delivery is available seven days a week and is free on orders over $75. Unfortunately this is not an immediate gratification site. Deliveries must be scheduled at least two days in advance. I find the prices reasonable considering you are getting it local, organic food delivered at the click of a button!
