Avoid COVID-19 with these local grocery delivery services

Ordering in veggies is the new world order.

Ordering in veggies is the new world order.

Picture it: Downtown Kingston on a Saturday morning watching as helping hands dole out crates of fresh produce and veggies.

Or to see vendors prep their stalls in earnest of catching the weekend shoppers to essentially ‘bruck ducks’.

Saturday market days have taken on a new stress thanks to the coronavirus, as we are advised to avoid crowds and ideally stay home.

On a brighter golden yellow note, several local delivery services have either ramped up production or hit the streets running to ensure their customers are satisfied in short order.

If anything, the COVID-19 pandemic – that has many of us bound to our four walls of comfort – has revitalised the courier economy.

Why not order in? You don’t want to go out and risk infecting yourself or your family; you don’t want to leave the house anyway, thanks to the ’itis; and you can have all the things you want delivered to your doorstep. Sign me up, I say!

Now, check your stock, then make a shopping list. If you don’t need a list, that’s even better.

Call to place your order and the job is done. See our list of farm-fresh veggie delivery services in Jamaica:

Insider tip for a COVID-19-free return of the good ’ol market days: For the best rates you want to go very early on a Saturday morning before the vendors start selling – and before the ‘goods’ have been priced so you can barter!
