Roundup: Fresh Food Delivery Services
Want freshly picked vegetables straight from the farm? What about meat- or allergy-free foods? Try one of these local delivery services and let them do the work for you.
Boston’s most well-known organic delivery service, Boston Organics, partners with many local farms to make sure each week’s produce box is the best quality available. There’s no long-term membership commitment (just 48 hours to place or cancel an order) and every box is unique depending on availability.
Produce boxes range from $29 – $57, firstname.lastname@example.org, 617-242-1700, bostonorganics.com
For a monthly fee, Tasterie will deliver allergy-free food to your doorstep on the 15th of every month. You can choose your Tasterie box based on your specific dietary needs, whether it be gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free, and/or egg-free. Each box contains 12 to 15 servings of food to keep your allergy-free eating going until your next delivery. As food allergies can be very serious, make sure to check Tasterie’s allergen control standards to make sure they coincide with your needs.
Monthly membership starts at $25, email@example.com, 201-503-6632, tasterie.com
Healthy Habits Kitchen

One kit includes all the fresh ingredients you need, plus easy-to-follow recipe instructions that will help you create a healthy meal in less than 30 minutes. You choose from their extensive menu, and then select pick-up, shipment, or delivery. HHK also offers Farm2Fork kits ($9.99) which are non-perishable boxes filled with ingredients and recipes that help you turn your farmer’s market bounty into a full, healthy meal.
Meals for two start at $18.99, 781-235-6325, healthyhabitskitchen.com
