Grocery Deliveries in San Diego
Who's ready to feast this week? Did you get the turkey and cranberries? Don't wait until the last minute to brave the crowds. There's an app for that! Use a grocery delivery service!
We used Instacart recently (ad) as they're partnered with our weekly recipe service. It was so easy to add items to our online grocery cart right from my cell phone. And I didn't even have to leave my kitchen. They delivered it the next day, on a Sunday no less!
While the personal shopper was selecting items from our list, he would text us about any substitutions if items were out of stock. Our produce was great and frozen items were still frozen when they arrived.
In the past we've also used Vons delivery and Amazon Prime Now as partnered with Sprouts. Both were also great and easy to use. I tend to use Amazon Prime Now for super last minute things because their delivery windows run as late as 10pm. Perfect for items needed for the next day, like milk or cereal.
