Amazon Expands Grocery Delivery From Whole Foods Market To Atlanta & San Francisco

Whole Foods Market Trades Its Roots for Bigger Brands

Prime time: Amazon brings free, two-hour Whole…

Amazon, which bought Whole Foods a year ago, began offering delivery in four markets in February: Dallas and Austin, Texas; Cincinnati; and Virginia Beach, Virginia.

Whole Foods has more than 470 stores in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. San Francisco and Atlanta have been added to the list, joining Austin, Cincinnati, Dallas, and Virginia Beach, which were all pilot cities that launched with this new initiative last month. However, if you'd like your order within one hour, you can pay an additional $8 for that quicker turnaround.

Amazon Prime Now users will be able to order fresh meat, produce, seafood, and other organic food items from Whole Foods.

The service is newly available to residents in Atlanta and many of its surrounding neighborhoods, and in San Francisco and nearby communities including Berkeley, Oakland, and part of Silicon Valley. Prime members can enter their ZIP code to find out if they live in an area where two-hour Whole Foods delivery is available.

Customers must spend over $35 per order to qualify for the free delivery through Amazon Prime Now, Amazon said on Tuesday.

Amazon is rolling out free two-hour delivery of Whole Foods products to San Francisco and Atlanta, bringing the total number of cities where grocery delivery is available to six.

The expansion of Whole Foods deliveries, similarly, seems to be running at a quickened pace, as competition with Walmart - which runs a popular grocery pickup service - looms. Amazon said at the time it plans to roll out the service nationwide.
