Good Eggs is the local and homegrown version of Fresh Direct. Founded in San Francisco by two tech entrepreneurs, this company’s mission is to grow and sustain local food. Currently in just a few cities (San Francisco, Brooklyn, Los Angeles, and New Orleans), Good Eggs connects people to food by giving you information and history on the producers. It is a modern day farmer’s market that delivers (or you can opt to pick it up).
The website is extremely well done — easy to navigate, with beautiful images, and lots of information.
As a self acclaimed grocery store snob, this place scores an A+. I would love to buy everything that they sell — the greens, the breads, the meats, the fish, the granola, the cookies, EVERYTHING. It is a butcher, a baker, and candle stick maker in one place! You just simply have to go to your computer, order and your local groceries go straight to you!! (and if you live in Manhattan as opposed to Brooklyn like we do, then you have to pick it up….#firstworldproblems).
Your food is picked and prepped to order so the locally grown produce is ripe. Since you are ordering ahead, nothing sits around and everything comes like you want it to! Our greens were out of this world good, and the granola was to die for. I just hope that someday soon, they will be able to deliver to Manhattan (please oh please?) Check out Good Eggs if you live in NYC, LA, SF and NO. Have a great weekend!
