Coles and Woolies may have put their online ordering systems on hold, but luckily there are a few smaller Perth businesses who deliver groceries straight to your door and now is the perfect time to throw some love their way.
Whether you’re in need of essentials like pasta and milk or you just want a big box of cheese and a carton of wine to get you through the tough times, jump online and put in your order with these Perth grocers who deliver.
BidFood usually supplies our amazing hospitality sector, but with the drop in demand there, the crew is bringing groceries direct to your door. All you need to do is sign up online and get ordering. There is a minimum order of $200 so you can go ahead and stock up on all the pantry essentials as well as fresh produce, cleaning products and more.
The Good Grocer
Edit: Since publishing this article, The Good Grocer is no longer able to accept new customers.
With stores in Applecross, Leederville, Shenton Park and South Perth, you might already be familiar with The Good Grocer and their next level fresh produce. If not, you’ll want to jump online and take a look. They can deliver everything you’d expect from a standard supermarket, from fresh fruit and veg to toothpaste and Panadol. They also whip up fresh salads and a few ready to eat meals like quiches for those nights when you don’t feel like cooking. With free delivery on your first order, it’s the perfect time to give them a go.
La Vida Vegan
Plant-based peeps will know that La Vida Vegan has been delivering for a while now, but in support of those who are practising social distancing or in self isolation, they’ve dropped their delivery fee on any orders over $80 until the end of March. Whether you’re looking for dairy free cheese, tinned lentils, Vego chocolate or plant-based meat, you’ll be able to find it here. They also stock a range of cruelty free handbags, clothing and gifts as well as plenty of vegan beauty items, just in case you need more than a plain old food delivery.
The Fruit Basket
The guys at The Fruit Basket have started offering contact-free delivery and pick up too. You can get everything from fresh fruit and vegetables, homemade meals, cheese and eggs to tinned lentils, antipasto pasta and flour. Give them a call or message them on Facebook to order and let them know if you want it delivered or ready to pick up. Minimum spend for delivery is $60 and there's a $5 delivery fee for those within a 5km radius, though if you're willing to pay a little extra they'll deliver within a 20km radius of their Mount Pleasant store.
The legends at CBD restaurant The Heritage have decided not to jump on the takeaway bandwagon—it's not really suited to their style of food, after all—but they'll be doing a total pivot and, as of Tuesday 24 March, will be launching as an online providore with fresh fruit and vegetables, family style meals, fresh bread and there's even a butcher's counter. Of course, they'll also be selling wine by the bottle or the case.
Finns Seafood is about to launch an online shop so they can deliver fresh, locally caught seafood straight to your door.
If you're looking for fresh seafood, Kailis will deliver it straight to your door. The website is updated daily with the fresh catch and they have pick up options if you don't fall within the delivery area.
Not groceries, we know, but sometimes a bottle of wine is just as essential as a box of pasta. Mounts Bay Liquor, Besk, Old Bridge Cellars, Otherwise Brewing Co and the locally owned Brentwood Liquor Barons are all offering delivery so show them some love.
