In the age of the lazy person, getting people to do things for you in general is an art. Getting them to do your food shopping for you? That’s good. Getting them to hand-select everything so it’s perfectly ripe, delicious, and ready to go? That’s the dream. 

And the dream is indeed a reality thanks to ShopWings a personal shopper service that can have your groceries to you within two hours. Yep, you read that right, no need to order a day in advance or schlep to the shops yourself. Plan dinner party menu, shop, sit on behind, answer door, cook. Win. Or simply just grab your weekly shop because who wants to physically visit the shops during peak time? Nope. 

The personal shoppers are even trained in the art of selecting the perfect avo. Because there is no worse form of torture than waiting for one to ripen. None. 

Here are our top picks of the awesome local shops available on ShopWings

Wellington Cakes

Let’s start with the important stuff: cake. This Bondi Road institution, run by David Brull and his family, will deliver incredibly fresh and downright delicious bread rolls, sweet baked goods, and fresh pastries to your door on ShopWings. Yes, don’t panic, their famous Gugelhupf is indeed on the delivery menu. And don’t fear if you’re gluten free, you won’t need to miss out. Wellington Cakes have a lovely selection of treats that will keep your body happy.

Lucas Meats

You know you’re in good hands when your butcher has been supplying Sydneysiders with top quality meat for over 45 years. David Lucas and the team can sort you out with some cheeky steaks for an afternoon BBQ, or will organise your Christmas feast if you want. They also produce their own line of bacon and ham, that is cured and smoked in-house. It tastes every bit as good as it sounds.

The One That Got Away

Fish is a tricky one, isn’t it? You want it fresh, but the fish market trip can be gruelling. Never fear, Bondi Road fish shop The One That Got Away is here. Owner Barry and his team head to the fish market at 3am every day to select the best seafood you can buy in Sydney. So there’s no reason to buy questionable prawns ever again when you can get the best of the best delivered to your door and on your table in no time.

Hummerston's Gourmet Butcher

Another butcher that has been owning the biz for 45 years, Hummerston's in Lane Cove is famous among locals for their awesome offering of meats, smallgoods and tempting condiments. All of the meat is sourced direct from the farm, with beef from Gympie, QLD, and pork from the Murray Valley in NSW. With ShopWings and Hummerstons, you can have yourself your very own farm-to-table restaurant at home.

The Divine Grocer

Ever bought a dodgy supermarket apple or fondled too many soft tomatoes before giving up? Order your fresh fruit and veg from Bondi Junction’s The Divine Grocer and that will be a thing of the past. Owner Ari heads down to Flemington Markets every single morning to select the produce, and has done for over 20 years. Talk about the warm and fuzzies. Give them a go and lettuce know if you can taste a difference.
