Everyone loves a good delivery. It’s a simple fact.
Delivery services are the easiest way to give yourself the gift of fresh food, flowers, organic pre-packed meals, craft brews and doughnuts. It’s all about balance after all. And since we love you so much, we’ve rounded up the best services delivering in Sydney, because we don’t all have time to trawl the farmers markets every Saturday morning, as much as we would all love to.
There is nothing cliché or ‘done’ about Bloombox Co’s botanical subscription service, which delivers a curated box of Australian botanicals straight to your doorstep. They are breaking all of the rules; with weekly, fortnightly or monthly boxes featuring a curated selection of native blooms and baby pineapples. Just maybe don’t eat those cuties. The concept is simple—select how frequently you want to receive a Bloombox and then let that creativity flow while you create your own floral masterpiece.
You may have seen Foodora bikes zooming around, delivering tasty offerings from some of the best restaurants in Sydney. The process is simple. Just order your meal through their app or website and, within the hour, you will have a fresh meal in your hot little hands. There are loads of Sydney restaurants jumping aboard, including a few of our favourites; Salt Meats Cheese Broadway, BL Burgers and La Rosa The Strand.
We love walking through the markets on a Saturday morning, but sometimes that kind of time just doesn’t exist. Well, The Gourmet is basically your local food market, except you never even have to leave the house to get the goods. They’ve done the groundwork, developing solid relationships with farmers and producers. So you are not only getting the best fresh produce, but also cutting out the middlemen. Specifically, they sell seafood, meat and fresh fruit and vegetables and deliver it all in their innovative packaging, ensuring your food will remain ice-cold until you get home from work.
Eat Fit Food
Eat Fit Food offers pre-packaged meals that are nothing like the ones hiding in the freezer aisle of your local supermarket. Each package is made from locally farmed and ethically sourced seafood and meat, as well as fresh produce straight from their very own organic farm in the Southern Highlands of NSW. They also have gluten and dairy free options as well as vegetarian meals available. Their short term cleanses go above and beyond a juice cleanse in our books (because there is food and we are very hungry people) and we can confirm that the portion sizes are substantial, so you definitely won’t go hungry.
For that craft brew loving man (or woman) in your life, Brewquets is probably the perfect anniversary, graduation or ‘sorry for being a dick lately’ gift. Your brother will think you’re a legend and your other half won’t be able to resist your delicious apology, particularly when they realise that you just introduced them to their new favourite Australian brew. Wrapped in tissue paper and delivered in a cute hessian tote, you can personalise the card with your message just as you would when ordering flowers. Let’s be honest, this is the quickest way to win some cool girl points in your man’s office.
As if it wasn’t already enough that Doughnut Time has popped up on every second street corner, effectively taking Australia by storm. Well now they’ve gone and teamed up with Sherpa, launching a delivery service that will keep you in constant supply of sweet, doughy clouds of heaven. It is far too easy to order a sneaky six pack online and it’ll be delivered to your door in under two hours, which is even faster than an Iconic delivery (that’s FAST guys).
Thanks to the Paleo revolution, we all know that grass fed beef and lamb is simply better for us than regular meat and instead of getting technical we thought we would just introduce to you Crowd Carnivore. A crowd funding company who sources meat directly from the producer, Crowd Carnivore ensures that you get a great price for your meat, while the farmer is paid top dollar. Because they deserve it. Visit their website (https://crowdcarnivore.com.au) to join the club and get started.
The Little Grocery Service
Built from the desire to feed her own family well, Alison built The Little Grocery Service, which delivers abundant boxes of fresh produce in Sydney complete with weekly recipes and pro cooking tips. Channelling her experience gained from working in the food department at Vogue Entertaining and Travel, she visits the markets each week to source the highest quality, seasonal goods and packs them up into large boxes. As a beautiful bonus, Alison also includes a bunch of fresh blooms, half dozen eggs and a preserve or baked good.
My Food Bag
The perfect balance for the kitchen whizz who can’t be bothered with supermarkets, My Food Bag does all of legwork, so you can breeze on in, come dinnertime and take all of the glory for your delicious dinner. All you have to do it select the bag you want to order from their website and how frequently you want to receive it. Then let them work out what to do with it. Working with dieticians and nutritionists, all of the recipes are balanced, seasonal and portion controlled. You will receive your bag of fresh local produce, meat and fish along with a simple recipe card and then the magic is up to you.
