Grocery Delivery Saves Moms' Time & Sanity

The summer of 2015 brought many grocery delivery options to Indy and moms took notice. As the prime shopper in most families; moms tend to spend a lot of time planning meals, making grocery lists & shopping. It is not a surprise that many of our CityMoms were quick to try out the many time-saving & convenient options. Here is a quick run-down of some of our favorites:




A long-time favorite of theCityMoms is local company Green Bean Delivery.

GBD works with local gardens and farmers to deliver fresh, sustainable produce, meat, dairy & pantry items that are in-season.

Why do our moms like GBD? It delivers the farmers market to your doorstep! For many it is important to know exactly where their food is grown, sourced or processed. GBD is very transparent and meets those needs.

Customize your bin or let GBD fill it with fresh, in-season produce. Their site is easy to navigate and they also provide recipes for all of that produce you will get in your bin.


CityMom Jennifer says-"I like to let them pick my produce so that my family gets to try fruits and veggies we would normally not pick on our own."

Here is a treat for our readers who want to try Green Bean Delivery:

Instacart is new to the grocery delivery game in Indy and continues to expand their service. So, if you are not in their delivery area yet, you may be soon.

How is Instacart different? Basically, Instacart sends a personal shopper to the store to shop for you. In Indy the store choices are Whole Foods, Marsh, Georgetown Market, Petco & Costco. {hint: a Costco membership is not needed, but the prices may be a bit higher} You can have your groceries delivered in as little as an hour or two or choose a time that works best for you. 


You can also choose to pick the groceries up yourself or have them delivered by your shopper. Either way you are asked to tip your shopper for their time. The shopper will text you with questions in regards to substitutions or other available options if an item is sold out. You also have the option of calling the shopper directly while they are in store to chat about your order.

CityMom Michelle says- "Instacart is a game changer. I can shop while looking into my cupboards so that I truly get what I need from the store. The recipes provided on the site are also very helpful when I need some help with my meal planning and the same day delivery is perfect when I need an item not planned for. I am actually spending less than going to the store on my own!"

Peapod has been delivering to Indy for roughly 5 years and is based out of Chicago. The service is easy and reliable which is something all of us moms appreciate. Unfortunately you miss out on the local Indy produce, meats & dairy but if you are a Chicago native you may appreciate getting some of your hometown goods shipped to your door. 

All orders are fulfilled out of Peapod's grocery warehouse so you can rest assured items will not be out of stock. You can choose to have your groceries delivered whole you are at home or away. If you choose an "unattended" delivery your order will be left on your doorstep in cooling bins that keep everything cold/frozen for up to 2 hours. 

Delivery is usually next day depending on when you place your order.

Kroger does deserve a mention even though they are not delivering to your doorstep. You can shop online and pull right up to have your groceries to your vehicle. It is also super easy to redeem Kroger digital coupons clipped right on their web site, manufacturer coupons clipped from mailers or use your Kroger loyalty card for more savings. 

CityMom Abigail has this to say about Kroger- "I love it because I can add items to my list throughout the week and pick-up any day I want. Even after completing my order I can still edit up until 24 hours before my pick-up time. Having my weekly list gives me and a good total for my finances and allows me to look for extra coupons and price match."
