Whole Foods Groceries Are Now Delivered by Amazon

Amazon announced on Thursday that it will begin delivering groceries from Whole Foods Market through Prime Now in four USA cities today. The company will roll out the service to more cities later in the year.

Whole Foods deliveries are now available from 8am to 10pm, and Amazon claims that customers will be able to shop for "thousands" of items.

Amazon bought the Whole Foods market chain in June for $13.7 billion.

While this new service is likely to delight Amazon Prime customers craving some Whole Foods goodness, it's not the only way to have groceries delivered straight to your door. If you're based in one of those four cities and are wondering how to order Whole Foods from Amazon, head to the Prime Now website and click "Whole Foods Market" under "Shop By Store". The 365 Everyday Value items at Whole Foods are now the second leading private label brand for Amazon.

Amazon has introduced two-hour free delivery from Whole Foods Market to members of Prime in Austin, Texas, Cincinnati, Ohio, Dallas, Texas and Virginia Beach, Virginia.

Amazon lowered prices at Whole Foods on a range of kitchen staples, including ground beef, rotisserie chicken and avocados. Why would someone pay extra for Instacart or Shipt delivery when they can get their weekly groceries delivered for free with their Prime membership?

Though this is a major integration between Amazon and Whole Foods, it's not the only exchange between the two. Prime customers get free shipping if the order totals at least $35; as well, customers can choose one-hour shipping for an additional $7.99 Dollars.

Once the orders are picked, they will be packaged accordingly and then will be handed to the Amazon Flex delivery drivers.

Prime Now is a service that's available exclusively to Prime members, and it's free for them for orders $35 and up. In contrast, Whole Foods orders will be filled by pickers who will actually go down the aisles of nearby Whole Food stores.

Consumers are increasingly turning to apps and online options to facilitate grocery deliveries, rather than making a trip to the supermarket.
