New York City peeps have become accustomed to getting their groceries delivered. If you're in Manhattan or one of its boroughs, chances are you don't schlep -- you click. If you order using FreshDirect or Peapod by Stop & Shop it looks like you're in luck. If you move to Essex county, New Jersey, your groceries will likely come to your (new) door.
A quick, informal, check of zip codes found FreshDirect delivered to all of the following:
Bloomfield, NJ - zip code 07003
Glen Ridge, NJ - zip code 07028
Maplewood, NJ - zip code 07040
Montclair, NJ - zip codes 07042 and 07043
South Orange, NJ - zip code 07079
Peapod by Stop & Shop doesn't show its zip codes in a list format though a spokesperson for the company confirmed that grocery delivery is available to the above zip codes.
Hurray! Keep in mind, in addition to your virtual shopping, there will be many local supermarkets, grocery stores, specialty stores, food markets, and farmer's markets nearby... a great way to meet people offline in your new community.
