Loving Fresh Direct!!


A few days ago, Fresh Direct included my town in their delivery system. FINALLY! I’ve been waiting almost 10 years to order from these people!! It was primarily Manhattan based. Then it trickled to Queens… the DAY I moved out of Astoria. I wanted to CRY. I was SO CLOSE! Even tried to get my mother to order from them so I could live vicariously through her. She wasn’t buying it.

Life goes on. I have children, start blogs… yada yada yada and here we are.

Earlier this week, we receive a direct mailer from Fresh Direct saying they now service parts of Long Island. I just about started to cry!! FINALLY. FINALLY!!!!

I sat down and put in my first order. Fresh mozzarella, sourdough bread, Rosa Mexicana chips and guacamole, and a TON of these 4-minute meals. Bill has been reading about them – so we gave a few a shot. I can’t wait for lunch today!!

  1. OMG!! How is it? Fresh Direct started delivering it to my area as well. The sign on the LIE tortured me bc they never delivered to my zip code. Is it worth it?

    1. its all really good. the prices are comparable to stores. in fact i noticed fresh direct had cheaper than key food on a few things? want to see about using coupons… but so far so good
