Amazon announced today that it’s expanding its Whole Foods grocery delivery service to more places, including parts of New York City.
This service is a result of Amazon’s $13.7 billion acquisition of the Whole Foods Market in June of last year. In February, the company started putting that investment to use by announcing that it would begin delivering groceries in select cities within two hours. Today, the service expands to Prime members in Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Palm Beach, Long Island, lower Manhattan, and Brooklyn. Items eligible for delivery include fresh produce and other perishable goods like meats and dairy products.
Through the Prime Now program, each two-hour delivery is free with a minimum order of $35, and a one-hour delivery costs an additional $7.99. The service is available daily between 8AM and 10PM.

In June, Amazon expanded its Whole Foods delivery service to major cities like Boston, Chicago, Baltimore, San Antonio, Houston, and Minneapolis, so if your city is not listed yet, it could be coming very soon.
