This year FreshDirect is 15! And to celebrate 15 years of FD Thanksgivings, we are hosting 15 days of great giveaways, hot deals, can’t-miss recipes, and more!
We love to hear from our customers! Here are just a few of the kind words they’ve recently shared with us.
“Just received my first delivery & all I can say is WOW! I’m in awe.I placed my order yesterday & it was delivered today exactly when I requested & they even followed my special instructions. The berries were fresher than any I’ve seen in the stores all summer & there wasn’t the slightest dent in my loaf of bread. Everything about this order from start to finish was simply perfect! The prices were very reasonable & it was so easy. Plus, the delivery fee was 1/4 of the price it costs me to take Uber to the store. Why would I ever wanna go to the store again? Thank you FreshDirect!!! You have officially won over this customer!!!”

“Let’s talk grocery delivery services!! I recently tried FreshDirect and I was thrilled!! As much as I love to go grocery shopping, it’s getting hard as my pregnancy progresses and my 11 mo old learns to pull every price tag off the shelf! So I gave it a try! And I was pleasantly pleased- food was delicious, fresh, and packaged with care!”

“Guys — Best part about living in the city again? I just ordered from FreshDirect and all is right in the world!”

One of my favorite holidays, St. Patrick’s Day, is right around the corner, and I thought I’d let you in on a little family secret: Grandma Caley’s Famous Irish Soda Bread. No St. Patrick’s Day is complete without several loaves of this Irish treasure as part of your spread. The Caley recipe, of unknown provenance somewhere between the Celtic shores of Muir Èireann and the Isle of Man, has been in my family for generations; simple and customizable, it’s sure to delight your friends and family.
In addition to the traditional Irish Soda Bread, I’ll try out two interesting variations in hopes of finding a more “modernized” version of the recipe. With these recipes, the ingredients (which can all be found at FreshDirect), and a little bit of luck, you’ll find the ISB that’s perfect for you, even if your baking skills are a little, shall we say, green…
Back when I was a picky eater, I spent a lot of time feeling guilty about not eating enough vegetables.
I knew they were good for me, and I even knew I’d feel better when I ate them, but I just couldn’t do much more than eat a salad once or twice a week.
Now that I’ve welcomed the wonders of vegetables into my life (Brussels sprouts! Cucumbers!), my guilt has shifted.
Now it’s not bringing my lunch to work that makes me feel a tiny bit like a failure. …
But when my ingredients for Pasta with Ricotta, Herbs, and Lemon and White Bean, Red Onion, and Tomato Salad arrived this past Saturday (along with my grocery staples like orange juice, garlic, and arugula), all clearly labeled and smelling wonderful, I began to look forward to my recipe adventure….
It’s time for another confession: I don’t make shopping lists.
There are lots of reasons for this. There’s a large supermarket around the corner from my apartment, so forgetting something is never a tragedy.
I also enjoy going up and down every aisle, seeing what’s in stock and getting ideas. But there are two main factors in my lack of list-making: I don’t use recipes, and I’m lazy.
Recipes scare me. They’re supposed to make cooking easier, but they just make me panic. …
On the day of my first FreshDirect delivery, I was a bit wary of the two-hour window.
Nothing has a two-hour window. I’ve waited up to six hours for my couch, my cable and the gas man.
If coming to my house within a two-hour window is so easy, why doesn’t everyone do it?
Those were the thoughts running through my mind as I sat drinking coffee with my good friend Adrienne at Cocoa Bar, a cafe a few blocks away. And I think it must have been this bit of disbelief that kept me from checking my watch as frequently as I normally would if I had an appointment.
You can probably tell where this is going …
If you read my first post, you know I’m not much of a chef — at least not yet.
Though I’m just beginning to appreciate the joys of cooking, one thing I’ve always loved is shopping. I love supermarkets. I love cruising up and down each aisle, from fruits and vegetables to frozen foods, seeing what’s new and what looks good (and what’s on sale).
I have many friends who are devoted fans of FreshDirect, and I’ve always responded to their enthusiastic recommendations by reminding them of my affection for the grocery store. But now that I’ve completed my first order, I know the things they should have said to convince me:…
My name is Erica, and I have a confession to make: I am not a foodie.
I love food, but for many, many years, the foods that I loved could have been counted on two hands. Chicken and rice (though only if made by mom or grandma). Pizza (just cheese, please). McDonald’s. Vanilla soft-serve ice cream. Bagels.
I was picky, but I was happy. I loved my handful of foods, and I could have eaten them — and nothing else — for the rest of my life.
I never understood why other people would gasp in horror, their mouths hanging open, when I told them I didn’t like chocolate or that I had never eaten bacon. …
