The “farmers market meets online grocery” service delivers locally sourced produce, eggs, dairy products, meat, and seafood, along with pantry items, baked goods, coffees, teas, and more.

For holiday time, there are also festive options like a 12-pack of Sweet Beginnings decorated gingerbread cookies ($19.99) and gift sets like the Confectionally Yours ultimate sampler box ($74.99) for chocolate fiends. But you can send anything on the site as a gift (free delivery if you spend $30 or more). Farm boxes of assorted produce (starting at $20) are a lovely present for home cooks, and a a nearly 8-pound Jimenez Family Farm lamb-leg roast ($154.92) would be a holiday dinner to remember.
