Trying to avoid the supermarket?
As the lockdown rumbles on, now is a great time to try out a grocery drop-off, especially if you’re cocooning or juggling work with childcare and homeschooling.
We now have more delivery options than ever in Cork and you can access the best of fresh produce, meat, vegetables and other items at the click of a mouse to have it delivered to your door.
It’s so convenient, you might never go back to the weekly trolley schlep.
Here are five Cork businesses to order from this week:
1. Stock the pantry
If you want to treat someone who is cocooning to a special delivery of delicious snacks and meal additions to fill the pantry during the lockdown, The Roughty Foodie in The English Market has just the thing.
Give them a call and fill a box with your choice of coffees, cheese, relish, local honey, fudge and chocolate, as well as a variety of other treats, and they’ll deliver any box over €75 within the city.
Call Margo on 087 6352415 to place an order.
