On the heels of Prime Day, Amazon is extending grocery delivery from Whole Foods through Prime Now in new markets across Florida, including Fort Lauderdale, Miami and Palm Beach, as well as parts of Long Island and select areas in New York City, beginning with lower Manhattan and Brooklyn.
Prime members in those cities can shop through Prime Now for bestselling items including fresh produce, meat and seafood, everyday staples and other locally sourced items from Whole Foods.
The service will expand to additional neighborhoods in New York City and across the U.S. throughout 2018, according to a statement.
The move comes as Walmart just expanded its Postmates grocery delivery partnership to Los Angeles and is beginning to promote its same-day delivery option for groceries in New York.
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 8 am and 10 pm.
