Instacart + Whole Foods Market (Northern Virginia)

I actually like grocery shopping but with a 3 year old, 22 month old, and a 2 week old, it’s a little tough to get out of the house these days. But, we all keep eating and the food keeps disappearing. That’s why I jumped on the Instacart bandwagon. I can still shop at Whole Foods, but I don’t have to worry about taking my babes to the store (at least for now).

Instacart is now delivering to all Whole Foods in Northern Virginia. It’s easy to shop – just download the app – and add your favorite items to the cart. You can write notes to your shopper (I love firm fruit, so I always note that) and they can send you questions/pictures if there’s something you’re not sure of. All products come from your local Whole Foods Store so you can be confident in what you’re buying (occasionally they come from the warehouse, but that’s uncommon). It’s easy and convenient, and such a blessing when you’re in a bind.

To celebrate the launch of Instacart in all Northern Virginia Whole Foods, take $10 off your first delivery. Use code WFMNOVA4 at checkout.

Disclosure: I have a partnership with Whole Foods Market and was compensated for my work, but all words and opinions are my own.
