My wife and I had concerns about going to the grocery store and staying safely away from others, in addition to having difficulty finding proteins and other grocery items in the stores.
So, we asked a few people if they’d be interested in buying groceries through Urban and very quickly, we had enough ordered to bring in a whole shipment!
We figure other folks may be in the same boat and would rather not go out in public, so we created this. We’re really proud to be a part of a great community and are trying to do our part to support it.
Here’s how it works…
- Sign up and receive a list of our current Market items
- Once you signed up for the newsletter above, you should receive a list of items from our market in one to two days. Please check your spam folder if you don’t see it in your inbox. In the newsletters we let you know what new items are coming in or what we’re working on.
- To place an order online you can use this link or find the online menu under our menu tab on the home page. You can choose to pick-up your order or have it delivered. Orders of $50 or more receive free delivery. However, there is a limit to the delivery area – if you have special circumstances where you must have it delivered and you’re outside of our area please call 727-623-9823 and ask to speak to a market person to explain your situation. We can’t promise we’ll be able to accommodate but we’ll try.
- You can also walk in to the market during open hours and have a market employee put together your order or shop yourself. Keep in mind not all items are held in the market, some are held in the back that isn’t open to the public, or some items take some time to put together like hand cut steaks.
- If you have trouble doing any of the following you can also email [email protected]."
In addition to our grocery service, URBAN Brew & BBQ and our neighbors at The Floribbean are still open for takeout. Orders for pickup can be placed online at www.urbanbrewandbbq.com and www.thefloribbean.com.
Both are also offering takeout delivery by utilizing unemployed hospitality workers. Existing delivery services take 30% of the revenue from restaurants so we’re trying to encourage customers to use delivery services offered by the restaurants themselves and keep the money local.
