I'm not saying that Plumgood Food actually engineered the gas shortage in Middle Tennessee any more than I'm saying these people did. But when the Fox fuel tanks were on E this weekend, the purple truck sure looked like a hero, pulling into our driveway with local and organic produce, fresh chicken, and Purity milk and ice cream.
Ever since the online grocer kicked its delivery fee this summer, I've been increasingly tempted to log on and order up. So far, the service has been consistently excellent. I placed an order at 9 p.m. on Friday night and had groceries by noon the next day. Produce—specifically corn, broccoli and green beans—has been better than anything I've hand-picked in the store, and the prices on many items are comparable to the supermarket.
Originally founded as an organic grocer, Plumgood has increasingly expanded its offerings to include thousands of mainstream products, from potato chips and ice cream to diapers and paper towels. If I could make one suggestion, I would ask them to start delivering Lazzaroli's Pasta. And of course, gas.
Any other requests for Plumgood?
