Good choices often seem to necessitate trade-offs: Making it to your daughter’s game means skipping the Saturday farmers’ market; fitting in a workout means picking up takeout on the way home. A few new online services for buying food in the D.C. Metro area are reducing the costs—in time, money and worry—of making wholesome food choices, helping to conserve valuable energy for healthy pursuits outside the kitchen.

Relay Foods combines a farmers’ market, grocery store and artisanal shop, offering everything from locally grown produce and fresh-baked bread to national cereal brands and Seventh Generation cleaning products. The one-stop shopping experience, which features basics and specialty items, eliminates running multiple errands. Relay promises to carefully hand-select the freshest and best quality groceries available and offers home delivery for a fee or free pickup at several convenient locations.

Consumers that want a little more help in the kitchen can look to healthy, pre-prepared meal kits. Hello Fresh and Plated both offer a selection of menu options that are prepared to order for home delivery.

For more information, contact Relay Foods at 202-618-6048 or RelayFoods.com; Hello Fresh at [email protected] or HelloFresh.com; and Plated at 917-525-2399 or Plated.com.
