Supporting Grocery Delivery Alternatives in Bogotá

In a time when we are not supposed to leave our houses and the whole economy has been affected, we should support one another. Nowadays, we can count on several applications that allow us to get groceries delivered. However, there are way more options beyond Rappi or Uber Eats. We would like to share with you a range of local shops, producers, farmers, and small businesses that have shifted their operations in order to deliver their products to your doorstep. 

From the Farm to Your House

They work hand-in-hand with local producers and you can order baskets that range from ($10.000/$2.50 USD) to ($63.000 COP/$15 USD), or individual items at a fair price online here

Other businesses and suppliers had to reinvent themselves in order to reach individuals instead of restaurants, and now, they are offering grocery delivery in Bogotá. Here are a few options to look at:

  • If you fancy some organic greens, Villa Paz El Hortelano is the place to get them. Additionally, they also sell vegetables, sprouts, fermented products, and salads, among other things. You can discover products from $7.000 COP/$2 USD for a bag of mustard spouts to $23.000 COP/$6 USD for a trout. After you complete an online registration, you can get the delivery.  
  • On the other hand, ViveAgro sells washed and disinfected products, ready for consumption. They partnered up with the NGO Fundación Hogar Integral, so whenever you buy a box of their products (fruits, vegetables, root veggies, herbs, etc.) the NGO gets one too. Their offerings and prices range from a small box of fruits ($62,200 COP/$15 USD) to a large box ($89,800 COP/$22 USD) or a small box of vegetables ($69,800 COP/$17 USD) to a large box ($98,400 COP/$24 USD). They deliver their boxes in different sizes and varieties on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.

The following options offer a way to support farmers with fair pay and working conditions, so both parties benefit the consumers and the producers, without an intermediary.

You can contact them through their Whatsapp number, complete your order online, get your bill, and then provide your proof of payment. 
  • Siembra por Metro harvests organic products and works hand-in-hand with farmers doing “crop scheduling,” which enables the producer to ensure they have the necessary quantity of each product available according to the needs of their customers.
