“Announcing FieldtoCity, a 7 day/week local grocery delivery service
A specialty online grocery store that offers locally sourced goods (like those you’d find at the Dupont Farmer’s Market) is now serving your area with delivery seven days a week. FieldtoCity.com delivers milk, meat and produce as well as beer and wine to your doorstep the same day that you place an order on our website. Seasonal fare such as pasture-laid eggs and vegetables from local farms are listed on their frequently updated online shopping cart. We guarantee all our products, including beer and wine.”
Their Web site says:
FieldtoCity is the first District of Columbia-based business to present a selection of locally and seasonally sourced products on a user-friendly website and combines a simple ordering process with a highly professional, same-day delivery service.
Our use of the internet enables rapid delivery of local food products, meaning ultimate freshness. Our online shopping cart can be navigated within a matter of minutes– a few clicks, basic contact info, and your order is on the way! We update our product offerings daily, so during the Mid Atlantic growing season, it’s possible for our produce to be sold the same day that it leaves the farm. That is the essence of FTC.

Wow this is huge news. Timor Bodega, which I once called the greatest bodega in the city was located at 1818 2nd Street NW.
For the regulars will you miss the bodega or will the online service be just as good? [Apparently the storefront will remain open, even better.] The good news is now folks who live in other neighborhoods can take advantage as well.
