FAQ

Do you deliver to me?

  • The delivery radius of our Green City Market Delivered program extends to the North and West city limits and South to Roosevelt + 16th Street. As we continue to grow, we will look to extend our delivery radius to reach as many Chicagoland Green City Market shoppers as possible!

    If you reside outside of this radius, we encourage you to check with our farmers at greencitymarket.org/gcmgoesvirtual to see if an individual farmer can deliver directly to you.

How will I know what time of day my delivery order will arrive?

  • You may indicate your preferred delivery window in the app when you place your order. If you provide your cell phone number, you can also receive text updates from your driver alerting you of when your delivery is en route and has arrived at your home. You'll receive a text when your driver is getting close and when your delivery has arrived. 

Do I have to be home at the time of the delivery?

  • Nope! If you happen to be on your fifth walk around the block with the dog and not home at the time of the delivery, your driver will leave your package at the drop-off point you indicated in the app, and you'll receive a text alerting you of your delivery's arrival. 
  • If you know you won't be home at the time of delivery, you can leave out a cooler so your delivery driver can safely leave 

What do I do if I missed the order window for my desired delivery/pick-up day?

  • If you happen to miss getting in your order in time for your desired delivery or pick-up day, don't worry! All is not lost — in order to accommodate demand, deliveries and pick-up are now available twice weekly. We recommend setting your alarm for the next delivery window.
    • Delivery and pick-up days are Wednesdays and Saturdays; the GCM marketplace will open for orders on WhatsGood at 8 am on Tuesdays for delivery/pick-up on the following Saturday and 8 am on Friday for delivery/pick-up on the following Wednesday. After ordering opens at 8 am on Tuesdays and Fridays, the GCM marketplace will remain open until we reach capacity. 
  • When we reach capacity for orders on GCM Delivered, this does not mean that our farmers have sold out of product! While the Green City Market team is hard at work to grow the number of orders we can accept in a given week, our farmers still have plenty of food for you — and you can still source local and get food delivered to your home by ordering direct from our farmers. We have over 30 local vendors with delivery and convenient pick-up options all over the Chicago area, and we highly recommend placing orders directly with our farmers if you happen to miss the order window for GCM Delivered or if you live outside of our current delivery radius. 

How we're keeping you and your orders safe

  1. All deliveries will be contactless. Please respect our delivery drivers' space and stay six feet away (you can wave or say thank you from the window, though!) 
  2. As much as we love reusable bags and containers, we will be using single-use packaging for sanitary reasons. All containers will be recyclable, and deliveries will be packaged in brown paper bags. (Pro tip: if you compost at home or participate in a home pick-up compost program, you can compost the paper bags! Healthy Soils Compost is offering $10 off your first home compost pick-up to GCM shoppers!) 
  3. All equipment and surfaces involved in the aggregation space and in the delivery itself will be routinely disinfected — we're talking hand trucks, tables, counters, freezers, coolers, printers, door handles, car door handles — everything will be meticulously disinfected for your safety and the safety of our team. 
  4. All team members and delivery drivers will be wearing gloves, changed regularly throughout the day. 
  5. Your food will be handled by a limited number of individuals — farm-fresh food touches so many fewer hands than food purchased at the grocery store, so you can feel great about re-stocking your pantry and fridge directly from our local farmers.
  6. There will be no cash handling under any circumstances. Orders will be pre-paid for via credit card on the app.
