NewsHome for the Holidays Gift Boxes

Posted Nov 19, 2020

So you’re home for the holidays. Literally. This season, Green City Market presents a bold new way to holiday. Whether you’re working from home, navigating remote learning, or getting real friendly with Netflix’s “recommended for you” offerings, you deserve a break.

Green City Market is here to help get one holiday ‘to-do’ off of your list: gift shopping!

This year, Green City Market is offering four curated boxes featuring seasonal, locally-sourced products available for home delivery and curbside pick-up on December 9, 16, and 22. You can also send a box to a loved one as a gift (delivery available in Chicago only).  

With GCM’s Home for the Holidays gift boxes, you can skip the supermarket crowds and opt for a safe, sustainable way to stock up on seasonal goods and support local farmers and producers while you’re at it. Boxes include everything you need to craft an Insta-worthy shareable snacks, a cozy (and potentially boozy) brunch, and a good-for-your-gut mocktail kit featuring kombucha and fresh herbs. 

The best part? You can order a Home for the Holidays gift box right alongside your weekly grocery order on GCM Delivered. Just navigate to the “gifts” section in WhatsGood and add a box to your cart! 

We’ll follow up after you place your order to arrange for your gifts to be delivered to the doorstep of your choosing or you can pick gifts up from our office in Avondale.
