Amazon and Whole Foods Market just expanded grocery pickup service in a few cities — and that includes Fort Worth.

Fort Worth customers can now shop online through Whole Foods Market's selection of produce, bakery, dairy, meat, seafood, floral, and everyday staples and pick up their order in as little as 30 minutes, without leaving their car.

To use the grocery pickup service, Prime members place their order via the Prime Now app and choose the pickup option at checkout.

After arriving at the Whole Foods Market store, customers park in a reserved pickup spot, and a Prime Now shopper places groceries into their car.

Customers who signal that they're on their way in the Prime Now app will have their groceries ready as they arrive.

The pickup service is free as long as the order is $35 or more, and the desired timeframe is an hour. If you want a rush service of 30 minutes, the service is $4.99.

Whole Foods Market VP Christina Minardi says in a release that "for our customers in Fort Worth ... it's just another way we're making it even easier for more customers to enjoy Whole Foods Market’s healthy and organic food."

There are three Whole Foods Markets in the Fort Worth area: Waterside in southwest Fort Worth, Colleyville Downs in Colleyville, and on Lamar Boulevard in Arlington.

Pickup is available daily from 8 am-10 pm. For more information, visit www.primenow.com.

Amazon and Whole Foods Market also launched home delivery in a host of cities including Detroit, St. Louis, Tampa, and Tulsa. The service is now available in 48 cities, with plans for continued expansion across the U.S. throughout 2018.
