Greenling Delivers Food, Makes It Easier To Be A Better Person.

At its core, Greenling is a grocery delivery company. But it's not just any grocery delivery company. Their products are locally grown, organic and pretty much tops in quality.
The way Austin-born and new-to-Dallas company runs their business pretty much ensures that, too: After you place an order with them online, they go and pick up your request from local producers, and, before long, your order is perfectly prepared and cheerfully delivered to your doorstep. It helps, too, that they have tons of options to choose from, and that their website is super easy to navigate.
Our favorite of their options? The Local Box, which, fittingly, is also their most popular item.
"It's all super fresh, all local and all sustainably grown produce," says Greenling representative Angela Grella, and we're inclined to agree.
A nice bonus here, too: The contents of the Local Box rotate weekly. But the most charming aspect of the Local Box is in the details. Your order comes with a list of what's inside and where it came from, along with recipe ideas for you to use with the contents of your box.
Another solid option? The Quick-Shop Basket. These are fully customizable, too. You start with two choices -- the Just Fruit & Veggies basket or Grocery & Staples basket -- and you add or subtract items until your order is just right. The Grocery & Staples basket even offers a Gluten-Free Starter kit for those of you that have jumped on that bandwagon.
Other options include a party kit, an office kit and several meal kits. Hell, you can even order a 5-meal kit of locally grown produce and organic proteins that includes recipe cards and all you need to do is prepare your meals for the rest of the week.
It makes life a little easier, that's for sure. The fact that it promotes local produce, too? Well, that's just a bonus, really. A really, really sweet one, though.
