Organic produce isn’t just good for you, it’s good for the plants, the farmers, the animals. Really, it’s good for everyone involved. Which makes sense why it’s a little pricer than the other fruits, veggies, and produce at your local market. Fortunately, there are ways to save money on your organic goods — and you won't even have to leave the house. For this Dealspotr Top 5, we’re going to share the best organic grocery delivery services. So even if you’re lounging at home, at least the food you’re eating is good for you.

This company wants to do better, not just for your health, but for the planet's health too.
Imperfect Foods, $4.99 delivery fee
Just because it’s ugly, or weirdly shaped, or ya know, imperfect, doesn’t mean it can’t be eaten. In fact, Imperfect Foods loves weirdly shaped, ugly foods. This sustainable grocery delivery service curates a grocery list of food they think you’d like, and you can add to it as well. Imperfect Foods doesn’t care if it’s discontinued, has cosmetic imperfections, came from a surplus, or has a mismarked best-by date. As long as it’s organic or hasn’t expired, it could be yours. Because at the end of the day, food is food. Funny looking or otherwise.
Folks who live in the greater New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C., metropolitan areas know what a gem FreshDirect is. This northeastern grocery delivery service sources organic products that can be sent straight to your door. The produce is locally grown through partner Lancaster Farm Fresh Cooperative. Pick a delivery time that works for you, and FreshDirect will deliver fresh food to you straight from their state-of-the-art preparation facility.
Misfits Market, $30 minimum purchase
There are pros and cons to everything. Take organic fruits and vegetables, for example. On one hand they contain fewer pesticides and are good for the environment. But on the other hand, they’re a lot more expensive than regular produce. Misfits Market is an online grocery delivery service that provides superficial imperfections or cosmetic blemishes that are otherwise rejected from stores. And the best part? The food at Misfits Market is up to 40% off grocery store prices.
