EVG reader Michael Hirsch spotted this Amazon Fresh truck on Avenue A and East Third Street yesterday afternoon.
On Friday, Amazon launched its grocery delivery business on the East Coast with service for now to Park Slope.
According to Re/code, who first reported on the service here:
Amazon Fresh customers in the city who place orders before 10 am will receive deliveries later that same day; orders placed after that time will be delivered the following day. The service is known mainly for groceries, but also offers thousands of other items such as electronics and toys that are available for same-day delivery as well.
A spokeswoman declined to say when the service might be available in other parts of New York City, including Manhattan.
The driver told Michael that the service would begin in the East Village in the next few weeks.
Re/code noted that the company is storing Amazon Fresh food in a new warehouse in Avenel, N.J.
