From Web-Based Farmers' Markets to Online Vegan Butchers

These online grocer concepts range from web-based farmers' markets to vegan butcher shops that offer a range of tasty meat alternatives. As consumers become more health and budget-conscious, their support of local food businesses is booming. While web retailers like FarmersWeb connect farmers and food buyers in New York state, Foodland Ontario's online platform spotlights the province's most popular farms and encourages Canadians to support local business owners.

Additional standouts include Dean & Deluca's refined food website that allows patrons to browse new products and recipes before finalizing their online purchase. Furthermore, Loblaws' 'President's Choice Discoveries' platform successfully promotes the affordable lifestyle brand with recipes, decor ideas and exclusive discount offers that can be accessed by its members.

Finally, online grocers like Thrive Market appeal to health-conscious foodies and offer an array of wholesome and organic products to e-shop visitors.
