Those organic fruit won't last that long.

Since it's Prime, it'll get there in 4-6 days..but hey once shipped it took 2-4 hours..

This is a great move in a positive direction; I've recently taken to using FarmDrop in the UK to get Farmer's Market produce delivered and must say it's a game changer versus trudging across the borough to the market itself. I ordinarily am quite anti-Amazon due to the general piss-poor reliability of their delivery, but if you can get a specific 2-hour window on the weekend when you're at home it could really be handy.

Before you get too excited, this Prime Now extra is currently only available in four US cities: (Makes sense)

Austin (Of course)
Cincinnati (Huh?)
Dallas (Okay)

and Virginia Beach (??)

I did a walk through a Whole Foods store a few years ago. I gasped at the high prices, didn't buy anything. The food at the hot food area did smell delicious though.

Ok, so I'm not the only one who thinks they get a better grade of supplier for their milk.

///That has a WF about 3 miles away, but on the way to/from work!  :D

They are probably trying to test it out in slightly smaller markets before going to larger cities (not that Dallas or Austin are 'small', but in relation to NYC and such). It might also be in relation to where Whole Foods/Amazon has warehouses?

I'm sincerely hoping it comes to Atlanta soon.

They'll just throw your shiat in your front yard to be seen by everyone driving by. Or just say business door was not open.

I haven't tried Whole Foods milk, but I have learned that I don't like milk from a transparent or translucent container.  I thought I was imagining things that I thought milk from cardboard cartons tasted better, but a little research showed that exposure to light (sunlight, florescent, or LED light) does negatively impact the flavor.  https://phys.org/news/2015-03-sunlig​ht​-flavour.html

Also, I've talked to people I know who have bought groceries from Amazon Fresh and have heard complaints that everything is thrown into one container and some foods get smashed.  Any non-anecdotal evidence that anyone is aware of regarding the quality of food as well as the quality of shipping from Amazon Fresh or this new Whole Foods delivery?

The main PrimeAir hub is in Cincy.  So it would make sense to have Cincinnati be a test market to test the concept.

Amazon Prime Now, not plain old Amazon Prime.
