What is Founding Farmers Market & Grocery?
Founding Farmers Market & Grocery is a one-stop online shop for you and your whole family – with chef-prepared meals, daily groceries, and critical household necessities – all delivered curbside to your car or right to your doorstep, contact-free.
We are so glad you are here! We are evolving with the times to provide you, our guests and everyone across our communities, with everything you need to stay home, healthy, and well-fed. Our menus include preservative-free prepared foods, hot family meals, fruits & veggies, pantry staples, meats & cheeses, freshly baked breads and dessert, house-churned ice cream, our house-roasted coffee, wine, beer, bottled craft cocktails, and spirits in some locations. We are also carrying a unique selection of plant-based medicine from Apothékary and an assortment of CBD products from Every Day Optimal.
Every dollar of revenue from our Market & Grocery is going directly to support our working teams, with the hope that the more orders we receive, the sooner we can rehire more of our laid-off employees. We appreciate your continued support and business.
How do I order?
All Market & Grocery orders can be made through our online ordering system. You will first select restaurant location, pick a date and time for your pick up or delivery, and provide your telephone number and/or address. If it is your first time ordering with us, you may be sent a text with a verification code to make sure we have your accurate information. Then you can access our full menu and make your selections. When you are finished, you can review your cart, and fill out payment information. Once you have completed payment, your receipt will load onto your browser. Please enter your email at the bottom of the page to receive a copy of your receipt, which will have your pick up date, time, and location.

Can you deliver alcohol?
According to state laws, in some of our locations we can deliver alcohol when purchased WITH food. The person receiving your order must be at least 21 years old. We will check your ID through your house window. In Virginia, we can deliver wine, beer, and bottled craft cocktails. In Maryland and DC, we are able to deliver wine, beer, spirits, and bottles of our house-made craft cocktails. In Pennsylvania, you can pick up beer and wine curbside, but we cannot deliver any alcohol.
Is your Founding Farmers restaurant still open?
Yes! All of our restaurants -- Founding Farmers, Farmers Fishers Bakers, Farmers & Distillers – are still open for contact-free curbside pick up and delivery every day. We are working together to do everything we can to help #flattenthecurve and, along the way, ensure we do our part to support and feed our communities and our team. Our restaurant kitchens will keep making food for our restaurant take out and delivery guests, and for our Market & Grocery, and we’ll be sure to get it to you as safely as we can.
What health & safety precautions are you taking?
The health and safety of our guests and our team is our top priority. We have expanded all of our protocols following the guidance of health officials and complying with all sanitation recommendations made by the CDC and WHO. For your safety, and the safety of our team, we have built a system that is contact-free from start to finish. If you come to pick up your order, we will place your food directly in your trunk or back seat. And wave at you. For delivery, we will leave it outside of your house. To learn more about how we are managing our food safety and sanitation protocols, please go HERE. To hear directly from Co-Owner, Dan Simons, as he answers a series of community questions about our health and safety practices as we continue to operate during COVID-19, go to YouTube video HERE.
Who is doing your delivery?
Our original Founding Farmers team members are delivering for our Market & Grocery, as well as cooking and managing all of our operations. We are proud to be able to support as much of our team as we can and continue to bring some of our laid-off team members back to support our delivery. As we grow, if we get overwhelmed by our orders, we may borrow support from one of our delivery platforms to provide timely service, but we will quickly adjust our operations and bring more of our team back on board. Thanks to your orders, we are able to keep employing our team during these challenging times. We appreciate your support.
How much Founding Spirits Hand Sanitizer can I purchase?
With a purchase of $30 or more from our Market & Grocery, you can purchase one 750 ml bottle OR two of our smaller 2 oz bottles. We are working as fast as we can to make Founding Spirits Hand Sanitizer for all of our guests and to support our communities, also delivering bulk quantities to local hospitals and government agencies.
How do I add to an order to an order that I've already placed?
