One of the things I miss about life in New York is the convenience of things. You can walk to most places. You have public transportation for when you can’t walk. And you can order in just about anything.
In many parts of Nairobi, delivery is an option. For me, on the edge of the city, it’s not easy. So, I’m really happy when I find someone or someplace that can deliver to me. Enter greenspoon, my latest find!
Greenspoon is an online grocery and beer/wine seller. You simply go online, pick what you want, pay (various types of mobile money (I use Mpesa), Visa, or MasterCard), and then your items are delivered to you. You get it the next day if you order before 3pm. It’s that easy!
They sell a wide variety of items. Everything is from artisan producers and local farmers. Not everything is always in stock—but that’s part of the deal when you’re shopping from artisan producers, plus the site is well designed and it’s clear when things are out of stock.
If you’re in Nairobi and want to get great food brought right to your doorstep, check out greenspoon.
