Grocery delivery in Baltimore suburbs?

Is there a supermarket or grocery delivery service much like Fresh Direct in New York that caters to the Baltimore suburbs? My non-driving mother needs this.

Thanks.

    I think Giant has a service called "Peapod". I have never used it, but I have seen it advertised. Depending on the economics of it "Eddie's" on either Roland Avenue or Charles Street deliver. Eddie's is a super fine grocery store. I live in Pikesville and that still falls in Eddie's delivery area, but you would have to call and find out about where she lives. Good luck. You could also check Graul's. They have stores in more areas than Eddie's, but I'm not certain if they deliver.

      My neighbor occasionally uses Peapod (Giant) and I've used it in the past. It worked OK but I found the delivery times did not match my schedule. Safeway has also been advertising a delivery service as well, but I haven't tried it yet.

        Safeway's delivery service is fine (I didn't have any problems and the driver was friendly) but they don't take coupons. For me, the savings on gas and time was completely negated by the fact that I couldn't use the coupons. If that's not an issue then I'd say use them. Peapod was fine the last time I used it years ago but I had to keep on them to get my account balanced right.

        the downside to Peapod is that you end up shopping at Giant. On the other hand, hopefully the delivery drivers aren't as surly as the clerks in the stores.
