We’re fans of grocery delivery. Between balancing work, play, and everything else, it’s easy for grocery shopping to fall through the cracks. Which is why we were excited when Instacart, a grocery delivery app, launched in Denver late last year—and even more thrilled when the service added Marczyk Fine Foods to its queue.
Soon you can count on another app to further help combat the time-consuming shopping conundrum: Artizone. When the service launches this month, it will take locally focused grocery to a whole new level.

Similar to Instacart, Artizone (the name is play on the word “artisan”) is an online market that delivers items right to your door. However, the shop exclusively carries goods—farm-raised meats, local organic produce, and small-batch breads from small local tradesmen. The website is easy to use, organized by aisles (just like a grocery store), and delivers 24/7.
While Artizone has yet to announce a complete list of the products it will stock, we know the company is partnering with Western Daughters Butcher Shoppe, Seafood Landing, and St. Kilian’s Cheese Shop and Market. Artizone already operates in Chicago and Dallas—sourcing products from more than 200 specialty shops—and judging by its Yelp reviews, which give the company four-and-a-half (out of five) stars, its customer base seems pretty pleased.
Stay tuned for Artizone’s Mile High launch, slated for sometime this month.
