Relay Foods expanding to Fredericksburg

Local residents will soon be able to order groceries online and pick them up at Hurkamp Park in downtown Fredericksburg.

Charlottesville-based Relay Foods recently announced an expansion into the Fredericksburg market. The local pickup service will begin Oct. 7.

Relay Foods focuses on natural, organic and locally sourced foods, but the company also offers a full array of products found at traditional bricks-and-mortar grocery stores. Its suppliers include Whole Foods Market, SuperValu and a large variety of smaller farms and specialty shops.

The company’s truck will be at Hurkamp Park between 4 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. every Monday and Thursday starting Oct. 7. Additional pickup days could be added later based on market demand.

People who order online through can pick up their groceries at any time during those hours. Their groceries will be bagged and ready for pickup upon their arrival, said Kevin Kurzendoefer, Relay’s senior vice president of operations. Frozen foods are kept frozen, and refrigerated items are kept cool in coolers with dry ice. Payments are made online as part of the ordering process.

Relay Foods has distribution centers in Charlottesville, Richmond and the Washington area. Fredericksburg will be serviced from the Richmond fulfillment center.

We’ll have more details on this in Saturday’s Free Lance-Star.
