Local Eatery Now Offering Grocery Options in Response to Pandemic

To adapt to changing demands brought on by the global COVID-19 pandemic, an eatery in Reston is adapting to offer a selection of grocery items.

Founding Farmers Reston (1904 Reston Metro Plaza) now delivers groceries and allows customers to sign up for a curbside pickup time slot, according to its website. Called Founding Farmers Market and Grocery, the service will offer booze to go, meals typically made through the eatery’s kitchen and groceries.

Market products include bread, snacks, milk, eggs, meats, pre-sliced deli items, fresh produce, desserts like cookie dough and household items such as paper towels, hand soap, laundry detergent and trash bags.

The grocery market program began on April 17, according to the eatery’s Facebook page and continues to expand its menu.

Customers can choose delivery or curbside pickup time from 8 a.m. until 9 p.m., according to the website.

With each grocery order, a $6.99 surcharge will apply to the total, the website said, regardless of the total cost.

Those interested in testing out this service can fill out a virtual cart through Founding Farmer’s online portal and choose a time for pickup or delivery.

As a way to support people struggling during this time, Founding Farmers is offering 50% off for first responders, those in the medical field and employees, the website said.
