News and notes from the San Antonio food scene
The Southtown grocery store vacuum finally has been filled. With its hardwood floors, exposed brick, and large front windows, Delivery Market, 709 S. Alamo, has the trappings of an old-time grocery store. And most importantly, it has beer and wine.
Yes, there are other goods, including deli sandwiches, salads, canned goods, snacks, and cigars, which are encased in a large humidor.
Delivery Market lives up to its name: They deliver. For orders more than $25, delivery is free. Smaller orders carry a $2.50 fee during the day, and $5 at night in downtown and Southtown.
For those who choose to eat there, dining tables are available outside for customers.
Delivery Market is open Monday to Friday 10am-10pm, and Sunday 11am-4pm.
