Amazon Fresh is a subsidiary of Amazon which offers grocery, whole food, clothing, toys, and daily essentials delivery services. Amazon Fresh is available in more than two thousand cities including; most cities in the United States, Munich, London, Hamburg, India, Milan, Berlin, Singapore, and Tokyo.
Amazon Fresh partners with local specialty stores for the delivery of local items. Amazon Fresh is not available in random locations instead, specific parts of various metropolitan areas are targeted based on certain factors.
Amazon Fresh is only available to Amazon Prime members but not available to prime video members. Amazon Prime membership costs $119 per year. Once you have an Amazon Prime subscription, Amazon Fresh is made available to you at no extra cost. Prime household members and the guests of Prime members can shop Amazon Fresh.
This notwithstanding, if a customer has a valid SNAP EBT card, even without an Amazon Prime membership, he can receive free access to Amazon Fresh.

An interesting feature of Amazon Fresh is the Amazon Fresh Pickup. This feature enables customers to shop online and reserve the item for pickup at a later time.
