You can tap into delivery capabilities through Amazon Prime Now. Amazon Prime Now is a feature available to Amazon Prime members.
The delivery window will be open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Check out the Amazon Prime Now link above to see if delivery is available for you. According to Amazon, you can also determine if you are in the delivery radius by chirping at Alexa, "Alexa, shop Whole Foods."
Amazon's $13.7 billion acquisition of Whole Foods was a drop in the ocean for the tech supergiant. Amazon's market cap has been hovering around $970 billion.
The move is part of a greater effort to expand the number of cities in Amazon's delivery program to 38. Amazon has plans to keep rolling out Whole Foods delivery via Prime across the country.
