We don’t yet know the extent of COVID-19 and how it will affect us here in Talbot County. But, we were curious if local businesses are changing the way they’ve done things.
Whether you’re self-isolating, on quarantine, or too stressed to cook, we surveyed local restaurants about changes to their delivery options.
One of the exceptions, and the reason for this roundup of responses, was prompted by Eat Sprout’s email/posting from this morning: “Beginning immediately Sprout is offering free delivery to your door in Talbot County.” When questioned further, owner Ryan Groll said, “Whatever we can do to help the community. We can deliver anything from our café: bread, meals, soups, wraps, snacks, drinks, etc.” Eat Sprout can be reached by calling: (443) 223-0642.
Another change is being made by The BBQ Joint ((410) 690-3641), which said that although they didn’t deliver, they will be offering curbside pick-up service for at least the next week. A request should be made when the order is placed. Victory Garden Cafe is offering curb side pick up and free delivery to Easton. They will also deliver to Oxford with a $50.00 food order: 410.690.7356.
Coffee Trappe 410-476-6164 and Momma Maria’s in Trappe. 410-476-6266 will take your phone order with curbside pick up.
The Bagery 410-690-4188 or online offers curbside pickup.
The Galley in St. Michaels offers free delivery in St. Michaels and within a five-mile surrounding area. Latitude 38 will deliver in Oxford for a $5.00 fee.
Other services, such as Blue Heron Catering, provides catering and personal chef services. Beat the Rush Delivery offers to deliver food from groceries, farmers’ markets, or local eateries. They have special fees for seniors or those on subsidized income.
Potbelly is offering free delivery through March 29th via its app, Potbelly.com, GrubHub, and DoorDash. (Plus all orders are securely packaged with tamper-evident stickers).
Many restaurants, such as Headwaters Seafood and Grille, and Snifters, use DoorDash for their deliveries. Delivery fees vary.
In neighbors helping neighbors, 4 Sisters Food Truck have announced that they are offering a free platter to anyone in need in our community. They are located at 600 Dover Road in Easton They will also deliver free to the immediate Easton area and charges $5.00 for delivery to Trapp, Preston, St. Michaels, and Oxford.
Also, Bombay Tadka (443-515-0853), both in Easton and Cambridge, are offering free delivery to the immediate area and instituting a “Good Karma Special.” For every two entrees purchased they will will give one to a neighbors in need. Additional “Good Karma Specials” may be added to your order for $10.00.
The Amish Market in Easton will be open this week (March 19-21, 2020), however the dining area will not be open.
This list will, more than likely change, as the days and weeks pass, and new restrictions are either imposed or lifted. One thing is probably certain in this time of uncertainty, businesses will need to redefine ‘business as usual.’
