AURORA, Colo. Grocery shopping can be a big pain, especially when you don't have the time in the day to get it done. More companies in Colorado are working to make your life easier through produce delivery services.

Denver7 connected with a few local produce delivery companies. With "Door to Door Organics"you choose your produce box and then its delivered right to your doorstep. "Colorado Fresh Produce boxes up fruits and veggies and delivers them to locations for discounted group rates. Another option is "5280 Produce", offeringsmall and large produce boxes available for pickup.

For customers like Kristen Strait in Aurora, the produce delivery option is important for her schedule.

"I work two jobs and basically getting to the store or other farmers markets can get difficult," said Strait. It's time-consuming, costs money and costs gas."

Strait orders two boxes a week from ColoradoFresh Produce. Pricing for the boxes starts at $30,but she says its worth it.

That right there cuts out all of your time of walking through the store, figuring out what you want," said Strait.

At Door to Door Organics, for a family of three or more, youre looking at around $30 to $40 a week depending on the box size and your location. With Door to Door you can customize your box straight from your phone or computer.

Youre not paying for all of the different markups that are going to come with stores, youre getting it straight from the farmers market; straight from your farmers out here and youre supporting something thats here in Colorado," said Strait.

Founder of UGrocery app Eva Fry shared that the organic foods market sits at $50 billion right now with a 15 percent growth rate expected through 2021. Fry sourced her information from the Organic Trade Association.

Businesses like these could see an increase in demand with the rise in interest for organic food.
