The Fourth of July is nearly here and while your travel plans may be canceled, that doesn’t mean you can’t bring elements of the place you were supposed to visit right to your home. What better way to do that than by eating cuisine native to the area? There’s a food delivery service that actually ships meals and treats from some of your favorite, independent eateries across the nation straight to your door.
Goldbelly will let you order gourmet food and gift baskets for you and your loved ones to enjoy. The service, which has been around since 2013, gives you the opportunity to indulge in a salted honey pie from The Grey in Savannah, Georgia, or slice into a freshly made bread loaf from Tartine Bakery in San Francisco, California.
How Goldbelly works.
Essentially, it’s the middleman between you and iconic eats created by some of the country’s most treasured establishments. For example, if you’re craving a bagel from New York City’s own Essa Bagel but you live in Montana, Goldbelly will get it to you. The best part? Most food items ship for absolutely free. The only catch is, you can’t just order one or two bagels, you’ll have to order like two dozen.

However, if you’re hosting a small get together to celebrate the holiday, you will have plenty of food to go around and leftovers. Another thing you could bring to your small—and hopefully outdoor—gathering is a BBQ feast. Who better to rely on than Joe’s Kansas City BBQ to deliver a hearty serving of ribs, brisket, and burnt ends?
And for dessert, why not order a sweet yet perfectly tart key lime pie from Kermit’s Key West Key Lime Shoppe in Flordia? Ice cream, gelato, macarons—Goldbelly has got it all and from various food shops, restaurants, and bakeries across the country. However, if you want the ultimate Fourth of July treat, consider ordering the Limited Edition “Americana” Cake from Carlo’s Bakery (aka Cake Boss) in New Jersey.
This holiday (and summer) support small businesses across the country with the help of Goldbelly and satisfy all of your cravings along the way. Also, be sure to check out 10 Places To Order Birthday Cakes From That Ship Nationwide to see which independent bakeries you can give some extra love to!
