Amazon Prime shoppers in certain cities can now get free two-hour delivery on groceries from Whole Foods Market.

The service is available in areas of Dallas, Cincinnati, Austin, Texas, and Virginia Beach, Va., according to a news release. Delivery is available 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Amazon plans to expand this option across the country throughout 2018.

Whole Foods items available to order from the Prime Now website include fresh produce, meat and seafood, dairy and other fresh food products.

“We’re happy to bring our customers the convenience of free two-hour delivery through Prime Now and access to thousands of natural and organic groceries and locally sourced favorites,” John Mackey, co-founder and CEO of Whole Foods, said in the release. “Together we have already lowered prices on many items, and this offering makes Prime customers’ lives even easier.”

Shoppers can receive delivery in one hour or less for $7.99 on orders of at least $35.
