1. How to place an online order

Browse through our “Shop Here” page and choose what you like. Make sure you take a good look at every section, and if you’re not sure whether something is available or not, give us a call. When placing an order you will be asked whether you want it to be... 

  • a one-off order - with a minimum spend of $25, or
  • an ongoing order - which you will receive regularly, weekly or fortnightly

Remember! Orders must be placed by 10PM on Sundays for same week delivery.

Check the map to see where the pick up spot in your area is. Your order will be delivered to the City Cousin you choose and you can pick it up from there on delivery day, either Tuesday or Wednesday. 

Remember! Each City Cousin have their own delivery days and hours, which you will receive via email once your order is confirmed. Give your City Cousin a call to arrange your first groceries pick-up.
