Essential Delivery Services in Cape Town: The Lockdown List

You won’t need to leave your house during lockdown with our handy list of local delivery services.

Although supermarkets and pharmacies are operational during the 21-day lockdown, remaining at home is the safest policy – and the best way to flatten the curve and contain the spread of Covid-19 in Cape Town.

Which is why we’ve rounded up all the operational delivery services in Cape Town during this time: from fresh fruit and vegetables to free-range chicken and sustainably caught fish, and even cleaning products and pet food.

Do you know of any other delivery services that are operational during lockdown? We’d love to add them to our list, so please pop them in a comment below.

Editor’s note The companies and services mentioned in this post were operational at the time of publication. This is a live list that will be updated regularly.
