Amazon is entering the grocery delivery space in Baltimore.

Through its Prime Now service, the ecommerce giant is offering delivery of groceries within two hours from Whole Foods, which it purchased last year.

According to a news release, two-hour delivery on an order of $35 or more comes with no additional charge, while one-hour delivery on an order of $35 or more carries a fee of $7.99.

The delivery service is now available in 14 markets. On Tuesday, Amazon also expanded the service to Boston, Philadelphia and Richmond.

While Baltimore’s health department introduced online ordering and delivery to areas that lack fresh food options through its Virtual Supermarket program in 2014, the area’s grocery delivery offerings are getting some big players this year. Target introduced same-day delivery in March.
