As the store features more than 3,000 items, it is hard to speak in general terms, so we’ll take a look at the price ranges for all the most popular product categories in order to provide you with the whole picture. Let’s get started.
FreshDirect meal items are divided into 14 basic categories: appetizers, breakfast, deli salads, entrées, green salads, marinated & kabobs, meal kits, pizza, salsas and dips, sandwiches and wraps, sauces and marinades, sides, soup and chili, and sushi.

The prices of groceries vary immensely, depending on the type and the quantity. We’ll just look at several most popular categories, so you can get a sense of what you can expect. For example, both fruit and vegetables can be bought for less than a dollar but can also cost as much as $69.99, which is the price of a case of fresh pineapple and blueberry medley. The most expensive cuts of meat can cost nearly $30 per lb while the most affordable meat and poultry, such as chicken drumsticks, can cost only $1.99 per lb. Prepped-to-cook seafood costs between $6.99 (e.g. 1 lb of fish cubes) and $50.00 (e.g. farm-raised lemon and dill salmon for 4 to 6 people).
FreshDirect offers beer, wine, and spirits, as well as a variety of non-alcoholic beverages. Beers normally cost between $1.41 and $26.62 per pt. As you can imagine, the price range for wines and spirits is enormous, ranging from around $10 to more than $100. The prices of non-alcoholic beverages are rather affordable. For example, the prices of juices usually range from $0.59 per pt. for virgin lemonade to just over $5 per pt. for organic, high-quality juices.
As you can see, the price ranges really are immense, but now you at least know what to expect when you stop by the FreshDirect store.
