Another farm-to-door delivery service has entered the crowded grocery scene, hoping to appeal to Bay Area foodies with an appetite for fresh and locally grown produce.

Front Door Farms is a Salinas-based startup with a website where consumers can order produce from Northern California farms and have it delivered a day or two after it is harvested. The startup serves much of the Bay Area, including Marin, Contra Costa, Alameda, San Francisco, San Mateo and Santa Clara counties.

Consumers can order produce from a tablet or smartphone, and choose a delivery date. Front Door Farms packs and ships the order to the customer's home within two days. Unlike traditional CSAs -- Community Supported Agriculture -- which usually deliver a box of produce that customers may not get to select, Front Door Farms customers can shop by item, such as a bag of apples, or choose a themed box, such as vegetables for juicing. Boxes can cost upwards of $40.

Front Door Farms will compete with San Francisco-based Good Eggs, which recently acquired Oakland-based LolaBee's Harvest, and also offers online grocery ordering and delivers farm-fresh produce and locally sourced meat, dairy and baked goods throughout the Bay Area.
