  • Yes, you may order Beer & Wine online:
    • You must be 21+ years of age to do so. You will be asked to present a valid ID when you pick up your purchase in compliance with Vermont state law.
  • Some Notes, Hints, and Tips about ordering online:
    • We do not currently offer a delivery service. If the Mercato App prompts you for an address at checkout, choose the option, “I’ll pick it up.”
      If you do enter your address, the program will alert you that delivery is not available, and will prompt you to continue…
    • Continue and choose one of the time slots available between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. for the next day (Mon-Fri) to pick up your order.
      If all of the “next day” slots are filled, Mercato will offer you the next available option.

  • Cost, Fees, and Discounts:
    • While there is no service charge for our Curbside Service, Shareholder discounts are not available while shopping online.
    • Please be aware that even though setting up your Mercato Shopping Account is free of charge, there is a 3% processing fee on your orders (3% of the order total + 27¢ for each order).
      • Your payments are securely processed through Mercato. If you see a “pending authorization” on your payment card at the time of purchase, there is nothing to worry about. It is simply in process and will drop off your card within three (3) business days.
    • When ordering random-weight items online, such as from the Bulk or Produce departments, it is not possible for Mercato to define actual prices at the time you complete your online purchase. We do not actually complete and process your payment until your order has been physically shopped, and those random weight items are weighed and calculated.
      • Your online purchase is pre-processed with a total that reflects your purchases, however, when you order these items, which are priced per pound, Mercato will ask you to enter your “best guess” of weight in order to add the item total to your shopping basket. Not to worry. You can leave us a note (go to your shopping “Basket” and choose “Preferences”) and be specific as to what you really want.
        • An example of this might be telling the cart you want (remember, you’re doing a best guess) a pound of broccoli. But what you really want are 2 small crowns of broccoli (which will probably be about a pound or so). After asking for a pound, you would then enter a note (in Preferences) so we can adjust the “pounds” to the “actual weight” ensuring you will receive what you want. When we are done shopping for you in the store, we will adjust those items, get the final total for check-out, and process your payment.
        • Also use that “Preferences” option to give us other details, notes, or references on specific items (such as only organic, or only local… whatever you need to tell us).
  • Substitutions?
    • Are you willing to take a substitution when a product is not available?
      • Be sure to let us know if conventional substitutions are okay in place of organic.
      • Be sure to let us know if there a second-choice flavor, brand, or variety of the product that would be acceptable.
      • Be sure to let us know if a specific brand, price, or size, is important to you when requesting substitutions.
  • Exclusions:
    • We cannot apply/accommodate online (at least not currently):
      • Shareholder discounts
      • Store credits
      • Gift cards
      • Coupons
      • Bottle returns
    • We only accept Credit or Debit Cards for payment (no EBT).
    • We do not deliver. All purchases are for Curbside Pickup only.
