Dallas hasn’t always been known as a mecca for health food, but in the past few years, that’s all changed. When Flower Child opened in 2017, followed by all-day cafe Tribal in 2018, it was clear Dallas was ready for some healthier options. Throw in the convenience of delivery and you’ve got the recipe for Foxtrot Delivery Market, your new favorite corner market, healthy snack go-to, neighborhood coffee and wine bar, and delivery service all rolled into one.
Open as of June 25, 2019, the entrance of Chicago-based Foxtrot Delivery Market into Dallas is kind of a big deal. Not only is the new spot the company’s first Texas location, it also happens to be their first store outside of Chi-Town.
A charming 3,600-square-foot space at the corner of Allen Street and McKinney Avenue in Uptown, Foxtrot Delivery Market has your grocery list sorted and your cold-pressed juice, kombucha, coffee, healthy eats, and household essentials covered. Stop in to stock up on paper towels and eggs, pick up a chef-prepared meal (there are plenty of vegetarian- and vegan- friendly options to choose from), or treat yourself to a pint of plant-based ice cream (they have Jeni’s).
But, while the store intends to have a rotating selection of curated goods to explore, they also plan to carry a handful of locally-sourced items, including beans from Oak Cliff Coffee Roasters, arrangements from Flower Gals Co., and cheese from Mozzarella Company.
Foxtrot is much more than a grab-and-go shop, though. With both indoor and outdoor seating, you can meet up with friends for a freshly-brewed pick-me-up or a glass of wine from the bar and catch up over a charcuterie board. And if you’re looking for something a bit more filling, they also offer seasonal cafe menu with dishes like the Harvest Grain Bowl (brown rice and roasted chicken topped with kale and sweet potato and sprinkled with goat cheese and poached apple) and the Cauliflower Curry and Jackfruit Sandwich.
Even better, if you don’t have time to fit a visit to Foxtrot in your schedule, you can place an order online, and they’ll bring them to you in under an hour just $5 (no additional tips, service charges or other hidden fees).
There’s a reason Foxtrot Delivery Market has experienced such success in Chicago, and it’s not just because of what they’ve stocked the aisles with (although that helps). In addition to their commitment to quality, this modern convenience store is dedicated to the community, and that’s not changing just because they’re in a new state.
Case in point: To kick things off during their opening week, they played host to a community outdoor market and a jogging club in collaboration with Outdoor Voices. But don’t expect these events to end now that they’re open for business.
While we don’t know exactly what Foxtrot has in store, they have shared they plan to continue to team up with Outdoor Voices and other local companies to host more events throughout summer (and beyond). And if the events schedules at their Chicago locations are any indication, there will be plenty of fitness-focused partnerships in the future.
So, swing by Foxtrot Delivery Market to see what they're all about and to welcome them to the Big D. Oh, and keep an eye out — rumor has it there are plans to open up a total of three stores in the Dallas area.
