The last thing you want to focus on while vacationing in Maui is grocery shopping and wasting time away from the beach. Maui offers a few grocery delivery services as a convenient option for those who want to surprise their partner with a fully stocked condo and avoid the hassle of shopping in-person, or for those who are unable to leave their home.
There are several international and local grocery delivery services available on Maui, each with their own unique features and benefits.
International options for grocery delivery on Maui
One popular grocery delivery option is Instacart, which allows you to shop from a variety of local stores and have your groceries delivered to your door within a few hours. Instacart partners with several stores on Maui, including Safeway, Costco, and Target, so you can shop from a wide range of products. Many chain grocery stores also offer pickup and go services; order ahead and pick up your grocery order during a reserved time slot. Pretty slick.
Local grocery delivery services on Maui
If you prefer to support local businesses, you might want to try Maui Grocery Delivery. This service partners with both big-chain and several small, locally-owned stores on the island, including Tante’s Market, Island Grocery Depot, and Yoki’s Health Foods.

They will shop, deliver, and set up your items in your condo if you wish.
Maui Grocery Service currently shops at a number of grocery stores in the area: Costco, Safeway, Foodland, Wholefoods and other Specialty stores, based on your order. They deliver to all of Maui, for a fee ($59, or $250 for remote locations like Hana, Lanai and Molokai).
Makai Services is a Maui grocery concierge and errand service that will stock your condo before you arrive. They shop at the local farmers markets for the freshest fruits and vegetables, and can also deliver kosher food. They request at least 72 hours’ notice to process an order and are located in South Maui.
Maui Market Delivery has two branches that serve South and West regions of Maui, including Kapalua, Napili, Kahana, Ka’anapali, Lahaina, Launiopoko, Oluwalu, Ma’alaea, Kihei, Wailea, and Makena. Their delivery fee is 30% of the store’s receipt subtotal, which includes shopping at the various stores needed to fulfill your order, round-trip delivery from Kahului to the location you are staying on Maui, and properly setting up all of your items in the kitchen of your hotel room, condo, or home. For orders under $150 there is a flat-rate $45 fee (no % charge). Since they shop 1 day in advance for most orders (2 days for Costco orders), their cancellation policy states: “Once a grocery list is submitted AND payment is collected cancellations made within 48 hours of the arrival date listed on the order form are subject to a $45 fee to account for restocking/returns and the cost of any grocery items that are unable to be returned back to the stores.”
