Watertown Markets Offering Alternatives to In-Store Shopping During Coronavirus Outbreak


People who cannot go to a store, or do not want to in a social distancing effort during the Coronavirus outbreak, have some alternatives at two Watertown markets.

At Russo’s, 560 Pleasant St., customers can order delivery through the Mercato website (click here), or they can order a Russo’s Box and pick it up in the market’s parking lot.

There are two Box options, one for $50 and the larger size for $100. Each includes a variety of fruits and vegetables, bread, milk, eggs and more. See details by clicking here.

At Arax Market, 585 Mt. Auburn St., residents can make orders to be delivered or picked up at the store. The East Watertown store put up the following information on its Facebook page:

During this difficult time, we would like to help those in need that can’t leave their homes. We are offering delivery for Watertown residents ONLY ($25 minimum).

We will also do your shopping for you and you can come and pick it up. You can call (617-924-3399) or message us on Facebook or Instagram.

We have been working round the clock to ensure all of our customers have fresh fruits, vegetables, grains, bread, dairy, and homemade prepared meals!

  1. I was out shopping today.

    I was driving on Galen Street.

    For how many more years — YEARS – is Watertown going to refuse to fix the sunken manholes and potholes on Galen Street?

    Watertown is taking in millions of dollars of tax revenue from the new Arsenal Street developments and it can’t fix potholes? The Town Council is a DISGRACE.

    Don’t get me started on the potholes on Mount Auburn Street.

    What’s the matter with you people?

  2. Fabulous markets with fresh foods. So happy that they’ve come together to provide this service. How lucky we are to have these family businesses willing to make these accommodations for our convenience’s.
    Feeling hopeful!

  3. Someone needs to be held accountable for this. Its time for new personnel in Watertown who can come up with a plan to fix this. First and foremost we need a mayor and a new DPW superintendent.
