Best online Supermarkets - Moscow


In times of Corona and the current curfew most of us are at home. You are allowed to go to the nearest supermarket, but maybe it doesn't have all your favorite products, or you just need larger quantities and don't want to carry everything home. That's why we share our favorite supermarket chains, where we have had good experience ordering from ourselves. These supermarkets below still deliver in Corona times, but keep in mind that the delivery times are longer than normal. We all have to plan a bit more in advance!

For food & household items:


Here you can get all the food you can imagine, as well as all household items, pet food, cosmetics, etc. The prices are normal to rather cheap, the delivery is very reliable. With the high extent of utilization at present you must count mostly 1 – 1,5 weeks until you get a delivery date. So just plan a little bit ahead and order today what you need in one week. With Utkonos an account must be put on, over which you orders then. This process is very easy and as soon as you have an account, previous deliveries can be repeated easily, and you don't have to search for the products for a long time. The website is very simple and clearly divided into categories. You can pay either online, or directly at the front door in cash or by card.


Perekrestok is comparable to Utkonos. The range of products is just as wide and you get everything you need. Also the price level is about the same. The website is clearly divided into categories and it is very easy to order larger quantities. In the current time it takes about 1 - 2 weeks until you get a delivery. So also here you should plan ahead. Here you don't have to create an account, but you can do so to make future purchases easier. Payment can be made either online or directly at the front door in cash or by card.

Sbermarket (old name Instamart)

We have used this service several times to order food, cleaning products and other necessities from Metro. Sbermarket makes it possible to order your products from one of the following shops: Azbuka Vkusa, Vkus Vill, Ashan or Lenta. During the current situation it takes one week for a delivery.

Azbuka Vkusa

From our perpective, Azbuka Vkusa is a supermarket in the upper price range. You have a great selection and variety of products, but compared to the other two suppliers, it is a little more expensive here. The advantage at the moment is that the delivery times are not quite as long and you usually get the food delivered to your home within 3-4 days. Here you give your address and contacts when ordering and pay either online or at the door in cash or by card.
