"We've been delighted with the customer response to free two-hour delivery through Prime Now, and we're excited to bring the service to our customers in Baltimore, Boston, Philadelphia and Richmond", said Christina Minardi, Whole Foods Market Executive Vice President of Operations.

Since taking over Whole Foods, Amazon has also cut some prices at the notoriously expensive supermarket. Members can shop through Prime Now for fresh produce, meat and seafood, household items and more from Whole Foods Market. Plus, Whole Foods has launched even more discounts on some of the store's best-selling products.

With the expansion, Whole Foods stores in 23 states will have integrated Prime benefits at checkout. Customers also can see Prime offers via the Whole Foods app.
