One-stop solution for online grocery shopping
Where is it – Sanepa
Founders- Nitin Sharma, Anil Basnet, Humbal Shahi and Naresh Khanal
What is it – It is online grocery market promising delivery of healthy vegetables within two hours of the order time.
For inhabitants of Kathmandu, Kalimati Tarkari Bazaar has been a popular hub for fresh and healthy organic shopping since decades. With traffic congestion and hectic time schedules, it is not possible for people to go vegetable shopping all the way to Kalimati or other big vegetable selling hubs. Round-the-corner vegetable stores barely sell fresh produce and the mark up in prices is often huge. This is where metrotarkari.com steps in.
Founded in December 2012, it now takes 30-35 orders on a daily basis. Vegetables delivered by metrotarkari.com are fresh and healthy and bought directly from farmers or Kalimati Tarkari Bazaar.
In case you are not satisfied with the order you receive, there is provision for returning the goods. Morning orders are delivered throughout the day and day orders are delivered either in the evening or the next day. The team of metrotarkari.com themselves do the grading and packaging of items.
To place your order, visit metrotarkari.com, register an account and metrotarkari.com will reach you. The order placed should be of Rs 500 or more. There is no delivery fee.
Initially, only vegetables were available at metrotarkari.com but now almost all grocery and household items can be purchased online.
