How will my order ship?

Peters Gourmet Market parcels are shipped United Parcel Service (UPS) and USPS Priorty Mail.  Locations in AK, HI, PR and Post Office boxes will be shipped Priority Mail, please choose that option when checking out. USPS book rates apply. Additional charges levied will be passed on to customer. We do reserve the right to change the shipping method for reasons of speed of delivery or cost.


The carriers are experiencing some slower transit times to some areas.  This is due to a shortage of drivers creating congestion at some terminals.  They are working on resolving these delays.


When will my order ship?

Typically, your order will be shipped within 1-2 business days.   Factors that may affect this timing are:

1. Product protection - We may hold your order until the following Monday to prevent perishable product from remaining in route over a weekend.

2. Christmas Season (Mid October - December) - Though we make as many preparations as possible during the season, your order may take a day or two longer to arrive during this time of year.

3. Product Availability - If more than 20% of your order is out of stock, we may choose to hold the order until the required products arrive. If your order will be held for more than 7 days, we will contact you for possible substitutions.
