Congratulations South Florida: You have proven your love for Amazon—and are being rewarded accordingly.

On Tuesday, the company announced that Amazon Prime members living in and around Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach can now get Whole Foods groceries delivered right to their door, for free—as long as they’re Prime members.

The move comes just weeks after Amazon announced Florida Prime members could get discounts on select Whole Foods items.

Amazon, which purchased Whole Foods last summer, says the deliveries can take “as little as an hour.” Select alcohol can also be ordered for delivery.

Pompano Beach, Coconut Creek, Coral Gables, Palmetto Bay, and Pembroke Pines are all included in the initial roll out, with new Zip codes being added every day, a company spokesperson said in an email. To see if your zip code is included, visit www.primenow.com.

“We’ve been delighted with the customer response to delivery in as little as an hour through Prime Now, and we’re excited to bring the service to our customers in Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Palm Beach, Long Island and New York City,” Christina Minardi, Whole Foods Market Executive Vice President of Operations, said in a statement.
