Best grocery delivery service?

Looking for experiences people have had with various grocery delivery services. My elderly parents are in Scarborough and don't drive so I'd like to get them a subscription. Ideally I'd want a service that doesn't mark up their prices too much and add on extra fees, but I understand this might be difficult to circumvent. Thanks for your time.

Try Instacart. I've used it a few times and there is no mark-up at Walmart (same prices as in store). It costs $3.99 per delivery or you can buy a $10/month (I think) subscription for free unlimited deliveries. It's free to try and you can get $10 off your first order with a referral.

100% not applicable since it's not available in Canada, but I LOVED Amazon Fresh.
I'm not sure it'd compete well today, but at no other point in my life was I able to both get ice cream and a hard drive in the same shipment.
Anything that was available in Amazon's Seattle warehouse was available for grocery delivery. Same day too.
This was years ago when Prime was still 2 day.

I haven't tried but maybe look into Grocery Gateway. They're probably not the cheapest since the food looks like it's from Longo's but it's worth a look.
