MilkRun (localmilkrun.com)

What can you get?

Local groceries, including seasonal produce, meat, dairy, baked goods and pantry items.

How does it work?

Sign up for a weekly subscription or order à la carte, and get your delivery on a Tuesday or Thursday.

What's the delivery fee?

There isn't one, and there's no minimum order, either. The produce costs about what you'd pay at a farmers market, and the animal products are the fancy free-range stuff—a half-gallon of milk will run you $6.50.

What's the point?

Unlike other pseudo-ecological grocery delivery services, everything MilkRun sells comes from within 35 miles of Portland. It's like a CSA with way more options, or a year-round farmers market you don't have to leave your house for.

GoPuff (gopuff.com)

What can you get?

Anything from Arizona Iced Tea to pizza rolls, NyQuil, phone chargers and, inexplicably, VR headsets and drones.

How does it work?

GoPuff has its own warehouse and 24-hour delivery. You can either order online or through an app.

What's the delivery fee?

$1.95

What's the point?

The company's millennial-focused branding includes a big, winking emoji—one of its many slogans is, "We don't judge, we deliver." Sure, you can order stuff you actually need, but you can also get vapes, vibrators, Four Loko and other stuff you might not want to have to look another human in the eye while buying.

Multnomah County Library (multcolib.org)

What can you get?

Books, DVDs, CDs and anything else in the county's collection.

How does it work?

You can request to have stuff mailed to you through an online account, then return it at any Multnomah County library branch or by mail.

What's the delivery fee?

$3

What's the point?

As antiquated as getting DVDs in the mail might sound, the library has a long list of titles not on streaming services.

After Dark Cookies (afterdarkcookies.com)

What can you get?

Chunky, gooey, freshly baked cookies, ranging from classic chocolate chip to rosemary pecan, and one with seaweed.

How does it work?

Currently, it doesn't—the company's become so popular, it recently went on hiatus until it can find a larger kitchen. In the meantime, it's only filling large orders.

What's the delivery fee?

When After Dark Cookies made home deliveries, the fee was $3.

What's the point?

It's already easy to get awful, factory-made cookies at odd hours of the night, but fresh-out-the-oven goods are typically limited to bakery hours. It's hardly surprising After Dark Cookies found such a fanatic, late-night fan base.
