Best for Big Parties

Originally a service just for swanky restaurants and catering businesses, Marx Foods has expanded to outfit home cooks as well. This online company sells top-quality and exotic meats, seafood, cheeses, produce, and pantry items in bulk, so it's a great site to shop if you're feeding a big group at a barbecue or dinner party. You'll find everything from grass-fed beef to alligator to oysters to morel mushrooms. Marx ships food via FedEx or UPS ground anywhere in the U.S. between two and seven business days, depending on your needs. [marxfoods.com]
