San Francisco-based Instacart isn’t ready to cede an inch to rival Amazon in the battle to bring groceries to your home.

According to a new report from Bloomberg, Instacart has raised a fresh, whole-range, grass-fed round of $200 million in venture capital. The funding comes just a few days after reports that Amazon is testing delivery from the Whole Foods stores it swallowed last year.
