Quan Fa Organic Farm
Local produce grown according to organic farming methods with no pesticides? Hallelujah! We’ve been searching high and low for locally grown organic fruit, veg and herbs, and the produce from Quan Fa Farm in Lim Chu Kang always arrives looking freshly picked – it is, after all, harvested on the morning of your delivery. Quan Fa does offer imported organic products too, including seasonal fresh produce alongside kitchen essentials such as sugar, flour, eggs and even salad dressing. Deliveries are on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays in the afternoon (you can ask them to text an estimated arrival), and it’s free for purchases over $60. Only credit card payment is accepted for online orders.
Remember deliveries from the milkman? (We’re showing our age here.) Dairy Folks is reviving the old-school milk delivery, and their fresh milk is the real deal: full-cream, preservative-free and with a natural layer of cream on top! This local Singapore dairy has been around since 1936 and we can’t believe we haven’t discovered them sooner. Brace yourselves: Dairy Folks also delivers ICE CREAM. Trust us, it’s amazing and made from 100% fresh milk. Order five days in advance – delivery is free for orders over $20, and you’ll be contacted to set up a convenient delivery time.
This online grocery store has a pretty straight forward process. It sources fresh produce direct from over 200 farms in Asia, US, Europe and Australia and delivers it straight to your home in under 36 hours. Hop on the website and you’ll be able to see at a glance where all the food is sourced from and whether they offer next day delivery. Delivery is free for orders over $49, but if you’re stocking up for a party, then bulk buys are definitely the way to go for major discounts.
The Organic Grocer
The Organic Grocer has a bricks and mortar store on Mohamed Sultan Drive offering excellent certified organic produce, fresh and frozen meat and hard-to-find organic groceries, but we highly rate its online ordering system too. If all the plastic trays, bags and shrink-wrap used to package supermarket produce makes you shudder, you’ll love these guys: The Organic Grocer is committed to using less plastic. Deliveries are on Wednesdays to Saturdays from 3 to 7.30pm and do require a bit of planning: check the order deadlines so you don’t get caught out. Stick with this store and you can earn Organic Points to redeem on your shopping!
Available online only, Straits Market offers a home delivery service that focuses on ethically produced food and transparency. Its food is sourced directly from farms in Singapore and neighbouring countries so you know where your farmed fish, organic beef, organic veg and hormone and antibiotic-free Sakura chicken come from. It also has a gluten free range, offers organic wine and freshly baked bread every day. Delivery is twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays with a cut-off order time of 2pm for one-day delivery. Delivery is free for orders over $150.
Redmart is currently the main mum-fave in HoneyKids HQ for its fresh produce department, quality fruit and veg and delivery. Key highlights are that it offers competitive prices, stocks goods from Sainsbury (helloooo, biccies!) and offers free delivery above $40 for members, and above $100 for non-members. First-time customers also get free delivery for your first 3 orders (min. spending of $40 per order). Heads up though, people, Redmart has moved to Lazada so you’ll need to order from the Lazada app!
