One word: organic. At this local farm, your leafy greens, gourds and fruits are rendered free from pesticides and chemical fertilisers. They own a wide selection, which are readily available online.
Oh, the goodness of home deliveries. It's the reason why we can cook up a feast without stepping out of the house. Accessible perks aside, the offerings at Straits Market, abides to a higher order — by only sussing out premium quality produce that stands on an ethical and transparent method to farming. By working with other farms in Singapore as well as neighbouring countries, their products include responsibly farmed fish, organic beef and vegetables.
This cosy grocer has a decent selection of cheeses, condiments and spices, but their highlight is undoubtedly at the butcher section. Lamb chops and beef shanks are readily available at a good steal, although we advise going early before the coveted parts get snagged up.
