You can now get your all your grocery shopping done with just a few clicks. They usually offer delivery on specific days of the week, so do plan out your grocery list in advance in case you miss the delivery day!

1. Green Circle Eco-farm

We love how easy it is to shop on the Green Circle’s online store. They operate as a farm and has a B2C business model. They provide useful information on how the crops are grown and give tips on how to cook certain vegetables. We also like how there are pictures to illustrate how each product looks like. With more than 60 varieties of vegetables, herbs, fruits and condiments neatly categorised, it is pretty easy to shop for the produce that you want. It’ll be best if you shop by category because produce classified under ‘Others’ are all imported. According to their website, “Your vegetables will not get any fresher unless you come and eat them off the ground!”

Delivery minimum: The minimum amount for purchase is $30.
Delivery fee: $5 for each order

4. Kin Yan Agrotech

Buy organically cultivated health crops such as wheat grass, buckwheat sprouts, edible cactus, aloe vera, mushrooms and tropical herbs from Kin Yan Agrotech’s web store. The selection is pretty limited online and it is easier to buy their pea shoots from local supermarkets (NTUC and Sheng Shiong) but if you are looking for wheatgrass products, Kin Yan Agrotech should be a good site to make your purchase.
