Here’s a list of the best online grocery shopping and delivery in Singapore for daily essential groceries, including fresh seafood and even farmer’s market!
Grocery shopping is one of the essentials of life – some of us see it as a necessary evil, while some of us genuinely enjoy it. Thanks to the digital age (and some say Miss Rona played a huge part too), the demand for online grocery shopping has surged. We’ve compiled a list of the 11 best online grocers for you to grocery shop from the comfort of your bed!
🛒 All-Purpose Supermarkets
What’s so good about it: Redmart is one of the first online supermarkets in Singapore, having started in 2011. Since then, they’ve grown to be one of the go-to online grocery stores because of its extensive catalog, easy-to-navigate user interface and prompt delivery.
What are the perks: Redmart has a membership scheme called “Live Up” where you either pay S$5.99 a month or S$59.90 a year for benefits such as rebates, discounts, and free delivery with partners including GrabFood, Sistic, Chope, and Agoda!
How much is the minimum order for free delivery: You will need to spend S$5.99 for the delivery, which is the same price as the monthly Live Up membership. If you see yourself buying things from Redmart very often, it’s worth getting the membership.
What’s so good about it: It’s Amazon! Not only can you find groceries, you can find anything else that’s to your heart’s desire. Unlike Lazada and Redmart’s partnership, Amazon has everything under one site so you can find whatever you need simply by typing in the search bar. However, it should be noted that Amazon only stocks up non-perishable groceries.
What are the perks: Amazon Prime costs only S$2.99 a month and it gives you free local and international delivery, Amazon Prime Video, Twitch Prime for gaming, as well as exclusive access to deals. This sounds like a pretty good deal to me!
How much is the minimum order for free delivery: If you have Amazon Prime, it’s free! Otherwise, it depends on the seller’s delivery fee.
3. pandanow & pandamart by foodpanda
What’s so good about it: We actually have a dummies guide to pandanow & pandamart, and here’s the gist of it: pandanow is a 24-hour grocery store operated by foodpanda that promises a 20-minute delivery time to your home. For pandamart however, it’s a list of existing grocery stores (much like foodpanda for restaurants) on their catalogue, with a 25-minute delivery time.
What are the perks: If you pay with your YouTrip card, you get $8 off your first order on foodpanda with a minimum spend of $8. Redeem your promo code here!
How much is the minimum order for free delivery: pandanow now has no minimum order and delivery is free, while pandamart’s minimum order depends on the merchant but delivery is free too!
🍷 Specialised & Premium Grocery Stores
4. Ryan’s Grocery
What’s so good about it: If it’s the highest quality Australian groceries you’re after, why not stop by Ryan’s Grocery? Anything rare and Australian – wines, meat, snacks, honey – you can find them here, and their prices are not that far off compared to Fairprice Xtra.
What are the perks: If you absolutely must have the rarest cut of meat or the most exotic of spices, Ryan’s Grocery can accommodate international delivery too!
How much is the minimum order for free delivery: It’s a little bit steep because the minimum is S$150, but if you’re looking at these kinds of places to shop, chances are, it’s well within your budget.
5. The Farmers’ Market
What’s so good about it: After being greeted by the pleasing cinematic, you’ll realize that The Farmers’ Market is actually an upscale wet market selling meats, seafood, and poultry from all over the world. They pride themselves for only selling sustainable and ethical products, which is a theme in most of these specialty stores.
What are the perks: If it’s your first time ordering from The Farmers’ Market, leave your email address on the landing page popup for S$20 off your first order!
How much is the minimum order for free delivery: S$150 for free delivery and the hours are only 1pm to 5pm.
What’s so good about it: Where The Farmers’ Market sells you the meat, BestOrganicFood.sg sells you the veggies. After all, what’s a balanced meal without veggies? You can also shop for dessert by getting yourself some fruits like juicy peaches. Feeling bougie or want to spend extra to feel extra healthy? They’ve got a range of premium birds’ nest as well.
What are the perks: If you refer 5 people to BestOrganicFood.sg, they can quote your name and you’ll receive a S$10 gift package of organic vegetables… that’s 2 days’ worth!
How much is the minimum order for free delivery: S$50 is pretty easy to hit if you’re buying organic vegetables to last for a week!
🦞 Fresh Produce
7. The Seafood Market Place by Song Fish
What’s so good about it: If you harken back to pre-rona (coronavirus) days, you’d probably have walked past one of their stores. The Seafood Market Place by Song Fish is usually a medium-sized store lined with freezers where you can find frozen seafood and other sauces. They’ve always had an online store, it just didn’t take off as much as the stores did, until now. And the best part is, whatever you can find in the store, you can find it online too – even the 3 for S$10 deal!
What are the perks: You might be wondering why a frozen food retailer is under the fresh produce section, and for very good reason. The Seafood Market Place by Song Fish is the premium supplier of seafood that’s actually freshly caught, and immediately frozen to lock in the freshness, until you take it out of your fridge to cook.
How much is the minimum order for free delivery: You can deliver the foods to your house for free if you order over S$100, otherwise you can pick it up for free at your nearest The Seafood Market Place by Song Fish retail store!
8. Tankfully Fresh
What’s so good about it: If you insist that the seafood be fresh, then you have to go to Tankfully Fresh. For example, when I’m making squid ink pasta, I want the squid to be fresh, because if it’s frozen, the ink gland will shrink. When it shrinks after defrosting, I ain’t go no ink to work with! Then it’ll just be squid pasta.
Now, if you somewhat relate to my exaggerated sentiment, then Tankfully this online fishmonger exists because food ain’t gonna be right unless it’s fresh.
What are the perks: The delivery is next day. That means if you order at 6pm today, the people at Tankfully Fresh will take your order and meet up with the fishermen at one of Singapore’s many ports during the night to collect your order fresh from the sea. The next day, it will be delivered to your doorstep!
How much is the minimum order for free delivery: Considering how expensive seafood can get, S$60 is not a hard to fulfill for free delivery.
9. Quanfa Organic
What’s so good about it: Quanfa Organic actually has a plot of land where they grow vegetables in Kranji. Whatever vegetables you see on the website (sans the label that says imported) is what they grow on the farm. There’s even a little disclaimer on the top of the website that urges you not to panic buy because everything is restocked daily! That means, if they’re at the farm, the veggies you bought are most probably freshly picked on the day itself or the day before.
What are the perks: Quanfa Organic sells veggie boxes for people looking for different types of diets – there’s a Keto box for those who wanna get skinny and even a monthly subscription box of veggies (delivered weekly) that feeds a family of four!
How much is the minimum order for free delivery: It’s S$60, but you don’t have to buy S$60 worth of veggies. Quanfa Organic also sells other vegetarian products such as tofu, sauces, juices, the sort, so you can mix and match to hit the minimum order.
10. TADA Fresh Market
What’s so good about it: Woah, Singapore’s renowned Tekka Market is available right to your doorstep! Ride-hailing service TADA partners with Tekka Market to launch TADA Fresh Market – a next-day wet market delivery service. All orders are consolidated the night before and will only be packed on the same morning of delivery to ensure freshness.
What are the perks: The products are delivered by Singapore’s taxi and private-hire drivers, because not only does TADA Fresh Market want to support the local wet market stallholders, they also want to sustain the livelihoods of local drivers. The products on TADA Fresh Market are priced with a small margin, but this goes directly to drivers to remunerate them for their time and labour to make these purchases!
How much is the minimum order for free delivery: Only S$50 to hit free delivery! If you’re getting your week’s worth of fresh wet market produce, it’s pretty easy to hit this minimum order.
🕌 Halal Groceries
What’s so good about it: Mynikmart is actually a play on the Malay word “nikmat”, which means good will or grace. In other contexts, it could also mean enjoy. Mynikmart reflects these two definitions pretty well, its presence is a good will to the Muslim community in Singapore, as well as them being able to enjoy its products. Most of its product range are staples of what you’d find in a Singaporean Muslim pantry.
What are the perks: Mynikmart sells traditional instant mixes of a Malay dessert called dadih, which is a type of pudding. Also, whenever Ramadan and Hari Raya Puasa are around the corner, Mynikmart will sell different types of Arabian dates as well as various steamed fruit cakes!
How much is the minimum order for free delivery: It’s S$49.90 but you have to key in the promo code DEL49 at checkout!
