Both my mum’s and my health recovery involved living on a raw, organic, vegan diet. And since Singapore is so short of land, the frequent question I get is – where do you get do organic food shops good, fresh yet affordable organic produce in Singapore? Hence, I am featuring my top picks of organic food shops based on:
1) Convenience – 1 stop for large selection
3) Quality of Produce
1) Zen Xin Agri-Organic Food
Zenxin Agri-Organic Food (Zenxin) is Malaysia’s leading producer, distributor and retailer of organic produce, since its 2001 setup. As in the farms are relatively near Singapore, we can trust in the produce’s freshness. Zenxin has a wide selection in their shop at Pasir Panjang – the tropical crops are grown in Malaysia and Thailand while seasonal temperate crops are imported from around the world.
The prices are kept affordable by farming in Malaysia (where land is more abundant than Singapore), and then shipping them over the short distance over the causeway. They have a membership program that offers 10% discount. There is also free home delivery (can order online) for purchases above SGD$150. Zen Xin’s produce is also available at Giant, Cold Storage and Market Place, but I personally find the selection the greatest at their own wholesale outlet at Pasir Panjang.
I am making a trip very soon to their farm in Malaysia to understand their organic farming methods, so stay tuned for that!
Address: Blk 14, Pasir Panjang Wholesale Centre #01-25, Singapore 110014
Tel: +65 6778 7369, +65 67797839
Other than being one of my top organic/natural cafes, Sunnychoice is also a convenient spot to pick up organic produce. Sunnychoice carries fresh produce, and other organic essentials like apple cider vinegar, laundry detergent, and snacks.
Address: 434 Upper Bukit Timah Road, The Rail Mall, Singapore 678060
Phone: +65 6892 2383
3) Marketplace by Jasons
Specifically, we like going to Marketplace by Jasons (at Tanglin Mall) for their kale. They seem to have a constant fresh supply, and I can usually get a huge bunch of kale for ~$10 that can last us a few days. It is also a very pleasant, spacious, uncrowded shopping environment.
Address: 163 Tanglin Road, #B1-02/03 Tanglin Mall S(247933)
Phone: 6734 0105
4) NTUC Finest
We usually go to the NTUC Finest at Zhongshan Park as they have 4 fridges full of organic produce. Being Fairprice, they also often have promotions on their produce which makes buying organic more affordable! This outlet is also spacious, uncrowded and free from long queues compared to the Finest at Bukit Timah or Bishan.
Address: Zhong Shan Mall – 20 Ah Hood Road, along Balestier Road. Singapore 329984.
5) Yes Natural
Yes Natural is one of the vegetarian restaurants my mum frequents, and they also have a retail shop and bakery next door, making it convenient to eat first, then shop later. Yes Natural’s retail area is big, covering the area do 2 stores, and they also carry fresh produce, as well as other interesting organic/natural products like black rice, organic chocolate and even water filters!
Address: 51 Lorong 27 Geylang, Singapore 388181.
Tel: +65 6846 1580
6) Nature’s Glory
Nature’s Glory is one of the pioneers in organic produce and health products in Singapore, having been set up in since 1991. On top of fresh produce, Nature’s Glory has very wide selection of organic nuts, toiletries and supplements and more. However, they only open during office hours and are closed on Sundays, which means most of us can only visit on Saturdays.
Address: 315 Outram Rd, Tan Boon Liat Bldg, #11-03, Singapore 169074
7) New Green Pasture Cafe
Located in Fortune Centre, which is probably the Mecca of Vegetarian Food in Singapore, New Green Pasture Cafe differentiates itself by being organic and also by retailing many organic fresh produce and other organic packaged items. I found stevia (healthy natural sugar alternative) at New Green Pasture Cafe after hunting in vain for it at a few other shops.
Address: #04-22, Fortune Centre, 190 Middle Road
Phone: +65 6337 7050
8) Brown Rice Paradise
Brown rice paradise was started in 1994 and is one of Singapore’s most established retailers of natural and organic products. I find some items a bit pricey, but they make up for it by having some items we haven’t been able to find anywhere else, such as organic nama-shoyu (healthy Japaness version of soy sauce).
Address: 163 Tanglin Road, #02-35 Tanglin Mall (located in the new level 2 annex area)
Phone: +65 6738 1121
9) Lapis Lazuli Light
Lapis Lazuli Light sells fresh produce and a good range of supplements and other produce. We buy my mum’s probiotics there as they are the sole supplier of her favorite brand in Singapore. I heard they are starting a cafe soon as their current promises, so I am looking forward to that.
Address: Blk 201, Hougang St 21, #01-15, Singapore 530201
