We know grocery shopping in Singapore can be expensive. Have a look at these 10 super-value products from OpenTaste Singapore for an easy way to buy cheap groceries online.
OpenTaste Singapore is a handy platform to buy groceries online in Singapore. It’s akin to a “global farmer’s market”, with items sourced from over 300 producers around the world. This direct sourcing allows it to cut out the middlemen who often inflate prices, which means you can enjoy wholesale rates on farm-fresh produce. The direct-to-consumer model also means there’s no reliance on physical stores and all the overhead costs that come with them.
The result? You can expect to find prices at OpenTaste that are around 30 to 50 percent cheaper than for the same items carried at local bricks-and-mortar supermarkets and specialty online grocers.
We asked the team to share 10 of their current super-value items from OpenTaste for when you’re next doing the grocery shopping online in Singapore.

Grocery shopping deal #1: Milk
Whether you splash it on a bowl of cereal, use it to bake fresh goodies, or just top up a cup of tea with it, milk is a grocery staple for most – and at OpenTaste you can get it for a great price. Two 1-litre cartons of organic fresh milk from Paris Creek Farms in South Australia cost $8.99 for the pair, which is almost half the cost of similar milk sold in supermarkets, and only slightly higher than conventional milk stores.
Grocery shopping deal #2: Oranges
Oranges are the perfect snack for sporty kids, or great squeezed into a fresh juice – and at OpenTaste you can pick up a pack of 10 (that’s around 2 to 2.5kg) for just $4.99 when you do your grocery shopping online!
Grocery shopping deal #3: Cherry tomatoes
These delicious organic cherry toms are available at $5.99 for two packs, which is cheaper than you’ll find at conventional stores.
