Have you often found yourself too tired to hit the grocery store, or trudged there and back only to have forgotten something on the list? Kiss your woes goodbye with Singapore’s handy online grocery stores, which will deliver everything you need to your doorstep. Read on for our list of go-to websites….
If you’re looking for a wide variety of meats (think prime cuts, sausages, cold cuts, salamis…. just to name a few) to be sent to your doorstep, look no further than Huber’s Butchery. The meats sold online are imported directly from farms, with all the hams and sausages produced in-house to ensure good quality control. Meat lovers can choose from a decent array of veal, beef, lamb, chicken and pork (marinated or otherwise). We love that the site has a ‘MeaThesaurus‘ section – a dummy’s guide, if you will, to the different parts of meat on an animal, and how they would be best cooked. This guarantees that you buy the correct cuts of meat (and the most apt) for your dish of the day.
That’s not all. This European-styled premium specialty store also sells seafood and gourmet grocery items like bread, vegetables, cheese and fresh herbs on its online site. Definitely a place to check out if you want value-for-money ingredients.
Delivery fee: Free, with minimum order of $75 (you can also choose to pick up your order yourself)
Delivery time: By the next working day, for orders placed before 12 noon
With over 5,000 items to choose from, you’ll be spoilt for choice here. Be it meats, household supplies or baby food, Redmart has it all. Ideal for bulk orders, like cartons of canned drinks for that upcoming bash. Plus, you earn credit points for every purchase made — great for offsetting future buys.

We love that orders get sent in handwoven hamper baskets – they make excellent, easy fix for folks with limited storage space.
