Whether you’re a new expat here or you’re moving here soon, you’ve probably heard “Cold Storage” or “FairPrice” being mentioned in terms of supermarkets in Singapore. In fact, there are plenty of grocery stores and supermarkets here for picking up quality produce. There’s also a wide range of online groceries for delivery, if that’s easier. Some focus on great value food stuff, others specialise in premium meat, international fresh fruit or organic choices.
