Farmers’ markets are a good place to buy local produce and other interesting knick-knacks. Here are 5 that are worth a visit!
When visiting a farmers’ market, expect to be greeted with heaps of local produce, ranging from eggs to fruits and even organic mosquito repellent. Some farmers’ markets come with an additional plus: they give visitors the opportunity to step away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Here at Aerinlé, we have put together a list of five to visit.
This long-running market is a good option if you want to pick up some fruits and vegetables before doing your shopping in town. But before you pack that schedule, remember to leave some time for coffee at The Pantry.
Address: 75E Loewen Road, Singapore 248844
Next market: May 14, 9am to 2pm
If you can hold out for awhile longer, this market at Hotel Jen Orchardgateway promises items like organic vegetables, granola snacks, jams and artisan bread. We’ll definitely be there for the wine jellies!
Address: 277 Orchard Road, #10-01, Singapore 238858
Next market: May 21, 9am to 3pm
3. Weekend Farm
Want to buy your vegetables and learn something about the process of farming at the same time? This is what the Weekend Farm offers visitors, that we think is well worth a drive out of the city! Plus, this market is open almost every day.
Address: 18 Sungei Tengah Road, Singapore 698974
Next market: Open Tuesdays to Sundays, 10am-4pm
4. Kranji Countryside Farmers’ Market
At this quarterly market, visitors can shop for local produce, pottery and even dine with friends at a variety of food stalls. Plus, visitors can take the opportunity to explore the Kranji Countryside.
Address: 240 Neo Tiew Crescent, Singapore 718898
Next market: Check its Facebook page for updates.
5. Farmers & Artisan Market
Aerinlé visited the last Farmers & Artisan market on April 30 at Bollywood Veggies. We were greeted by a bustling atmosphere and loved the fact that part of the organiser’s earnings goes to an animal shelter.
(We also found the coolest walking stick!)
Address: 100 Neo Tiew Road, Singapore 719026
Next market: Follow Bollywood Veggies for updates.
