A farmers’ market is a one-up from any supermarket experience; While with the same bustling activity and fresh food our traditional wet markets have, farmers’ markets focus more on organic produce, some homegrown. That’s not all - they also feature handcrafted items, workshops, and pop-up food stalls, making the whole atmosphere almost carnival-like.

Whether you’re a health nut seeking out organic goodies, or simply want a different sort of grocery shopping experience, these farmers’ markets in Singapore are worth hitting up. 

 

1. Farmers’ Market @ Loewen Gardens
