Community-supported agriculture is an idea i quite fancy, but isn’t really possible in land-scarce Singapore. There are a few farms here (i visited Oh Farms 2 weeks ago to check out their hydroponics), but apparently only 7% of the island’s vegetables are grown locally. Due to the climate it’d also be hard to grow a variety of produce i’m guessing. Anyway, some interesting food initiatives i’ve seen lately include this new vertical farm and the “Edible City Garden Project”.

There are many stores who sell organic products online and deliver with some minimum order. I was however, looking for those who: (1) sold boxes of fruits and veggies based on seasonality/stock, (2) had a clear online ordering system, and (3) was able to deliver at least weekly for a reasonable cost. Here’s a list of what i found…

Maybe i will try Murray’s first, the lychee is a bit too tempting to resist!
