Looking for farm-fresh organic produce in Jakarta? SayurBox makes organic eating a whole lot easier.
It’s no secret that maintaining a clean and organic lifestyle in Indonesia is not always an easy feat. The bigger supermarkets don’t always stock organic foods you need and visiting organic farms that are outside the city takes hours and hours! Luckily now there’s SayurBox, the answer to eating organically without the hassle.
Perfect for time-strapped city dwellers, SayurBox sources their goods straight off several local farmers’ weekly harvest, and delivers them together so you get farm-fresh produce to cook up your clean eating #goals. The fruits and vegetables delivery service sends weekly home deliveries of organic goodness – just a few clicks, and the next thing you know, voila! Boxes and boxes filled with assorted fruits and veggies like fresh kale, beetroot and bak choy are right at your doorstep. Did we mention that they waive delivery charges on all orders over IDR 100,000? Talk about a time and money saver.
We got to sample sweet corn, mint leaves, and endive from BSP Farm, romaine lettuce and lemon from Manan’s Farm, and curly kale and cucumber from Kebun Mbah Tani – three local farms located in West Java – without ever leaving the comforts of our home (not to mention without having to be stuck in traffic for hours.) How nifty is that? We’d like home deliveries of everything please!
Next time you try out SayurBox’s services for yourself, we recommend taking on this recipe for SayurBox’s Ultimate Infused Water, a refreshing summer drink that will help flush out toxins, cleanse out your system, aid in digestion – and even works as a pick-me-up to nurse a hangover (we can vouch for this).
To make Sayurbox’s Ultimate Infused Water, slice up an entire organic cucumber along with 2 or 3 organic lemons, and throw this all into an ice-cold jug of water. Add in a few sprigs of organic mint leaves, and leave in the fridge overnight to let the flavours fuse. Dee-lish.
