We’re totally digging these farmers’ markets. Grab your biggest tote and start picking...
All aboard the local food movement, say aye! Our little island has been growing – a tiny percent of Singapore’s green patches are home to urban farms (psst: you can even start one in your balcony!). Take a step towards living a more conscious life by shopping for fresh, locally-grown produce at these farmers’ markets. Get your crew, bring your own bag and make a day out of it…
