In the midst of the COVID-19 situation, we want to ensure we do our best to flatten the curve as much as possible. One way to do that is to minimise going out and practise social distancing.
However, we still need our daily groceries to keep ourselves satiated and healthy. The beauty of the Internet is that you can get literally everything all within a couple of clicks. To make things even easier for you, we have compiled a guide to online grocery shopping so you can still get what you need but stay in the safety of your homes. Plus, you get the ingredients you need to try some of our stay-home recipes.
Also, this is also a great way to help elderly relatives get what they need without risking their health. The Internet does come through for us sometimes.
We’ve categorised our guide based on the types of goods sold by each brand. For each section, we’ll feature a few of the more prominent ones, and list the rest in point form for easy reading and reference. We’ll even throw in a table at the end of the article, just in case those visuals appeal to you more. Without further ado, here is a list of online groceries to optimise your stay-at-home time.
1. The Seafood Market Place by Song Fish

When Fairprice doesn’t have all your favourite brands, RedMart is the next place to look for. With an extensive selection of goods, there is no need to leave the house unnecessarily.
If both of these sites aren’t cutting it for you, browse any of the other eight brands below. Some stock more eclectic goods than others, so take your pick.
1. CS Food
CS Food houses several delectable halal brands under their belt from Merri Valley to Union Station. For those unfamiliar with Union Station, it offers hefty, grass-fed beef from Australia. If staying at home is getting you a little down in the dumps, a good quality steak will make you feel like you are in a fancy restaurant again.
Plus, there is 10% off site-wide, which is all the more reason to shop online.
