Zenxin Organic Store and where to spend your Halloween

We were in the Pasir Panjang area today so we decided to stop by Zenxin Organic Store. They were having a sale so I went wild at the organic flour section. I’d previously tried to make my own pasta twice, and failed spectacularly twice. I blame the disasters on the flour used. Today, Zenxin was selling Organic Durum Wheat Flour at only $4/kg and Organic Wheat Flour at $3.90/kg. Bought 3 packs in total, and I would have bought more if they’d had Organic oat flour on stock too.

There was a huge pumpkin on display, in anticipation of their Halloween Party on October 30th. It’s going to be great fun because there will be cooking demonstrations, free tastings, pumpkin carving and Guess the weight of the giant pumpkin contest! I was there last year and it was great! And most likely, things are going to be on discount too. YAY! Get your chilly bins ready so you can stock up on all those organic fruits, vegetables and milk! Zenxin’s my favourite organic store because it’s the cheapest!

Speaking of Halloween celebrations, the Asian Civilizations Museum at Empress Place will be organizing a Fright Night on the 30th of October too. Free beer, ice cream, scary movie, spooky makeover plus supernatural guided tour of the museum. Museum will be open till 1 am!!

image And if that’s not enough, there’s also the Halloween of Horrors at the Night Safari. It’s going on the entire month of October, and this is if I’m not wrong their 3rd or 4th year already. The whole Night Safari is decked out in Halloween themed decorations, and they have people dressing up as spooks to come disturb you. I really like the Train of Horrors last year and I’m going again this year.

The real farmer’s market

When we hear the words “farmers’ market”, we normally think of the Western kind, but the truth is that we here in Singapore have been shopping the “farmers’ market” way all this while. Our wet markets are the first real farmers’ market. Which makes us luckier than our European counterparts since we have them every single day, and not just on Saturday! In fact, it is the places that only have supermarkets and no more local butcher, grocer or wet market that require a “farmers’ market”, because after going one full circle, people eventually yearn for what they grew up with.

Scroll down for pictures of the Pasir Panjang Wholesale market. I have to admit, it was just as fun going to the Pasir Panjang Wholesale market, as it was going to the Loewen Gardens Farmers Market. In fact, prices at the Pasir Panjang Wholesale market are so cheap, I didn’t have to think twice about buying anything I wanted! There are no certified organic stuff here, although there is a Zenxin organic store located near the entrance of Pasir Panjang Wholesale market just opposite the food centre.
