Premium Japan Farmers Market opens at Changi Airport – Great place to buy souvenirs before you leave Singapore

Singapore’s first Premium Japanese Farmers’ Market has opened at Changi Airport. Located at the Departure Hall of Terminal 3 (Public Area near to Sky Train / MRT), the shop boasts a range of quality vegetables, fruits, meat products and sake all exclusively brought in from Japan. Think quality beef cuts such as Wagyu, Saga Gyu, Tochigi Wagyu, or grapes such as the Shine Muscat or Kyoho grapes.

There is also a ready-to-eat bento section presented by GO-ZEN, which allows customers to customise their own bento boxes from 25 different dishes. You can order 12,000 different combinations before you end up repeating the same thing again!

You might think it strange that a Japanese grocery store might want to locate itself at Changi Airport, which is not very accessible to those not living in the East. But did you know that there is a FairPrice Finest at Changi Airport and that it is usually quite crowded? So there are already Singaporeans going to Changi Airport to do their marketing. Secondly, this would be a convenient base for tourists who are looking for last minute souvenirs to bring back to their home country! Choice Japanese products would make great souvenirs don’t you think? Anyway, I live in the East and I say YAY to more options for us! Smile

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.
