Gourment Markets In Singapore

 

If there’s one thing we Singaporeans do with a passion, it’s got to be eating. From hawker centres to fine-dining restaurants, there’s no lack of dining options in our little red dot. But what’s a foodie to do if he’s looking to cook up an exotic feast with artisan produce?

Your answer is in this list of 11 gourmet markets. These places also have a dining area for you to try their food before deciding if you want to take home their produce.

 

1. PasarBella

With over 30 unique stalls housed in 30,000 square feet of space, you’re bound to be spoilt for choice at PasarBella, Singapore’s first permanent farmers’ market. PasarBella puts a roof over a plethora of traders offering mostly European Cuisines like meat, seafood, fresh produce, craft beers and wines.

PasarBella lives up to its name of being a “beautiful market” with hued walls, soft lights and quickly paintings. In fact, this vibrant hideout is so pretty it made it into our list of ulu places worth taking a road trip to.

Address: 200 Turf Club Rd, Singapore 287994

 

2. Marche

Most would be familiar with Marche’s concept: Patrons are given a Marche Card to make purchases at the various stalls available. The card accumulates credit every time a purchase is made. Patrons can then make payment according to the amount recorded on the card at the end of the meal.

Apart from this convenient concept, fans of Marche also rave about being able to pick their own foods and have them prepared on the spot.

3. SPRMRKT

The concept of housing food, retail and art under one roof stemmed from owners’ visions to reshape the local supermarket experience. Apart from enjoying a leisurely brunch at the cafe, ingredients from the day’s menu are available for pick-up over the counter for patrons who wish to cook at home.

Address: 2 McCallum Street, Singapore 069043

 

4. BoCHINche

Latching on to the latin wave in Singapore is BoCHINche, the latest culinary experiment conceptualised by the people at the Spa Esprit Group. Spanish for “ruckus”, BoCHINche opens up our palates to a lesser-known cuisine in Singapore - Argentine fare.

While meats are more synonymous with Argentinian food, BoCHINche gives patrons greater freedom by offering seafood and vegetable items on its menu. On the shelves are of course, Argentine spices, as well imported European goods ranging from gourmet meats to canned yellowfin tuna.

Here’s what we got up to the last time we were there.

Address: 22 Martin Road, Singapore 239058

You might have brushed the store aside because of its ordinary-looking storefront but never judge a book by its cover. Sakuraya Fish Mart is a firm favourite amongst Japanese food lovers due to the freshness of its produce.

Diners can choose the cuts of sashimi they prefer and have them sliced and prepared on the spot. We hear their noodle items are pretty good too.

Truffles are one of my greatest weaknesses - I can never resist a good plate of anything truffle.

Nylon Coffee Roasters is a little bistro tucked away in a housing estate. Though set up more as a takeaway joint, Nylon Coffee Roasters does offer very limited seating for those who need an immediate cuppa fix.

Nylon Coffee Roasters has a well-stocked coffee inventory ranging from coffee beans as well as accessories for making yourself that perfect blend. Customers are encouraged to grind their own coffee beans after purchase. If you think that’s too much work, well, you’ve gotta work for good coffee.
