Besides dining out, most of us also cook at home to sharpen our cooking skills and save some money while we’re at it. As Singaporeans, we love a great lobang as much as the next person, especially when grocery shopping. But that all depends on which supermarket you go to.
To help with your shopping conundrum, we’ve rounded up an exhaustive list of supermarkets and grocery stores in Singapore and the best things you can buy at each.
Table of Contents
Let’s start off with Singapore’s major supermarkets, where you can find almost any basic product you’ll need in your pantry. They also have outlets all around Singapore, so you don’t have to travel far, no matter which neighbourhood you’re from.
NTUC FairPrice has been serving our grocery needs since 1973. Today, it’s the biggest supermarket chain in Singapore and you’ll easily find at least one outlet in every neighbourhood. This is your go-to for basics you’d need in any household – fruits, veggies, poultry, seafood, meat, kitchenware, party goods, and toiletries. Not to mention, some outlets are open 24/7 for even more convenience.
Besides the usual NTUC FairPrice outlets, they also have retail formats like FairPrice Finest and Warehouse Club, their membership-only retail warehouse. For online grocery deliveries, there’s also the FairPrice Online website.

TIL that Sheng Shiong has had its own reality TV show on Channel 8 since 2007 – that’s how you know this supermarket is a household name. Most branches are located near HDB blocks, which helps keep its costs low, resulting in lower prices for shoppers.
On top of already lowered prices, seniors aged 60 and above get a 4% discount if they shop on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. All they’ve got to do is flash their NRIC for proof to get the discount – however, this applies to a maximum of $200 spent on a single receipt.
There’s also the Sheng Shiong Online website, where you’ll get free delivery for orders above $100.

CS Fresh is a step up from your typical Cold Storage. Aside from the basic groceries, shoppers can find more boujee brands imported from overseas. Besides fresh produce and household essentials, those who are too tired to cook can just grab one of their ready-to-eat meals. They’ve got a variety of options to choose from like sushi, roast pork, and even salad bowls.
If you’re shopping online, you’ll get free delivery with a $59 minimum spend. You can also use the Cart app to order. Plus, first-timers get discount coupons as a cherry on top.

The regular Giant outlets are already massive, but Giant Hypermarkets are even bigger. Apart from groceries, the hypermarkets also sell furniture, electronics, and clothes – it really is a one-stop shop for anything you need at home.
This budget-friendly sister brand of Cold Storage even has a “Lower Prices That Last” initiative that ensures they have everyday essentials at low prices. That way, shoppers don’t have to feel pressured to stock up when there’s a good deal and can buy only what they need.
If that’s not enough of a bargain, Singaporean and PR seniors aged 60 and above get a 3% discount during the weekdays – no minimum spend required.

One step up from your nostalgic mama shops, these heartland marts and supermarkets are affordable and accessible.
Prime started as a mini-mart and is now a supermarket chain with over 24 outlets in newer residential areas – think Bidadari, King George, and Compassvale. While the range of products they offer may not be as wide as the bigger supermarkets, their fresh produce is competitively priced.
The lower prices are attributed to lower rental costs in the heartlands and the fact that their fresh produce is sourced locally. But that doesn’t mean you can’t find your favourite imported goods here, they still have fruits, veggies, and various products flown in from other regions.
View the full list of Prime Supermarket outlets.
Contrary to what its name may suggest, you’ll find a variety of local and Malaysian brands at Ang Mo Supermarket. These are brands you might not come across at the big supermarket chains, plus they’re competitively priced against other imported brands.
This supermarket is sticking to its heartland roots: while other bigger chains have invested more into e-commerce, Ang Mo Supermarket has chosen to remain analogue. They don’t even have a website, which does make it harder to find out more about the products they have. But this does mean that they’re able to sell items at lower prices since they spend less on advertising.
If you’re heading down, take note that they only accept cash, PayNow, and NETS here.

You’ll get the best of both worlds with HAO Mart – mini-marts with groceries and fresh produce to full-on supermarkets. HAO Mart outlets are located in heartland areas and look a lot like the typical mama shops. But don’t let their appearance fool you, they’re fully stocked with anything you’ll find at your usual supermarkets – fresh fruit and vegetables, condiments, baking needs, and snacks.

Besides HAO Mart, the brand has also expanded with Eccelente, which has more atas outlets located in malls like Westgate and Marina Square. Muslim shoppers can also check out the HAO Halal Hub outlets offering all-halal products – something the other big chains don’t have.

It can be hard to find the time and energy to shop for groceries, especially if you’re working from the office. U Stars Supermarket’s outlets are open 24/7, giving shoppers the flexibility to shop at any time. Grocery runs at night are a vibe, anyway – there are fewer people and you’ll have more time to check out the deals they’ve got.
Speaking of deals, the supermarket often posts flash deals on its Instagram account. Check them out before heading down if you’re you’re looking to get a specific item. The promotions typically run for 2-3 days – so you have time to snatch them, even if it’s in the wee hours of the morning.
