5 Reasons to Shop For Your Seafood Online

Gone are the days where you can only get fresh seafood such as fish and crustaceans from your local market or grocer. Nowadays, online shopping has become the go-to for many people in Singapore when it comes to clothes, electronics, and groceries. After all, shopping from the comfort of home is way easier than getting dressed and going out!  So why not dive right into shopping online for fresh seafood too? Here are five reasons you should get hooked on buying your seafood online!

1. Convenience

With online shopping, the convenience is unbeatable. There’s no need to travel or deal with the hassle of crowded supermarkets. This is especially advantageous during the pandemic, as you can keep yourself and your family safe by staying at home. Not only do you save time, but you can also take your time to make your choice as there is no pressure to decide on the spot. Order anytime, anywhere — 24 hours a day, 7 days a week — and enjoy islandwide delivery! All you need to do is tap a few buttons on your phone or computer and voilà — fresh seafood at your doorstep.

2. Wide Variety of Unique Option

There is often a much wider selection of seafood when buying online compared to what you might find readily available in physical stores in Singapore. Take your pick from unique options such as monkfish, ready-to-eat oyster platters, or fresh seasonal catches. On top of better variety, online seafood stores usually provide more product information, which helps you make more informed decisions as you know what you’re getting and how you can cook them!

3. Guaranteed Freshness

The seafood you’d find in groceries may be ‘fresh’, but they are often put through extensive supply chains or displayed on ice for long periods of time. On the other hand, ordering online gets you fresh, wholesale seafood straight from the supplier to your door. By cutting down the supply chain, you can enjoy the freshest seafood, usually at even more affordable prices! Plus, shopping in-store for fresh fish means you’ve got to head home immediately to refrigerate them and maintain their freshness — a must in Singapore’s sweltering heat. Shopping online for seafood? No rush, no fuss, your seafood orders are well-packed and transported to you perfectly chilled and fresh!

4. Selected by Experts

Choosing your seafood in a grocery store or market can be challenging. If you’re not familiar with the various types of seafood, it can be hard to tell whether they are fresh or what would best suit your palate. By ordering online at a high-quality fish market, you can rest assured that experts at their trade are choosing the best catches for you. Here at Greenwood Fish Market, we are also direct importers for our seafood, so you know you’re netting only the cream of the crop!

5. Easily Stock Up on Seafood

Lugging home heavy grocery bags? No thanks. Getting bulk seafood orders delivered to your home? Yes, please! Whether it’s to always have some on hand for your seafood cravings or to cook for a dinner party, ordering online is a great way to buy in bulk and stock up on seafood. We’d recommend opting for individual vacuum-sealed portions of boneless fish fillets with skin that you can easily store in your freezer. When you’re hungry for seafood (a.k.a. all the time), simply thaw it out in the refrigerator overnight, and you’ve got yourself a read-to-cook meal. Explore our range of Supply Packs which feature value-for-money bundles of premium seafood and meat — perfect for dinner parties!
