Did you know that Market Place at Raffles City has gone through a revamp? It is now more spacious and luminous! Besides that, they have also included new sections like ‘Food of the World’ and ‘Food to Go’. Each section is now clearly labelled with huge signages so you can find your items easily!
The moment you walk into the supermarket you cannot help but notice the range of fruits they have there. Other than the usual tropical fruits, they also bring in seasonal ones like these melons from Hokkaido.
If you are working in the area and want to grab some fruits, Market Place now has sliced fresh fruits of different varieties. It has made shopping so much more convenient!
The supermarket has also created product highlight displays featuring some of their gourmet products as well as expanded their shopping aisles for easier shopping. Squeezing between shopping carts and tight spaces is a now thing of the past!
Grab a box of baby spinach, romaine lettuce or mesclun salad with three toppings for only $4.99! They offer a comprehensive list of toppings like beetroot, sundried tomatoes and smoked salmon.
It is quite amazing that in spite of all the many seafood they carry, you cannot smell anything fishy! This is because the seafood is extremely fresh and they replace the ice constantly.
This supermarket is also famous for its fresh oyster shucking station!
The oysters are as fresh as it gets! If you are holding a party and wish to have an oyster platter, you can get them here! Just call ahead and collect later.
The most interesting thing I tasted yesterday was the Finger Lime, which will only be available in stores in a few weeks. Doesn’t it remind you of caviar?
This is the Japanese food section! The tuna sashimi we were offered was part of the 50kg fish they cleaned and cut that morning.
If you are looking for easy to cook meals at home, they also sell pre-marinated meat. I enjoyed sampling the chicken schnitzel!
After renovating, Market Place has installed freezers with doors so that minimal electricity is wasted.
Market Place also has a huge wine collection as well as a ‘Food of the World’ section, where you can find gourmet food from all over the world!
We thoroughly enjoyed our biscuits with this mushroom truffle!
To cater to the increasing demand for health food products, the supermarket also has a ‘Wellness’ section, featuring items like yoghurt pretzels and quinoa chips. Healthy doesn’t mean tasteless!
For busy people who are always on the go, the section below is just for you! The chiller is stocked with grab-and-go items like yoghurt, assorted sandwiches and even cooked meals!
I heard that their chicken briyani is to die for!
Last but not least, Market Place is also gearing up for the holiday season! With many festive items available on their shelves!
