Skip your trips to the grocery store with these online grocers, delivering goods to your door at the click of a mouse!
Ah, parenting life. When you’re not lugging your children around, you’re carrying your body weight in shopping bags up hilly Hong Kong (so not fun!). And if you’ve got tweens and teens, your cupboards are probably empty two minutes after you fill them. Instead of schlepping back and forth 10 times a day, we like to do a lot of our shopping online. To help you out, we’ve sorted out the places that will deliver everything from baked goods to produce. All you’ll need to do now is select the delivery dates!
If you’re (finally) getting on board the eco-friendly trend (yay!), WHAT’sIN should be the first stop on your grocery list. Featuring a wide assortment of seasonal tropical and western organic fruits that have been sun-ripened in French Reunion Island or in the Mediterranean basin and selected by the finest HK chefs, it curates special boxes of fresh, delicious fruits and brings them straight to your door in an eco-friendly packaging. We’re especially impressed because its produce is not only healthy (we’re talking organic or free from harmful chemicals), it’s also affordable (30% to 40% cheaper compared to similar quality fruits in retail) and super tasty, which makes WHAT’sIN a great choice for families who have several hungry mouths to feed!
WHAT’sIN will also deliver fruit boxes to your door on a weekly or bi-weekly basis, ensuring you always have fresh fruits in the house. It also has a great selection of gift baskets that are right for any family occasion or corporate event, because who doesn’t love a yummy fruit basket? And if there is a problem with one fruit (we doubt that will happen!) they will replace it in your next box. Win-win!
For chilled delivery, fees range from $40 to $60 and are sent Tuesday to Saturday. Free delivery for clients subscribing for weekly or bi-weekly deliveries.
All Sassy Mama readers who use the code “FRUIT4SASSY” in the check-out page will receive 25% off their first order!

When feeding our families, we want to treat them to food that is free from antibiotics or hormones, and ideally we’d like to cook meat that is traceable, sustainable and very reasonably priced (we’ve got several hungry mouths to feed, after all!). That’s why we trust Farmer’s Market – it ticks all the boxes. With delivery across all of Hong Kong five days a week, and no minimum order (and if you order more than $500, delivery is free!), you can whip out a great recipe in no time. Just order before noon and your food will arrive the next day. Soon, you and your family will be enjoying a healthy, delicious meal that is so fresh you’ll be ordering from Farmer’s Market again and again!
Farmer’s Market is trustworthy, which we can’t say about a lot of shops in Hong Kong. The meat is totally traceable, which means Farmer’s Market knows exactly what the animals have been eating (100% grass-fed without hormones or antibiotics) and where they were raised (in the farmlands of Australia). You won’t have to worry about additives or freezer burn – you’ll just have to figure out how best to serve it!
All Sassy Mama readers will receive a FREE $100 voucher! Just enter the code “SASSYAUG” until 30 September, 2018 with any order of $500 or more and you’ll get $100 off!
