Whether it’s Chinese New Year or Christmas, a birthday party or an extended family gathering at home, there’s always a reason to celebrate with a food feast here in Singapore. Tucked away in Woodlands Terrace is a continuous row of food factories that will give you the biggest bang for the buck, and satisfy both big and little tummies.
Woodlands Terrace Warehouses
We’re talking about a huge variety of food from sashimi, sausages, fishballs, pork knuckles and wagyu beef, to pies, cakes and ice cream that will be perfect for any party or barbeque you are thinking of hosting, but at factory outlet prices! This big food sale is open to the public even on weekdays, so you can enjoy a quieter little day out and stock up on your grub.
With at least two factories, including Foodedge Gourmet and Zac Meat & Poultry, giving away free food samples under their outdoor tents on the last Saturday of each month and during special sales before the festive seasons, the atmosphere turns carnival-like at this industrialised farmer’s market. Follow the food truck with us before you have a great little day out foraging at these Woodlands Terrace Warehouses.
All Year-Round Food Fantasies
Top up your tummy tank on the spot with the cheapest and freshest salmon sashimi in town and more at Fassler Gourmet. This seafood-specialty factory supplies over 200 freshly made seafood products to hotels and restaurants in Singapore, and you would have probably seen their famous blue and black packaging at the supermarkets. Fassler is where you can have fun walking right into an artic cold chiller to satisfy your fish fetish at rocket bottom deep sea prices (read about how you can Dive into a Fishy and Thrilling Chiller in our earlier story: Snow & All Things Icy Cold in Sunny Singapore).
