The FairPrice Xtra at Parkway Parade is pretty large, on top of the usual sections that allow you to buy fresh produce and other household necessities, you can expect to find areas a few unique dedicated areas that might not be in most other FairPrice Xtra supermarkets.

There are five different zones in this FairPrice Xtra Parkway Parade. “Fresh and Local” section with fresh produce, products and catches, “The World’s Favourites” which brings meats, alcohol and treats from around the world, “Groceries, Home & Beauty Essentials” as well as a Dine-In & Fun Section which brings along several sections which can be found at the Parkway Parade supermarket.
Dine-In & Fun Sections
Not just a place to buy food to take back to your kitchen, customers can choose a protein or fresh produce of their choice to be prepared for them to eat on the spot or cooked in advance for the next meal.
If you enjoy Japanese food and getting Japanese produce, consider eating at the on-site sushi bar. Other than sushi rolls, they also serve a variety of Bento sets and sides such as yakimono (grilled meats), and agemono (deep-fried foods)
Ice Cream Counter
Those who are craving a sweet treat can get some delicious locally made ice cream by Alfero Gelato. Other than scoops of ice cream in a cone or cup as well as pints of ice cream to bring home, customers can get an ice cream cake or even an ice cream macaron to beat the heat!
Headed by Tiong Hoe Coffee, choose from 20 different origins of speciality coffee from places such as Asia, Africa and South and Central America. They serve both freshly made coffee as well as pre-made cold brew drinks.
A first for many supermarkets, customers who wish to enjoy an alcoholic drink or two can do so at the bar in FairPrice Xtra itself! They even have a “house-brand” cocktail such as the Fairprice Fizz!
With the large variety of food choices in the Parkway Parade FairPrice Xtra, it is all topped off with a section for customers to dine on-site.
Kids Play Area
There is also a kid’s play area with various arcade games and one or two rides. There is also a space that is currently being used to run various special promotions and workshops. Although this area seems a little scarce, there is probably going to be more activities as soon as COVID-19 restrictions are lifted in the future.
