Chinese New Year Part 8 - Vegetable wholesale in a farm

As you guys read through the blog, you may be wondering why most of the places relate to food or a derivation of food products? Well to those not in the loop, Singaporeans love food.

In this festive session we have made the effort to introduce more places that sell food and products that are relevant to Chinese New Year. Once February starts, we will start to introduce places that are deemed to be more educational in nature!

In a nice continuance from the previous post, we will be introducing a vegetable wholesale center that resides right in a farm! The vegetables sold are harvested daily from the farm itself; you cannot get any fresher vegetables than that!

The Vegetable Gardener's Bible (10th Anniversary Edition)Situated in Lim Chu Kang, the vegetables so gathered are then sold at dirt cheap pricess. For me (who does not cook) I am especially attracted to their wheat grass drinks, mango jelly and the giant fishes kept in the tank!

Also found in this vegetable farm are gigantic fishes called Arapaima gigas or Dragon Fish in local terms. It is almost two metres long. Take a look in the picture below. For more info on this fish see this Wikipedia entry.

Vegetable wholesale in a farm is classified as part of Farm Tours.
