#FindYourGTCo at Foodie Market Place

With its main outlet nestled in the hipster neighbourhood of Tiong Bahru, and second outlet located in Tanjong Katong, Foodie Market Place has been the go-to shop to get fresh quality meats and cheeses at affordable prices since 2011. During the weekends, this little corner of Tiong Bahru is constantly bustling from the steady flow of expatriates and locals alike who drop by for their weekly shop.

Our range of Artisan Selection, ROJI teas and sparkling teas were just introduced into Foodie Market Place so we thought we’d pop by to check out their outlet in Tanjong Katong. During our visit, we also had a chat with Foodie Market Place founder, Don and he shared with us how his company started, his core values and plans for the future.

Here’s what we learned:

Foodie Market Place began on the simple belief that quality meats should not have to cost a premium. They wanted to make fresh meat more accessible, and share their passion for great quality products with consumers. So, they removed the middlemen and began selling meats without the additional price mark-ups.

Additionally, they assure customers that the cuts they offer are meats that they would buy for themselves as well. Thus, customers can be rest assured that the products the team recommends are items that they’ve tried as well and are worth getting.

Another thing that sets the company apart is the friendliness and warmth of the staff there. You step into the store not knowing where to start, but the friendly staff will guide you through, introducing you to various products that you are likely to enjoy. If you’re keen, they will even recommend complimentary products to pair with the meats you are bringing home! The warm and inviting atmosphere of Foodie Market Place has earned them a slew of regulars that have helped grow their following through word-of-mouth alone.

So what’s in the books for 2020?

Well, they are working on expanding their operations with a new factory. This will help them increase their efficiency in producing fresh products like sausages and patties, expand onto online deliveries and improve their stock management as well. They are also keen to begin workshops in their main store in Tiong Bahru where local brands can conduct mini sessions to share more about their products and brand too. Psst….we might do a pop-up workshop there in time too, so stay tuned 😉!

If you are ever on the hunt for fresh quality meats and would like a  recommendation or two, drop by Foodie Market Place to chat with the staff and find out what best suits you! And if you need something to quench your thirst, remember to grab a bottle of our sparkling tea! 😉
