iHerb

iHerb literally refines how an online shop can offer the ‘whole package’—they have almost any product you can ever think of, from beauty products to groceries and health supplements to electronics. You don’t even need to leave your house anymore! Their products are mostly cheaper than what you can find in-store, and they also have regular sales that will show you how much you are saving as well. Sure feels good when you know you’re saving!

How much: Delivery costs $4, or free with orders over $40

Eat The Kiwi

Want high-quality, home-delivered groceries at a great value? Eat The Kiwi is the one-stop-shop for you. They work directly with farmers and producers to cut out the middleman, guaranteeing better prices and more savings to share with their shoppers! Their online supermarket offers over 350 products, including fruits, vegetables, free-range meats, sustainably-sourced seafood, and more. All of their icepacks and boxes are recyclable, and they also use Woolcool’s environmentally responsible thermal insulating packaging to line their boxes to keep their produce frosty fresh. If that’s not cool enough, their packaging is also biodegradable, compostable, and sealed in recyclable food-grade HDPE!

How much: Delivery costs $80, or free with orders over $1,000

HKTVmall

Truly the eBay and Taobao of Hong Kong rolled into one, if it’s not available on HKTVmall, then it’s probably not worth having. Offering everything—and by golly, do we mean it—from supermarket staples, fresh vegetables and meats, homeware products, baby care essentials, toys and books, electrical appliances, beauty products, and more, shoppers can order through their website or mobile app for an incredibly convenient experience. You’ll spend hours just browsing through the staggering selection of goods.

Why the odd name? Well, the Hong Kong-based e-commerce giant once had grandiose plans to become a television station, but ultimately (and lucratively) settled on an over-the-top shopping and entertainment platform instead. Not a bad outcome, we’d say.

Farm Fresh 330

When it comes to knowing where your food has come from, you can’t beat Farm Fresh 330. These health shops sell vegetables which they have grown and harvested on their very own farm. Clueless when it comes to which vegetables are in season? Don’t worry, we are too, which is why we love the Veggies Combo—they put together a vibrant array of vegetables which are in their prime right now, delivered straight to your door. Plus, Farm Fresh 330 employs people recovering from mental illnesses, so by ordering your groceries, you are helping the community, too!

Nestled in the heart of Wan Chai, next to the wet market and a whole variety of local and speciality shops, Jou Sun has built up a close relationship with many trusted retail partners.

How much: Delivery costs $60–$70, or free with orders over $200 depending on location

British Essentials

Are you craving some Jaffa Cakes and a packet or two of Monster Munch? With a wealthy range of British grocery brands, including Morrisons’ exclusive label range, British Essentials is Hong Kong’s ultimate one-stop-shop for all things British. Whilst a handful of supermarkets in Hong Kong sell a few British grocery items here and there, their prices tend to be rather costly, but at British Essentials, you’ll find that most items are sold at a much lower price in comparison, giving shoppers more value for money. Now you have even more reason to stock up on Milkybars!
