  • Bangkok's best websites for online grocery shopping

Adams Organic

The store grows and sources certified organic fruits and vegetables from Northeastern Thailand. On top of a shop in Saladaeng and local delivery, they now also offer delivery service in Hong Kong.

The goods: A selection of over 70 fruits and vegetables rotating based on seasonality including Western veggies like curly kale, Swiss chard and purple haze carrot. Plus the likes of herbs and spices, edible flowers, eggs and rice.  

Ordering: Each week, they post on the website what’s available and the prices. Order by Tuesday to get your order delivered on Thursday or Friday of the same week. Payment can be made by cash on delivery, bank transfer, Prompt Pay, PayPal or credit cards.

Delivery: They deliver every Thursday and Friday to inner Bangkok and some other locations close to the supermarkets they supply. Delivery fee is B100 with a minimum spend of B500. You can also pick up at their Saladaeng store (no minimum order) or other pick-up locations (B200 minimum).

Delishop

Claiming to be the first genuine online supermarket in Thailand, this web-based outlet boasts some competitive prices.

The goods: The large selection of mostly imported products covers storable dry and canned items like pasta, cereals, soup, jam and canned vegetables. Some brands are actually new in Thailand and carry pretty impressive prices. There are also imported beverages like juices, sparkling water, syrups and wines, as well as dairy products.

Ordering: You’ll have to sign up for an account to check-out. There’s no minimum order required. Payment can be made through Paypal, credit card or with cash on delivery.

Delivery: For Bangkapi, Huai Khwang, Patumwan, Klongtoey and Sathorn districts, they promise same-day delivery if you place your order before noon. For these areas, it’ll be delivered the following morning if your order is placed before 4pm, and afternoon if after 4pm. Next-day delivery is applied to other areas for order placed before 2pm. You can choose a three-hour delivery window. Delivery is at the flat rate of B80 for all areas and free for orders above B1,200. You can also choose to pick up at their collection point, free of charge.
