LOOK: This new service will have FRESH items from the market delivered to you!

As a newbie to adulting, one of the things that I’m still trying to learn and get used to is going grocery shopping. Sure, going to the grocery to buy a few things for survival may be easy enough, but what about going to the actual market? With actual vegetables? And actual fish and meat? And other stuff that you’d have to know how to buy to get the freshest ones.

Aside from my lack of knowledge in buying fresh produce, the journey to the market is also an issue–especially with the traffic and the effort of lugging around heavy bags (carrying massive things is a big struggle for me).

But thank God for innovative people who make the simple things in life even easier!

Palengkero is a new service that delivers fresh produce from the market right to your doorstep.


Arthur James Amurao, one of the co-founders of Palengkero, shares that their service was a finalist at the 2018 Ideaspace Startup Competition. And why wouldn’t it be? It gives a simple solution to a simple issue we didn’t know we had!

The service is super easy to use–a child with internet access could literally do it. It’s just like ordering a meal from a fast food chain! Just go the Palengkero website, check out which items you need from their wide variety of market produce, add them to your e-cart, checkout, pay, and wait for your items.

They’ve got all the usual items you’d buy in an actual market. From different types of raw meat to fruits and vegetables, and even spices. Everything you need to cook a healthy homemade meal is all available on their site!

When we got the items we ordered, we got some of the fresh produce. The raw meat was fresh, as well as the fruits and vegetables. And if you don’t like one of the items they sent, you can have it replaced! Customer service at its finest, in my opinion.

It’s actually sulit for a service that does your shopping for you. With only a fee of PHP 60 plus shipping fee, you can have your market items delivered to you within just two hours! They’re currently available to Taguig, Pasig, Makati, Mandaluyong, Marikina, Quezon City, and Rizal.
