Where to Buy Fresh Fruits and Vegetables Online?
Manila, Philippines — While we’re obliged to stay at home during the Enhanced Community Quarantine period, there’s no denying the struggles during these trying times, and one of those we find the hardest is buying the necessities for a week or two.
Eat your fruits and vegetables. This might sound repetitive these days but a very effective way to boost our immune system – but for those who want to avoid the crowd in the market and be extra safe from getting infected – is having them delivered right in front of our doorsteps.
Food delivery is also the new normal. And in case you missed it, Session Groceries is fully operational this quarantine period and is ready to deliver fresh and locally grown food through their app store.
Session Groceries Farm to Table is an app that connects local farmers and consumers to support local agribusiness, promote a sustainable lifestyle and educate the local community on the benefits of eating fresh, locally grown food. They deliver around NCR, Cavite, Laguna, Rizal, and Benguet. available for both cash-on-delivery and online payment.
How They Started
Session Groceries is co-owned by Iloisa Romaraog and started delivering to households in Baguio in 2018. Not only do they reach their market through online selling, but they also aim to help farmers make a better living by getting steady income for harvests than what they usually receive from traditional markets.
How it helps the farmers
One of the many ways we can help and reward our Filipino farmers is through ordering at Session Groceries. They allow customers to buy directly from the farmers from veggies to rice and any other local produce in between—and have them delivered to your home.
In one of the interviews, Iloisa mentioned how the app has helped farmers send their kids to school and sustain their family farms.
If you would check out their social media accounts, they offer special packages comprised of rice, various vegetables, and fruits that match your budget.

There is no minimum order for buyers, but buying in bulk would help farmers in minimizing expenses for the delivery to Session Groceries.
I am also thankful that I have a fast and reliable SMART LTE connection. I no longer need to worry about the long queues on the supermarket as I can order fresh fruits and vegetables online. Best of all, I’m able to help local farmers in Benguet.
