What a great time to live in Hong Kong with so many wonderful new healthy companies launching every day! In fact, there are now so many new organic fruit and vegetable delivery services, we thought it was time for round two of our previous post: HK’s Top Organic Fruit & Veg Delivery. In our roundup below, we showcase locally farmed produce platforms and farm-direct businesses that, most of which have the benefit of being very budget-friendly. For the lazy amongst us, all of the options below can be ordered from the comfort of your couch (what is the humidity level again?), so start browsing and stock up on delicious produce for the week.
