Do your Grocery Shopping while Supporting Local
Grocery Shopping is an integral part of everyday living. We do love stocking up, even setting aside some for emergency purposes, and there’s no shame in that. However, with everyone stocking up and the fear from the pandemic still looming over our heads, there is no denying that stocks in our community and go-to groceries are running out as well, so here you are on the internet looking for alternative sources of your grocery needs.
Well, to make your life easier, we have gathered three online shops for you that would not only be able to help you, but in return help others as well, too! Do take note that these online delivery options are more on fresh goods and by that we mean vegetables, fruits, meats, eggs, rice, and some seafood!
Gulay Corner is an online community by Rise N Harvest Fruits and Vegetables Trading. Here you can order fresh goods and have it delivered right at your doorstep. All their available goods are locally sourced from their partner community of farmers from North & South, one of which in Cordillera. They usually have a pre-ordering system, but there are times when they have extra good, so do note that their full list of products change from time to time.
Their products ranges from fruits and vegetables to sausages, samgyupsal sets, and even rib-eye steaks!
Pakisama (Pambansang Kilusan ng mga Samahang Magsasaka) is a national movement and confederation of small farmer, fisher, indigenous people, rural women and youth organizations dedicated to building empowered, prosperous, and caring family farmers and resilient rural communities by ensuring their asset ownership and control, productivity and resiliency, product values addition and enhanced market power and meaningful participation in policy spaces and in public programs.

Refill on the Road is an online store that offers practical, accessible, and affordable refills, sold by the gram, for your staple goods like veggies, fruits, rice, among other things. They do door-to-door deliveries, highlighting the reduction of plastic usage as that is their mission, aside from helping and supporting local farmers.
They are also eyeing on being able to include coffee, personal, and even homecare products in what they are offering — hopefully, soon.
