Greenify your diet with these 14 local farm-to-table brands delivering in Klang Valley

I’ll admit that since I started working from the office again, I’ve been eating out more, and not very healthily as vegetables aren’t always the main component in plenty of Malaysian dishes.

Shopping for veggies at the grocery store can be intimidating as well, since I’m unsure of how to cook them or what they’ll taste like (and whether I’d like their flavours).

One benefit of buying them online then is that websites generally have more information on what to expect from each vegetable, whether it’s about their flavour profile, nutritional value, or how they can be incorporated into dishes.

Hence, here’s a non-exhaustive list of 14 local brands we found that sell fresh greens online and can deliver them around the Klang Valley to make adopting healthy eating easy. Cumulatively, their offerings are of a variety that ranges from salad greens to microgreens, herbs, and more.

1. Babylon Vertical Farm
