The good thing about Session Groceries is that it allows you to do direct business with local farmers who often struggle to make a profit. What started out as a limited online platform is now an app that helps bring produce—including rice—to Metro Manila, Cavite, Laguna, Rizal, and Benguet. The delivery fee depends on how much you order, and will show up in the app.
This specialty grocery store offers organic and non-GMO vegetables like lettuce, okra, and tomatoes, and superfood crops like kale. Apart from that, they've got all-natural alternatives to cleaners and fragrances in addition to their supply of quality produce. Homegrown Organics is famous for their purple corn, too! Pro tip: They accept cash on delivery.
This charming store is a full-on deli, offering organic greens, meat, rice, coffee, and just about whatever you’ll need for your kitchen needs—or experiments, if you’ve got the time. If you place an order on a Sunday and spend a minimum of P1,000, they offer free delivery to Alabang, Makati, Bonifacio Global City, and Pasig.

These you can dump into boiling water for 10 minutes and you’ve got a meal you barely had to do any work for; they’re especially good for times of trouble because you can stockpile and freeze them for a bit, and bust them out when the supermarkets are full.
