One of the questions I often ask hawkers is "where do you get your fresh supplies"? Fresh quality fruits, vegetables, meat, poultry and fish is key to delicious food. Their reply often surprised me 😋
I was surprised when many hawkers told me that they get their supplies from Supplier S'Mart (or Pasar Pembakal) at S'Mart Pandan off Jalan Pandan beside McDonalds Tebrau (i.e. near to and along the same road as Tesco Tebrau and Jusco Tebrau).
So, we went to S'Mart to check it out ourselves. Then, we found out why S'Mart is so popular, and not only with hawkers.
S'Mart is also very popular with local families because they can get everything, all in one place 😊
I saw many fully loaded trolley carts 😀
We can handpick our fish, fruits and vegetables. Buying only the freshest.
S'Mart stalls are run by suppliers and goods are sold direct to customers. So, goods are fresh and very competitively priced.
So, after decades of shopping around in Johor Bahru, S'Mart is our first choice now for fresh food supplies.
I've already mentioned that the goods are fresh and competitively priced. I also appreciate it that S'Mart is bright and clean.
Even the fish and seafood section is kept dry. I saw that S'Mart put in a lot of effort in making sure that the floor is not wet or slippery. I am grateful that this greatly reduces any chance of slipping and falling on wet floors. This "wet" market is not wet 😀
As the goods at S'Mart are fresh, there is none of that usual wet market odour that put some folks off. No. Here, what I smell is the fragrance of fresh fruit and aromatic vegetables like waxy green pandan leaves 😀
The range of goods are comprehensive at S'Mart, so I can get everything I need, all at one place under one roof.
I like to wander around S'Mart because there are many interesting fruits, vegetables and fish, not commonly found in Singapore or other JB markets. The friendly fishmongers told me that this fish (I forgot the name) makes excellent asam pedas 😋
Banana blossom - not so common in Singapore wet markets these days.
Parking at S'Mart is plentiful, orderly and free of charge.
Midas S'Mart Platinum card members even have their own designated sheltered parking area 😃
Midas S'Mart also takes customer care to an uncommon level. Every year, Midas S'Mart honour their most loyal customers with a Top Spender awards ceremony.
Top spenders are treated to a sumptuous and scrumptious buffet spread at the Top Spender awards ceremony.
Top Spenders and their families were entertained by a live band while enjoying lunch.
Top Spenders were presented with trophies, cash, cash vouchers and other premium gifts 😃
Midas S'Mart is having anniversary celebrations till 30 Nov 2016. They have many special offers including Crazy Hour Sales where you can buy a whole fresh chicken and other goodies for just RM1.
I know lah, inform you only so late - but, better late than never lor 😂 There is still time to score some big bargains. So, don't say bo jio 😃
