Health And Wellness Stores You Can Still Order From Now
Keep calm and stay healthy
A good diet is still one of your best defenses against the Covid-19 threat—and that means tons of fruits, vegetables, and superfood that can help boost your immune system.
But with the expansive lockdown and quarantine in place, many places are halting operations. Thankfully, we still have these wellness stores and online delivery platforms that can still provide you your healthy and organic cravings in time of Covid.
ECHOStore offers healthy dishes in their cafes, and health and wellness items from various local suppliers in their stores.
Currently, the Centris and Podium branches will be closed until further notice, including online deliveries through their website. However, the Salcedo branch located at the NDC Bldg., 116 Tordesillas St., Salcedo Village, Makati will still be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Take note that the Salcedo branch will offer items for pick-up; no dine-in allowed.
The Healthy Grocery
We need to incorporate superfood like quinoa, acai, spirulina, chia seeds, goji berries, wheatgrass and so much more into our diets now more than ever. But don’t worry if you need to restock on these hard-to-find superfood because The Healthy Grocery online store is still up and running.
For Metro Manila, orders will be sent out through third-party delivery services like Lalamove and Grab Express, both have announced that they will continue servicing in this time of need. The Healthy Grocery will also continue accepting orders from the provinces, although they can’t guarantee an exact delivery time. Expect delays in orders.

BukidFresh’s supply chain is a very unique concept, where orders are directly placed on local farmers, who directly provides the coffee, fruits, vegetables, mushrooms, and herbs and spices offered on their online shop. Orders are accepted at the BukidFresh website from Mondays to Thursdays, and then shipped out every Saturday.
Due to the quarantine and lockdown, BukidFresh has moved their cut-off earlier for this week’s delivery. However, they are guaranteeing everyone that they’re working with their logistics providers to assure that they can keep supplying fresh produce straight from the local farmers for the next weeks.
The Green Grocer prides itself in offering fresh produce straight from their partner farms, grass-fed meats, farm-direct dairy products, and all-natural substitutes, that can be delivered straight to customers’ homes.
They have two delivery cut-offs for Metro Manila orders to ensure that each batch is freshly harvested: order from Saturday to Sunday and get it delivered on Wednesday, or order from Monday to Thursday and get it delivered on Saturday. For those outside Metro Manila, you can still order processed and non-sensitive items, which will be shipped in 4-7 days through JRS or LBS.
Currently, The Green Grocer is operating business as usual so these cut-offs are still implemented. To order, visit The Green Grocer website here.
